Some of Ken’s favorites are early mornings, the desert in spring, kind women, baseball and other sports played by those who don’t take themselves too seriously, people who tell the truth, most kids, and films he and his Zoe can enjoy together.
He reads classic novels, philosophy, and all sorts of mysteries. On his blog, he often rants or speculates about living as a writer.
He has long been the author of novels, stories, articles, poems, and essays. Lots of honors have come his way, including a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship; Poets, Essayists and Novelist’s Ernest Hemingway Award; Private Eye Writers of America Best First Novel and Shamus Best Novel; and several San Diego and Los Angeles Book Awards.
Though he advocates beer in a video, he actually prefers Scotch.
