Kevin Curtin began his writing career forging excused absence notes from his parents in school. He later studied at Michigan State University where he received a degree in journalism and got staph-infection twice. Kevin traveled the United States extensively by hitchhiking. He also traversed 25,000 miles (equal to the circumference of Earth) in an old RV. Though he often drove without destination, he never strayed from his path of study: gaining perspective on a place through understanding it's people...or was it the other way around. Now he spends a lot of time volunteering as an adult literacy instructor and even more with his hands on a keyboard, telling stories in the most interesting and honest way he can.
