we will be posting the show shortly…
My first experience reading the work of Kealan Patrick Burke was when I picked up (via Kindle that is) his brilliant and bloody redneck-freak-out ‘Kin’:
That was about 3 years ago and since then I have read even more of his work and have found his characters and use of language both engaging and thought provoking. I would dig into it more here, but frankly, we are about to interview Kealan and I am sure we will be talking in depth about the joy his works brings my slightly damaged and undernourished psyche.
Kealan writes short stories, short novels and novels. Kealan is also active on Twitter and you should follow him:
here is a bit of an intro stolen from Kealan’s website (link below)
Born and raised in a small harbor town in the south of Ireland, Kealan Patrick Burke knew from an early age that he was going to be a writer. The combination of an ancient locale, a horror-loving mother, and a family of storytellers, made it inevitable that he would end up telling stories for a living. Since those formative years, he has written five novels, over a hundred short stories, six collections, and edited four acclaimed anthologies. In 2004, he was honored with the Bram Stoker Award for his novella The Turtle Boy.
Kealan has worked as a waiter, a drama teacher, a mapmaker, a security guard, an assembly-line worker, a salesman (for a day), a bartender, landscape gardener, vocalist in a grunge band, curriculum content editor, fiction editor at Gothic.net, and, most recently, a fraud investigator.
When not writing, Kealan designs book covers through his company Elderlemon Design.
A number of his books have been optioned for film.
you can find his work on Kindle with much of it on Kindle Unlimited:
