Meet the Author

Hi! I'm K.C. May. Thanks for visiting my author page.

I grew up in the mid-western USA and in Hawaii, and earned a B.A. in Russian from Florida State University. After a year in Taiwan teaching English and studying Mandarin Chinese, I lived in the Arizona desert where I founded a Rottweiler rescue organization, studied karate, went backpacking, tried sky-diving, did some downhill skiing, got a couple motorcycles, wrote software, and spent time on the shooting range. In 2010, I retreated to cooler, greener Georgia. I earn my living as a full-time writer.

My first novel, The Kinshield Legacy, was initially published in hard-cover in 2005. Now it's available as an eBook and in paperback. It was named one of the four best reads of 2010 by review blogger Grace Krispy at DailyCheapReads.com.

My second novel, The Venom of Vipers, is an earth-based science fiction thriller I released December 1, 2010. It was named one of the 15 best reads of 2010 by review blogger Rob Duperre on The Journal of Always.

The sequel to The Kinshield Legacy, titled The Wayfarer King, is now available here.

I hope you enjoy my stories!

    Sweet, but short

    Although this is a sweet story, it is just too short to really develop the plot and leaves too many questions unanswered. I liked the moral, though.

    Beautiful sweet flash

    Some people who review amaze me but to stay true to this story i will be kind. This was a great flash story with a beautiful message. For future readers of it: clear your mind, read it slowly and then read it again and you will get it and the few pages the author used said so much about the rewards of a good kind heart who has love to give.

    Nice story

    Short and sweet ! Quick read. Earth angels who feel our pain and suffering. When we respond in kindness it doesn't just stop with us, it becomes a snowball rolling down hill and many good things occur. I'm so surprised at the other responses.

    Kindness

    Good, short but sweet. Didn't expect the ending. 10 pages of reading. Reaching out to others, not giving up on human nature, believing!

    Word wise

    Fast read, interesting the way the author plays the characters. You'll read it more than once and enjoy it more the 2nd time than the first.
    Usually character development helps a story, not so this one. It's good they're so vague.

    Surprise ending

    Sweet story. The family isn,t seeking money they really are seeking kindness. I wonder if they are angels or ghosts. But they find kindness in a woman alone in a park and repay her kindness with secret gifts to help her, like convincing her landlord to let her keep the puppy. It has been said animals can see spirits, so this puppy can see the family the woman cannot. Beautiful message.

    Read it for what it is, a short short short story. A very good one.

    For anonymous of January 31, 2011 and July 17, 2011, read it again. After your combined billion plus readings, you still don't have your facts straight. What are the children going to do at the end of the story?
