In writing his first novel, Kevin fell in love with writing and storytelling. His second novel, White Skies Black Mingo, is Historical Fiction inspired by the love of his actual great-great-grandparents.

His great-great-grandfather, Charles Flagg, Sr., was a veteran of the Civil War and served in the 63rd Infantry Regiment of Pennsylvania in the Union Army. Although the story is fictional, their love was the inspiration for the tale set in the darkest period of American history. The Civil War.
