Thank you for showing an interest in my work and background. My name is Kenneth Mark Hoover and I am a professional writer. I am also a member of SFWA and HWA.
I have sold over fifty short stories and articles to professional and semi-professional magazines. My first science fiction novel, FEVREBLAU, was published by Five Star Press in 2005 and sold out its first print run. I am at present working on dark western short stories set in the mythical town of Haxan, New Mexico, circa 1874. My newest novel, HAXAN, has been accepted by ChiZine Publications and will be released at the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014.
I attend as many science fiction conventions as I can and am happy to meet new writers and readers. So feel free to drop by and say hello!
I was born in deep Louisiana sugarcane country but grew up in South Texas. I have two degrees, one in journalism and a bachelors degree in physics with a chemistry minor. My main passions outside writing include chess, amateur astronomy, shotokan karate and politics. I am an unabashed Yellow Dog Democrat and an opinionated bookworm. My musical tastes run from Tchaikovsky to Rob Zombie. I have worked as a surveyor, an educator and a salesman, but my first love is writing. I currently live near Dallas, TX.
I also run an Internet station called Theater 13 Radio. We broadcast Old Time Radio programs of suspense, mystery and horror. Please drop by anytime and listen to these classic programs!
