In addition to his novels, Kenneth has written a political essay that outlines the causes - and solutions - for the political dysfunction our
country is facing today. It is entitled, Democracy Reborn: Overcoming the Politics of Fear and Divisiveness in America. Kenneth has two children, Jill and Kyle, and lives with his wife, Joan, in suburban Chicago and on the Gulf Coast of Alabama.
