Ed Kardos enjoys reading and studying Joseph Campbell’s work, an author who focused on the human experience. Kardos believes in the beauty of nature and all that surrounds us all. His trust in the interconnections of our world through spirituality and friendship helped shape his book Zen Master Next Door. The unique short stories in his book serve as modern-day “Zen parables.” These stories showcase his strong desire to be mindful of others and engage those around him. Ed has written four other books and has begun authoring a series of chronicles.
Kardos also loves fantasy in books, movies, and art, which played a significant role in his life. He writes for young readers and those young at heart. He and his loving wife, Kristen, live in Richmond, Virginia, with their four children.
