Kevin G. Summers was born in Washington, D.C. in 1974 and grew up in the Virginia suburbs. His interest in writing began at an early age. When he was a small child, his mother brought him along to her master-level writing classes at George Mason University, where Kevin sat in on lectures by John Irving, John Gardener and Susan Shreve.
Kevin is the author of the critically-acclaimed short story ISOLATION WARD 4, as well as several other stories set in the Star Trek universe. His short story THE BELL CURSE was the very first tale published in The World of Kurt Vonnegut under the Kindle Worlds imprint.
Kevin raises heritage hogs on his family farm and teaches writing at various colleges and libraries in Northern Virginia. He lives in an 100-year old farmhouse in Amissville, Virginia with his beautiful wife Rachel and their children Morwen, Ingrid and Roland.

Dan Persons says:
And you thought stop-motion figures taking swift kicks to the crotch defined the work of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the people behind Adult Swim’s ROBOT CHICKEN and TITAN MAXIMUM. Not quite, Chuck-o — the studio is turning out an increasing variety of shows, including its most recent, FRIENDSHIP ALL-STARS OF FRIENDSHIP, a web series that tracks the genial relationships between such BFFs as John Lasseter and Luis Guzmán, and Batmen Michael Keaton and George Clooney.
The most high-profile face behind Stoopid Buddy is Seth Green, but joining him in piloting the company are Matthew Senreich, Eric Towner, and John Harvatine IV. I got to speak with Matt, Eric and Harv (as his friends call him) to discuss FRIENDSHIP’s sunny worldview, the pressures of Emmy season, and the Freudian implications of show titles.
