Kevin D. Hendricks lives in West St. Paul, Minn., with his wife, two kids and two dogs. He runs his own freelance writing and editing company, Monkey Outta Nowhere. He’s been blogging since 1998, tweeting since 2007 and generally enjoys being a web geek.

After growing up in the distant suburbs of Detroit he moved to St. Paul, Minn., to attend Bethel College (now University). He graduated in 2000 with a degree in writing and a minor in art, got married and started a job with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association—all in the span of two weeks. In 2004 he began his journey of self-employment, which nicely complements his introverted nature.

His clients have included major organizations like the National Park Service, nonprofits like the church communications blog Church Marketing Sucks, and tiny local joints like Dora’s Mexican Restaurant.

In 2019, Kevin launched the West St. Paul Reader with the help of a Kickstarter campaign and community supporters. This effort takes the local writing he’s done on his personal blog for years and turns it into a broader and more focused community project.

In addition to being an avid blogger and writing for a number of magazines and web sites, Kevin wrote his first book in first grade, the cleverly titled Mike, The Cat. He’s participated in National Novel Writing Month multiple times and in 2010 put together the Twitter book Addition by Adoption: Kids, Causes and 140-Characters. In 2013 he shared his love of reading with 137 Books in One Year: How to Fall in Love With Reading.
