Kevin Kurtz began storytelling at an early age as he acted out the characters he had seen on television. One day he could be Batman, the next day a pirate, cowboy, or astronaut. His adventures were as big as his imagination.
He would draw from these childhood memories to create stories that entertain children. He has had the privilege of watching a child's eyes widen with excitement as they have listened to his storytelling.
A curious thing has happened in the development of this story, adults love the "Mortimer" characters too, and are caught up in Mortimer's thrilling adventures.
Kevin continues to stretch his ability to paint with words, dabbling in a variety of genres and styles. But he always comes back to the story close to his heart, "Mortimer".
Kevin is inspired and encouraged by his family; wife, Wendy, and two sons, Michael and Andrew.
