Ken Kuhlken

After borrowing time from his youthful passions, such as baseball, golf, romance, and trying to make music, to earn degrees in literature and writing from San Diego State University and the University of Iowa, Ken got serious (more or less).

Since then, his stories have appeared in Esquire and dozens of other magazines, and anthologies, been honorably mentioned in Best American Short Stories, and earned a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. He has been a frequent contributor and a columnist for the San Diego Reader.

Ken's Hickey Family crime novels are:

The Biggest Liar in Los Angeles (L.A. Book Festival best mystery); The Good Know Nothing; The Venus Deal; The Loud Adios, (Best First PI Novel); The Angel Gang,; The Do-Re-Mi, (Shamus best novel); The Vagabond Virgins; Midheaven (Ernest Hemingway Award); The Very Least; and The Answer to Everything.

He lives in La Mesa, CA with his remarkable daughter Zoe, a loyal cat, and four chickens.
