Kenneth Nichols has been writing for a very long time.  All he’s ever really wanted is to share his stories with a large audience.  His primary inspiration has been his father, who has always been a big reader, but finds it difficult to connect with much of the contemporary literary scene.  Kenneth wants to remind millions of people who already love stories that reading is not homework.

Kenneth earned his MFA in Creative Writing from The Ohio State University and has published fiction, nonfiction and poetry in a wide range of markets.  He is also the creator of the writing craft web site Great Writers Steal.  His work has appeared in Prime Number, CHEAP POP, Lunch Ticket, and a number of other publications.
