Kevin Cowdall was born in Liverpool, England; where he still lives and works.
Kevin developed an interest in writing at an early age and gradually started to get things into print - his first published poem actually appeared, appropriately, in the influential UK journal, 'First Time'. Three small press collections followed; 'The Reflective Image', 'Monochrome Leaves' and 'A Walk in the Park'. In all, over 200 poems have been published in magazines, journals and anthologies in the UK, Australia, India, Canada, the USA and across Europe, and broadcast on local and regional BBC Radio. The Writers' Rostrum produced 'The Best of Kevin Cowdall', which was awarded a best collection prize at the inaugural National Small Press and Poetry Convention. 'Assorted Bric-a-brac', featuring a selection from the previously published collections, along with a number of newer poems, is available in paperback and as an e-book on Amazon.
Kevin also started writing short stories and a number have been published in UK magazines and anthologies and he has edited nine of these in to a collection, 'The Ophelia Garden'. He has also written his first play, 'Sometimes', and completed a full-length novel about the life of an Edwardian Liverpool artist, 'Cosgrove's Sketches', and a children's story (with adult appeal), 'The Dinsdale Fox'. His novella, 'Paper Gods and Iron Men' (with the short story, 'Flanagan's Mule') is also available in paperback and as an-e-book on Amazon, and has received excellent reviews.
In his spare time, Kevin is an avid reader, enjoys live and recorded music (predominantly classical, opera, jazz and blues), theatre- and cinema-going, dining out and travelling widely.
