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, and WWA.
I have sold over 60 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 novel, HAXAN, has been published by ChiZine Publications. The new novel QUATERNITY will be released in 2015 by CZP.
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 used to run an Internet station called Theater 13 Radio. We broadcasted Old Time Radio programs of suspense, mystery and horror. I no longer run Theater 13, but I really do miss it, and I still love OTR!
