About the Author
Kevin lives in Farmington, NM with his wife of 37 years, their Yorkshire Terrier, T. Bone Dickens and their Siamese cat Josee Peri Le Chocolat – all find their way into the pages of his books. He is 61 years old and was diagnosed in 2009 with Parkinson’s disease, although he lived with it for years prior. He is an ordained Baptist pastor and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in theology. He served as a pastor of a Baptist church in North Idaho for ten years.
After losing his job, he found himself unable to continue his hobby of fixing and repainting cars. He turned to writing. He always enjoyed creative writing, but rarely did it. He found that he felt physically better when he wrote creatively. He describes it as fun. He began writing his memoirs and submitted stories to magazines. He found others liked them and published them. He has won several awards at Humorpress.com and one at the Storyteller. He finds writing therapeutic and it fits into an unpredictable schedule – he writes what he can, when he can.
He currently has three books, “I Forgot That I Remembered,” a humorous look at his life with Parkinson’s disease, ”Just Me: Humorous, Helpful and Odd” which consists of stories from throughout his life, and his gospel ventriloquism book, “I Know What You Know, Adventures in Gospel Ventriloquism” featuring Youtube links to the scripts in the book. He currently writes a daily devotion called “Tugs & Nudges” and a series of ventriloquism “pictoons.”
He currently challenges himself with ventriloquism. This includes the making of characters, writing of skits and performing them. He says this helps him fight Parkinson’s by doing things he enjoys.
