Kyle Robert Shultz began writing in his early teens after being bitten by a radioactive book. Today, he is the Supreme Overlord of a sprawling fictional realm called the Afterverse—where fairy tales and classic stories are history, and magic and monsters are real. As a Christian, he strives to write fiction that is entertaining and wholesome, but devoid of overt “messages” or agendas. He lives in the wilds of southern Idaho, removed far enough from civilization to keep humanity safe should any of his rough drafts break through the electric fence. Aside from writing, his other passions are worship music, horseback riding, and caring for a motley assortment of animals.
