ABOUT Mike Kilroy

Mike Kilroy
I have been a journalist by night (I am a sportswriter) for two decades and a novelist by day (and late, late night) for a year. I have written three fiction novels: Nine Meals, The 17 and my latest foray into fiction, Solo.



Solo is a particular kind of monster.
A monster who has forgotten he is a monster.
Solo doesn't recall much of his life in the Before. He can't remember who he is or what he was--even his real name. All he knows is the After: a desolate world where all but one percent of the population has vanished.
Like a fart in the wind.
His only friend in this deserted wasteland is Tom, a gruff survivalist who spits out folksy one-liners. They search the city for the one person Solo can remember from his past: a woman by the name of Eye Lyds.
Their journey is fraught with danger and Solo soon discovers reality is very much in the eye of the beholder.
Life is like licking honey off a thorn.
From the best-selling, award-winning author of Nine Meals and The 17 comes a story of survival, of an unrelenting war against mental illness, of unconditional love, of terrible tragedy and of wonderful personal triumphs.
Promises made in storms are forgotten in calms.
Will Solo remember what particular kind of monster he is in time to save Eye Lyds?
