We start the episode by delving into Keith’s journey to becoming an author, which encompasses his foray into comedy and theatre in his youth. Keith also believes that his analytical nature, combined with his interest in comedy attracts him to writing novels, where he can give perspective to important societal issues and yet balance these serious subjects with a sprinkle of humor.
We also discussed Keith’s experiences and the challenges involved in researching several different eras in time, and combining myth into different settings.
And of course, we were very excited to hear all about his upcoming book which has a very interesting premise; a witty reimagining of Greek Myth set in Olympus and the Italian Renaissance.
We moved on to discussing Keith’s experience of being published traditionally, and transferring his first novel from Curiosity Quills to Ellysian Press.
Finally, Keith talked a number of resources that he has found helpful. Links for conferences, workshops and books he recommended can be found below:
