“They Might Be Giants”Michael, Matthew, and Kevin Coyle

Giant’s Causeway, Ireland (June 2010)

A native of Rosedale, Queens, Kevin Coyle earned a BA in Journalism from New York University and a JD from the Fordham University School of Law. After weathering five Vermont winters, Kevin and his sons, Matthew and Michael, moved south of the Mason-Dixon Line. They live near Greenville, South Carolina while Kevin “telecommutes” to his law firm in Vermont. Kevin married Heather in March 2011.

Kevin has been writing since the third grade, when he made his debut with a science-fiction short story entitled “The People from the Purple Planet.” He taped together the six individual sheets of looseleaf paper to make a poster and drew spaceships in crayon over the lackluster prose. This bit of showmanship caught his teacher’s attention and was reflected in his grade.

Kevin was named the “Featured Writer” for the Spring 2006 edition of Ampersand, and received the “Distinction Award” for fiction published in the December 2010 issue of Midwest Literary Magazine. His stories have also appeared in the Winter Canons anthology as well as the following periodicals: MetamorphosesNOVA Science Fiction Magazine, Noneuclidean Cafe, The Writers Post Journal, Buffalo Carp, RAGAD, Bewildering Stories, the premiere issue of The Literary Bone, Johnny America, Poor Mojo’s Almanac(k), the first two issues of moonShine review, Catfish Stew, and the fiction supplement to the Washington Square News. Three times he has received Honorable Mention (the top 10-15% of all entries per quarter) in L. Ron Hubbard’s “Writers of the Future” Contest. He is hard at work on a novel.

Kevin has been a member of the South Carolina Writers Workshop since 2002. In 2007, he launced The Petigru Review, SCWW’s new-and-improved literary journal. He served as editor for three years.
