KA Barron, or Kevin, as he is known outside of book covers, was born in England. Descended from restless ancestors on both sides of his family, he has lived and travelled in a number of countries. Currently he lives in Auckland, New Zealand with his wife and young sons. He likes to believe he's still travelling because there are palm trees on his street and a volcano in the harbour, neither of which are normal where he comes from. Kevin writes fantasy fiction which involves alternate worlds and universes and contains elements that could be considered flintlock or gunpowder fantasy. Ultimately, he enjoys a good yarn and fantasy gives him the freedom to make up his own rules at the same time. Unable to keep to one genre, he has also published travel books and even some nonsense verse. There's much more in the pipeline, including various forms of romantic comedy and some business books. There really aren't enough hours in the day. He enjoys themes of drama, transformation and redemption. He'd rather feel uplifted by his reading, so generally writes with that aim himself. That doesn't mean that the road to redemption is an easy one, or that everyone gets redeemed.
