About the Author

Kevin L. McDonald

I’m a geek. I love working with computers and technology. It’s both my “real job” and a hobby. In that respect, it almost feels like I’m cheating. I get paid for doing what I love.

I spent about fifteen years as a computer and network administrator, but now I spend most of my time working on a corporate web site, managing projects and doing tech-related writing.

I love to read, but haven’t done enough of it lately.  I tore through Charlie Huston’s “Joe Pitt Casebooks” series in the Spring of 2010, and enjoyed it thoroughly. All in all, I live a rather peaceful life enjoying family, friends, games and technology. I’m happy.

I’ve been writing in one form or another since I was very young. Chances are, I’ve kept most of it somewhere. I tend to do that. A lot of it is here (but not my childhood poetry, sorry. :-).

I pursue writing simply for the fun of it. I’m thirty-eight years old as of this writing. I earned an associates degree in English in 2003. Aside from “Ask the Geek,” I’ve had two short stories published in a magazine, and two poems published by a university publication (and it wasn’t a university that I have actually attended, so, bonus!).

I wrote a 55,000-word novel a few years ago.  You’ll probably never read it – but I’m glad I did it.

One of the most important things in my life is my family. I’ve got four kids at home who I adore and a wife who has put up with my shenanigans for nearly twenty years now, for better or for worse. She deserves a medal, or psychoanalysis, or both.

This web site is a central place for me to locate the things I write. I welcome any comments or critiques of anything posted here. Above all, thank you for visiting, and thank you for reading!
