“Kerry takes me somewhere I hadn't previously imagined and lets me live there for a while. His characters are well drawn, his situations thought-provoking, and he writes so smoothly that I can forget I'm actually sitting safe in my chair...”
Kathy Tyers, New York Times bestselling author
Kerry Nietz is an award-winning science fiction author. He has over a half dozen speculative novels in print, along with a novella, a couple short stories, and a non-fiction book, FoxTales.
Kerry’s novel A Star Curiously Singing won the Readers Favorite Gold Medal Award for Christian Science Fiction and is notable for its dystopian, cyberpunk vibe in a world under sharia law. It is often mentioned on “Best of” lists.
Among his writings, Kerry's most talked about is the genre-bending Amish Vampires in Space. AViS was mentioned on the Tonight Show and in the Washington Post, Library Journal, and Publishers Weekly. Newsweek called it “a welcome departure from the typical Amish fare.”
Kerry is a refugee of the software industry. He spent more than a decade of his life flipping bits, first as one of the principal developers for the now mythical Fox Software, and then as one of Bill Gates's minions at Microsoft. He is a husband, a father, a technophile and a movie buff.
A little podcast cameo...
June 17, 2021
One of the story-fuel podcasts I enjoy listening to is Astonishing Legends. Week by week, hosts Forrest Burgess and Scott Holbrook deep dive into legends both popular and obscure. Bigfoot, hauntings, aliens, lost airships, and sundown clowns--you name it--they've probably covered it. They also allow listeners to record segue segments. So I did! Catch my voice at about the 29:05 mark at the link below. Fun stuff.
