Kirk von der Heydt was born in New York, but by sixteen he had attended twenty different schools all across the country. When not outside exploring new towns, he found adventures in books. Even as an adult, Kirk continues searching for new challenges. Whether it is returning to college, building things in his shop, riding his motorcycle, or creating new stories — Kirk is a true renaissance man.
Throughout it all, his stories have been his constant companion. After honing his craft with the DFW Writers Workshop and being the 2014 DFW Writers Conference director, Kirk is ready to share his adventures.
Kirk lives in Hurst, Texas with his supportive and native-Texan wife. He is also the proud father of two beautiful adult daughters who are the inspiration for his novels.
