About the Author

More About the Author

Born in Ft. Wayne, IN and raised in southeastern VA, Kevin A. Kierstead was published by the age of 10 (editorial). After graduating high school in 1990, he joined the U.S.A.F. for four years while being published as the feature and sports writer for the North Pole Independent Newspaper, securing an exclusive interview with a new gold and silver Olympic medalist, Tommy Moe. He also finished his first fiction novel during his military service.

He later studied at Christopher Newport University, majoring in Psychology and English with a writing concentration, 1996-99, 2002-04.

He believes it hasn't all been done, and that everybody has a story to tell. He believes that rules and constraints must often be scrutinized and tested. His genres vary, including science-fiction, humor, and suspense thrillers. He hopes to sign with a major publishing house but is also entirely content as long as his readers are satisfied.

If you like the Onion , then you will love this book. A shining example of fake, fake news stories. The Onion needs to hire this author.

No, I had never heard of The Onion before reading The Unbitten Onion. For those of you who have, and enjoy reading it, I recommend you consider Kevin A. Kierstead's collection of 34 "news stories!"

Ranging in content from politics to life stories, Kierstead provides readers with his unique humorous thoughts on such matters as one bored cop who arrests himself to Ozzy claiming violins are gay...

Now according to the latest World News from the Onion:
Nation Down To Last Hundred Grown-Ups
'Mature Adults Could Be Gone Within 50 Years,' Experts Say
MAY 19, 2011 | ISSUE 47*20

I want to firmly state, without doubt, I am one of those mature adults! And I will be gone within 50 years...

Of course, I didn't have to take such a bold position regarding some of Kierstead's news:

I am not prejudiced and just don't care whether violins are gay or not...

Personally, I feel the bored cop performed his job responsibilities quite admirably.

On other stories, I will offer the following comments:

No, I didn't see the late Pope at Denny's, but I do go there for great breakfasts and know that any Pope would be pleased with his breakfast if he chose Denny's over some other restaurants which I will not name...

I applaud the dead person who refused to speak at her funeral. She was probably relieved to finally be away from a husband who would demand she do so.

For the worker who was 7 minutes late and threatened with police action--better start keeping a CYA file and be prepared for what some companies do to workers these days...

Gallagher's going after his audience with a Sledge-o-matic didn't surprise me--that man is crazy!

Pearl Harbor was an accident?
