Kenneth C. Flint

Kenneth C. Flint, who has also written under the pseudonym Casey Flynn, is an American fantasy novelist. A resident of Omaha, Nebraska, Flint taught literature and writing at the University of Nebraska at Omaha for six years before becoming English department head for Plattsmouth High School. In 1986 he quit teaching to become a full-time novelist. A majority of his works are either based on Irish myths and legends, or else are original stories involving concepts, and sometimes characters, from Irish mythology. His earliest and best known works center around three of the most important characters of Irish
Lugh, Cúchulainn, and Finn MacCumhal. More recently he has written a pair of "Star Wars" short stories, and a historical fiction novel, "On Earth's Remotest Bounds: Year One: Blood and Water", the first of a planned series.
