I'm Kenton Kilgore. Yes, that's my real name

My name really is “Kenton Kilgore.” I get asked that a lot. I started writing stories in the 4th Grade, I wrote my first novel when I was 11, and I haven’t stopped.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English Lit from the University of Maryland College Park, where I focused on Shakespeare, creative writing, mythology, and sci-fi and fantasy. I have a Master’s Degree in English Lit from Washington College in Chestertown.

I’ve self-published five books: three novels, one children’s picture book, and a non-fiction guide to help authors sell books. I’m working on another novel—Stray Cats—that I expect to publish late this year.

I’m a big fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins, Warhammer 40K, and riding motorcycles. I’m hardcore Catholic. My family and I live on Kent Island, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, with too many dogs and cats.
