SNES Omnibus Writer Spotlight #42 - Kieren Hawken

Kieren Hawken does what I know to be a difficult thing: freelance writing. He writes with knowledge, authority, and passion for various outlets, including Retro Gamer magazine, one of the best video game magazines ever published. Lucky for me, he also volunteered his time to write some really good stories for The SNES Omnibusproject. Kieren, a family man and all-around good egg, operates out of the U.K., giving a dash of international flavor to the books. Thanks, Kieren! Jolly good show, mate!

Here’s Kieren’s bio as it appears in the SNES Omnibus Volumes 1 and 2.

Kieren Hawken has been writing about video games for more than 10 years for many different publications, but he’s best known for his work on the award-winning Retro Gamer magazine. Other published works include numerous digital books, most notably his popular A-Z series. Kieren was a contributing author on Let’s Go Dizzy: The Story of the Oliver Twins and The Story of the Commodore Amiga in Pixels. In addition, he appeared on the prime time UK technology show Sky News Swipe, as well numerous podcasts as both a guest and co-host. His own YouTube channel, The Laird’s Lair, features a wide range of videos focused on the world of retro gaming.
