Story of Kevin Heads Author and Poet
Kevin was born in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in 1962. He grew up in Cramlington Northumberland where he met his wife Sue. It was when his children were born that Kevin started tell stories. Tired of reading Thomas the Tank Engine over and over to his son, he started to make up his own tales. He invented characters that his children loved and intertwined them into incredible adventures, Now grown with children of their own, they have never forgotten the stories he told them.
Kevin loves Historical Fiction, writers such as Bernard Cornwell, Simon Scarrow and Con Iggulden adorn his bookshelf. So it seems natural that if Kevin was going to write something down then it would be in this genre.
However he noticed that there was a lack of historical fiction for the younger generation and thought that was sad.
Thus Michael Saxon was born and Kevin decided that Waterloo would be a good introduction. Mr Cornwells' Sharpe may have something to do with that as many evenings were spent watching the T.V adaptation with his son Sam.
Kevin is now retired and writes full time. He plans to continue his Michael Saxon series, as he says there is a sea of historical periods he can visit. He also writes for adults and these books will appear in due course.
So Kevin invites you to dip your toe into the imagination of a modern Skald and listen to the stories he tells.
