Who is Kevin S Hall?
“I am Kevin Hall, an upcoming author who has recently had two short stories published in Holiday Horror 2014.
I’ve been writing stories since I was ten but only recently decided to pursue a career in writing full time. I have a long way to go yet but I hope to make it big with my upcoming Raven’s Edge novel, a ghost story said in a forgotten Scottish ghost town.
I have done Nightmares Before Christmas which you can find on my Black Hole page on Facebook – short horror stories and poems for the festive period which I hope you will all enjoy.
I am currently working on finishing Thirteen, which is a collection of 13 short horror stories and is over 100,000 words so far! I hope to finish it soon but it’s sometimes hard finding the time.
I am still 33 and will be 34 this year so I hope it’s not too late to become a successful author – I hope to get out of my rubbish job one day but take each day at a time and try to write lots.
I have to say my influences are Stephen King (Pet Sematary being my all time favourite book and movie), James Herbert, Dean Koontz, Tolkien and Terry Pratchett to name but a few!
I am a sci-fi, fantasy and horror fan and love comics and Doctor Who. I am not afraid to be a geek – in fact I love it and wouldn’t change it for the world. I may be mocked at work and made to look stupid but I am not and hope to rise up and show them all one day that I can and will be better than they are!
Hope you all like my work and feel free to leave comments and let me know how I can improve on my writing. We are all in this together and even if you only write a little a day it’s better than none at all. I look forward to getting to know you all a lot better and making new friends like I have with Samie and so many others.
Here’s to many wonderful years of writing together!”
