Multi-genre author Kirk Burris grew up in Joplin, Missouri before moving to Kansas City. There he fell in love with the city’s rich culture and cracked the mystery of its soul through the people, food and night life in the area. While living on the historic Country Club Plaza, he attended and graduated the University of Missouri Kansas City with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in English Writing.
In 1997, Kirk said goodbye to his beloved KC and made South Florida his permanent home. During the development of his writing career he made his living as a professional photographer and Realtor®. The travel bug bit him early in his life and he’s been everywhere from New York to Tokyo; falling in love especially with Paris. A lot of his travels find their way into his writing where readers can visit specific locales through his work.
Very often, Kirk can be found in the waters off many of the Caribbean islands, snorkeling alongside the aquatic life; a passion he found when he moved to Southeast Florida. For additional fun he enjoys visiting different theme parks across America, zipping along the exhilarating steel tracks of major roller coasters while he plots his next adventure.
At home, Kirk is a food and cooking enthusiast. He enjoys making or sampling meals with family and friends alike. That love of food works its way into Kirk’s stories on occasion, at times leaving the reader salivating for more than just the next chapter.
Kirk is a huge fan of nature and enjoys being outdoors as often as possible and taking in the beauty that God brings to our world, both below and above the surface of the waters.
