Some of Ken’s favorites are early mornings, the desert in spring, kind and honest people, baseball and other sports played by those who don’t take themselves too seriously, most kids, and films he and his Zoe can enjoy together.
He reads a lot.
He has long been the author of novels, stories, articles, poems, and essays. Lots of honors have come his way, including a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship; Poets, Essayists and Novelist’s Ernest Hemingway Award; Private Eye Writers of America Best First Novel and Shamus Best Novel; and several San Diego and Los Angeles Book Awards.
Though he advocates beer in a video, he actually prefers Scotch.
Here are some of the kind words written about Ken’s work:
“… brings a great new character — and a fresh voice — into the mystery field.” Novelist Tony Hillerman
“A wonderful, literate, and very ambitious novel that does everything a good story should do. It surprises, delights, it jolts and makes you think .” Novelist T. Jefferson Parker
“… a pleasure to read.” Novelist Anne Tyler
“Elegant, eloquent, and elegiac, Kuhlken’s novels sing an old melody, at the same time haunting and beautiful.” Novelist Don Winslow
