The Writers’ Block

About the Writers’ Block

Louisiana’s Steampunk Exposition is fortunate to have a number of Genre author’s grace the first year of our event. Ranging from children’s literature to adult romance novels, our block of writers or “Writers’ Block” has something from everyone. Our writing guests will be available at their tables to meet their fans, sign books, and answer questions. The Writers’ Block is the first block of the Exposition as you enter the main event space. Stop by to free your imagination!

Kelly Grayson

Kelly Grayson is a highly-regarded crical care paramedic with a national reputation, award-winning EMS columnist, author and popular public speaker.

When he isn’t prowling the seamy underbelly of the city looking for li’le old ladies who have fallen and can’t get up, Kelly fancies himself a Science Fiction novelist who brings warmth, humanity, occasional profanity and an abiding sense of whimsy to his writing.

One day he hopes to be a retired paramedic and a full-me novelist who spends his hard-earned royalty checks on brown liquor, guns, and a woman who tolerates his shenanigans with a minimum of eye-rolling.
