“As a writer, Kearns is a modern-day Dickens, capturing with devilish detail AIDS sufferers hooking and injecting their way through life.” – Ray Lloyd, Los Angeles Times
MAKE LOVE NOT WAR
“Brilliant and incredibly moving… Kearns’ newest artistic rant finds him donning the tortured skins of a variety of Americans whose lives have been forever changed by the horrors of the war in Iraq.” – Travis Michael Holder, Backstage West
“Kearns’ Bang Bang will leave you stunned and at a loss for words. Heartrending tales of tragedy weaved together by the common denominator of a gun will rip your heartstrings and possibly cause a flow of tears.” – Gil Kaan, Backstage West
