BIOGRAPHY

Growing up I was an avid fan of comics and cartoons. Most of my favorites centered around "team" mechanics, like the Avengers, X-Men, JLA, Bionic Six, Dungeons and Dragons and many others. I enjoyed how everyone worked together to combat evil, but at times ran the show from a single perspective.

I also loved the aspect of witchcraft, the supernatural, and the unseen world. I quickly became fascinated by the massive amounts of information available on the subjects while supplying myself a healthy dose of horror cinema and books to quench my thirst. I switched between books and movies through my teen years when I learned, all too well, that ginger haired and fair skinned people do not fare well in Florida's, almost constant, stream of burning sunlight.

I grew up in the South and among the cow pastures, orange groves, and lazy summer days of sweet tea and mosquito bites, I listened and watched. Most of the things I remembered, the people, the talks, the places all became the inspiration for parts of my book coupled with my love of the supernatural and superhero worlds I so fondly remembered from my youth.

    Growing up Kester James Finley was an avid fan of comics and cartoons. He had so many favorites growing up that it’s hard to narrow it down to only one. He finds it challenging to hold back certain details or actions within the scene because he wants to add the gruesome or race through in a blur.

      • I think a few of the hardest parts about my artistic process comes about at the start and the end of my work. I have a tendency to be a huge procrastinator when it comes to writing and can easily avoid it for menial tasks if allowed. Forcing myself to sit and write when it needs to be done is a continued effort until I can finally write "the end" on that last page.

        The second difficult part of my process tends to center on creating a blurb for the back cover info and for the retailer locations. I overwrite, horribly overwrite and trying to cut words, shrink sentences, and include as much information without giving too much away is sometimes a losing battle in frustration. It would not surprise me if more time is spent blurb writing that completing a full outline for one of my books.

      • During the process of publishing my first book, I had to navigate the entire process without any prior knowledge. I did everything wrong, it was truly a trial by fire. Since diving into the world of indie authors and self-published writers I collected any information my scrambled mind could take in and learned to be more efficient and avoid some of the same pitfalls I had encountered originally.

        Once you've gone through it the first time, you learn, you grow, you find new solutions that work for you. You become a better writer after experiencing it and after learning from others. I found tactics and strategies that I could apply from others that allowed me to better create, to produce, to continue.
