Shawn McKee can be spotted around town with his notepad and tape recorder, impersonating various journalists. He earned his MFA in creative writing at the University of Central Florida. Written works can be found on his page, including his insightful blogs soon to be written entirely in Old English. His interests include books, movies, music, animation, and retro-video games to name a few. He hasn’t read Moby Dick but did listen to the entire book CD while driving. He is the author of the short story collection Super Sassy Headlines for the New Millennium and is fast at work on his first novel, The Time Dancer, a time-traveling memoir–at least that’s the idea.
Shawn has been working with his lifelong friend Jason on a feature-length documentary about the genetic disease Cystic Fibrosis, which affects roughly 30,000 people in the US alone. This work compiles decades of footage involving Jason’s family and the struggles of his three siblings, in particular, affected by the disease. It is a story of hope, perseverance, and unconditional love against relentless odds. After several years in the making, Our Family & CF has reached the post-production stage and will soon be released once finances are secured. You can donate to this effort here.
