Kevin Kuhn lives in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, with his wife Melinda, three children, and two fierce schnoodles. He is a technology executive who enjoys sipping cheap bourbon, avoiding yard work, and living vicariously through his children's sports. While Kevin has no musical skill whatsoever, he appreciates a broad spectrum of artists from Pink Floyd to Prince and Radiohead to the Rolling Stones. His golf game is horrific with flashes of mediocrity. Kevin is proud to be a member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.

It’s an illusion. As a writer you get to take as long as you like to develop your story. You get to agonize over a chapter, or a paragraph, or a single sentence for days or weeks or months. You get to rewrite over and over and over. Like a painter, you can create your base story and then add more depth and details over time. You get to find *most* of your mistakes and your inconstancies and fix them before a reader sees the first word. But the reader gets it all at once. They have the illusion that you created it in a single stroke. That the story and characters just flowed out your fingers in a single moonlit evening. That is the trick. And that is, at least for me, one of the best things about writing.(less)

I want a reader who’s ready to leave their day behind, take my hand, and lose themselves.

I want a reader who can see the possibilities but is willing to travel my path.

I want a reader who’s willing to laugh out loud in a crowded, quiet room.

I want a reader who seeks the inferences, and the connections, and the questions.

I want a reader who writes in the margins and underlines their favorite phrases.

I want a reader who’s brings their own lens and finds their own interpretations.

I want a reader who's open to new perspectives and finds themselves a little changed at the end of the journey.(less)

message 1: by Kevin

Kevin Kuhn Friends,

Very excited that Kirkus has completed a review of my novel and I'm very pleased. Take a read.

https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-re...

If you're not aware, Kirkus is one of the few remaining major book reviewers. They are well respected in the industry.

Thanks,

Kevin
