Born and raised in West Texas, Kyle Word began writing when he was six years old. As an adult he held various jobs to pay the bills and to support his family, and it wasn’t until 2008 that he was able to begin writing professionally. As a ghostwriter he was productive and prolific, and over the next few years he “ghosted” seventeen books. In 2015 Kyle switched gears to write his first novel for publication under his own name.

Kyle’s goal in his fiction is to keep it as true-to-life as possible, while providing the dramatic tension that fiction demands. “I like to write about normal people in abnormal situations.” He counts among his influences the works of Cormac McCarthy, Larry McMurtry, Elmore Leonard, James Lee Burke, John D. McDonald, Dean Koontz, Donald Westlake, Lawrence Block, Stephen King and many others.

Blood Debt is his first novel.
