Kevin Shelly

Absecon, New Jersey, United States


I'm a full-time New Jersey newspaper editor and a part-time magazine freelancer. My first book, Lynn Bogue Hunt: A Sporting Life, sold out its first edition and is now available again. Field & Stream magazine selected it as one of nine memorable outdoor books published in 2003. I've gotten several awards for newspaper and magazine journalism. I've written for regional and national magazines, including Field & Stream, Philadelphia, and the Wine Spectator, and also a number of newspapers. Most of my writing is about the outdoors, sporting art, food and wine, politics, corruption and business. I've had one short story published. Another short story has won an award for juvenile fiction. I'm the past-president of the Press Club of Atlantic City and a former member of its National Headliners awards committee. I've served as a screening judge for the Headliners contest.

Interests: Outdoors, including hunting, fishing, backpacking, boating and sporting art. Food and wine. Crime, corruption, history and politics.
