Born in the United Kingdom but happily dwelling “across the pond”, Kevin E. Buckley has traveled far and wide seeking new experiences and delving into interesting cultures. His travels ultimately led him to the pristine wilderness of the Great White North, the perfect setting for him to freely express his creativity. When not putting pencil to paper, Kevin is a business owner, musician and songwriter, with songs released on the Public Records label. A former member of the rock/reggae band MI5, he has played lead guitar with various rock and blues acts in both the Old World and the New. Choreographically challenged from an early age, Kevin has fought hard to overcome a seriously debilitating dancing disability. On the plus side, he is now generally recognized as a fullyfledged, genetically-certified non-reptoid writer.
When partners in crime-reduction Jerry “Leafy” Green and Bill “Beefy” Goodness — two of the LAPD’s most skilled homicide detectives — investigate the bizarre killing of a fashion model at the Hollywood Sign it soon becomes clear that this murder is part of a much larger conspiracy that threatens not only the people of America, but the entire population of the planet. As the case progresses, they recruit the help of a Jesuslookalike ufologist, a streetwise Goth graffiti artist, a world-renowned geneticist, a super-nerd cyber investigator, and a fire-and- brimstone inner city reverend. The detectives and their motley crew of improvised freedom fighters must work quickly to take down the tainted global elite and avert the merciless enslavement of humanity that looms large on the horizon
A few schools and book clubs have inquired about a study guide for The Secret Sign of the Lizard People and I'm happy to announce that a guide is now available under the "MEDIA" tab on this website. Book clubs and teachers are welcome to use the guide questions as they are written or adapt and develop them for their own specific needs.
"Readers will find laugh-out-loud scenes, as when FBI agent, Justin Case, uses the word “metastasizing” in conversation, to Leafy’s amusement. “Metastasizing? Are you freaking serious?” Leafy says. “All right, all right, I admit it,” Case responds. “Jack Topper used it the other night on C&N and . . . I’ve been waiting for a chance to use [it] in everyday conversation.” In all, readers of [this inaugural novel] should agree that it’s a promising start."

"... Fanciful, brisk, and irreverent, The Secret Sign of the Lizard People is an eccentric satirical novel that thumbs its nose at the current world order."
