Meet Author C. Kevin Thompson

Hello fans! You've picked a fantastic week to stop by. . .we're featuring the brilliant author C. Kevin Thompson. He has been a participant in the Authors in the Park Event Series and has drawn quite a crowd to the events. We are honored to have him on the JLBC Blog, and hope you enjoy his unique feature post.

Before we get to Kevin though, we just have to tell you the amazing news. JLB Creatives Executive Team member Jean E. Lane attended the Prague International Book Fair! How cool is that? If only you could have seen her smiling face as she boarded the plane. She has been a participant in the London International Book Fair, and has also spoken at the Orlando Science Center in Florida regarding her Lill and Mewe series for readers ages 8-10. To discover her amazing science "faction" books please visit her website by clicking here: Author Jean E. Lane.

And now. . .on with the show! Please welcome

Author C. Kevin Thompson

If you like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, into tofu, and have half-a-brain, then I’m not your guy. I like “smart” fiction (the kind that makes you think – and that’s what I write, BTW), real cheese, watching it rain from a dry location, and Coca-Cola. I’m a down-to-earth guy who likes to laugh, loves family, and loves college football.

Here's everything you ever wanted to know about me. . .and probably more.

Writing is my therapy. Some people fish. Others crochet. Others garden. I write. But I also play drums for my church’s praise team, work as an assistant principal, and believe the technology of Star Trek is on its way quicker than you think.

Beam me up, Scotty.
