Author Kevin Dilmore joins Tantrum in February

Next up: Tantrum boldly goes where no improvisers have gone before.

Star Trek author Kevin Dilmore will spin the stories as guest monologist for Tantrum's shows on Second Friday at the Westport Coffeehouse and the return of our Making A Scene series at the Plaza Library. 

His literary career began in 2001 with the publication of Interphase, a Star Trek novel written with his friend and writing partner Dayton Ward. The duo has written numerous novels and short stories based on television shows since, including their latest, Wet Work, based on “The 4400,” published in November 2008. As a freelance writer, Kevin has contributed to publications including Star Trek Communicator, Amazing Stories and Hallmark magazines.

For nearly 15 years, Kevin Dilmore worked as a newspaper reporter and editor for the Miami County Republic newspaper in Paola, Kan. His photographs, news stories and features won numerous honors from state and national journalism organizations, and he is a two-time winner of the Kansas Press Association’s highest award for in-depth reporting. Since 2005, Kevin has worked for Hallmark Cards; his first book for Hallmark will be published in 2009.

A graduate of the University of Kansas, Kevin counts himself as very thankful for the person who, at age 9, tipped him off to the fact that “Star Trek” was a live-action television show before it was a Saturday-morning cartoon.
