K.C. (Kevin) Gillis is the author of the Jordan Reed mystery series. Despite being a lifelong lover of stories and books, writing took a distant back seat as his professional career travelled through the Canadian Air Force, a decade as a chemist, followed by a long and continuing run in corporate America. With writing no longer in the back seat (but not quite yet in the front seat), Kevin has the initial novels (plus one novella) in the Jordan Reed series well under way. His personal interests focus on endurance and water sports, and obviously a lot of reading!. Having grown up in the Canadian Maritimes, he now lives in the US northeast.

He can be found online at www.kcgillis.com. You can connect with Kevin on Twitter at @kcgilliswriter, on

Sometimes I literally stare at the screen, hoping for inspiration. But what works more often than not is to force myself to just write something, even if it might not actually fit with what I'm trying to do. The act of writing somehow opens my mind and I find I can often write myself back on track.(less)

First, the act of creation, and bringing a writing project to completion, is very satisfying. Actually holding a finished book is quite rewarding. Second is the flexibility to be able to do the work pretty much anywhere. While my full-time job doesn't allow me the flexibility of a full-time author, I love to take advantage of different writing locations, usually ones that serve coffee or something more adult!(less)

Thoughts on a pandemic…

The end of an era.



Let me start with three quick points.





First, I have been stupidly silent for too long. There is no excuse. Not really. But the combination of several events happening in close temporal proximity colluded to sap my focus. From changing jobs (but yes, I still have a non-writing job) to the pandemic-induced elimination of many things I unknowingly relied upon, I floated along for the
