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 telling stories. Tired of reading the same stories over and over, he started to make up his own magical 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 his stories and wished he had written them down.

Kevin loves Historical Fiction, writers such as Bernard Cornwell, Simon Scarrow and Con Iggulden adorn his bookshelves. So it seemed natural that if Kevin was going to write something down then it would have to be in this genre. 

On a long journey home from North Devon he came up with the idea of a set of historical adventures that children and young adults would hopefully find compelling. Thus Michael Saxon was born and Kevin decided that Waterloo would be a good introduction. Mr Cornwells' Sharpe may have had something to do with that as many fond 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 multitude of historical periods he can visit. He also writes for adults too and these books will appear in due course.

Kevin is also an artist and poet and will be sharing some of his work on his blog from time to time for you all to enjoy.

He is always happy to answer any question you may have so feel free to get in touch.
