Kevin G. Summers is a science fiction author best known for his novels Legendarium and The Bleak December, a 2017 Dragon Award nominee. He also wrote several short stories set in the STAR TREK universe, including the critically acclaimed Isolation Ward 4, which made the preliminary ballot of the 2002 Nebula Awards.
Kevin grew up Northern Virginia, in a household where authors were viewed as folk heroes. When he was a child, his mother brought him along to her master-level writing classes at George Mason University, where he sat in on lectures by John Irving and John Gardner. As he grew up, he fell in love with literature, especially the works of Kurt Vonnegut, Thornton Wilder, John Steinbeck, J.R.R. Tolkien and Stephen King. When he wasn’t sitting the feet of these literary Jedi, he spent every waking minute playing Dungeons & Dragons, watching Star Trek.
Kevin lives on a working dairy farm in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in a farmhouse that was built in 1910 but isn’t haunted, at least as far as he can tell. He describes himself as an Ecclesiastes 1:17 man married to a Proverbs 31 woman.
