Kevin's Regular Recommendations

KEVIN: Like everyone on staff here, Kevin reads across a broad spectrum of authors and genres. His favorites are sci-fi, especially the "Golden Age" authors; fantasy; local history; monster lit; middle readers and young adult books combining fantasy, adventure, and/or stories about animals; unusual history; or natural science essays. Trained as a massage therapist and certified as a personal trainer, Kevin can also recommend books on exercise, rehabilitation, training, and weight lifting, as well as some books on nutrition and diet. With his experience as a entrepreneur, Kevin has excellent suggestions for marketing and PR for small businesses, and for writers who wish to improve their sales. Although Kevin has written many nonfiction columns over the years, it is his fantasy-adventure-cryptid-mythology fiction (for children and for adults!) that is currently bringing him attention and fun! See Kevin's author page for more info!
