Kevin Candela

Kevin Candela grew up in Southern Illinois on the rich fantasy and science fiction of the 1950s and 1960s. So inspired was he by the movies and TV shows of that era that he ended up spending almost two decades as an aerospace engineer, a time he now regards as "background building" for his writing. Honing his communication skills teaching physics and engineering at local colleges and universities, he completed his first work - a "fan fiction" sequel to the 1998 American Godzilla movie - in 1999. He began work on his Dragon's Game Trilogy the same year, his last in the aerospace industry, and self-published the original version of Mushroom Summer, the trilogy's first installment, through AuthorHouse Books in 2005. Since 2014 he's been self-publishing prolifically and currently has over a dozen novels, more than twenty published works including an ongoing novella series, and sixteen audio books released with many more on the way. He also shows up in a lot of indie anthologies. A big fan of the supernatural, D and D and rock and roll--especially the Stones--Kevin lives with wife Jackie, who acts as his editor on top of everything else she does, and a number of cats who mostly don't mind public mentions like these.
