He holds his father’s arm, guiding it through each of the five letters. This is the way first time novelist Kevin Enners will get his books signed. The crowd is beginning to form at Fox Tale Book Shoppe in Woodstock is filling up, well wishers and fans approaching Kevin.
“Congratulations,” says one man, grabbing Kevin’s shoulder. “That’s pretty cool!”
A boy approaches Kevin and asks, “This is your first book signing?” Kevin says, “Yeah.” “Were you excited for it?” the boy asks. “Yeah,” Kevin says again.
A published novel is just another accomplishment from this extraordinary young man. When we first met Kevin and his family three years ago, his dad Rich told us, “He doesn’t care what people thinks. If he wants to do, something he’ll do it. The word can’t is not in his vocabulary. He won’t say ‘I can’t do that because of this.'”
We first did a story about Kevin and his dad Rich when we found out they ran marathons together, with Kevin in a specially outfitted chair created by his dad. They not only ran marathons, they beat most of the people running the marathons. Rich says, “His heart rate will go 160, 170, sometimes 200 depending on how badly he wants to catch the guy in front of him.”
