I've been writing as my vocation for only about three years. i toyed with the idea many years ago and after being rejected, desevredly so, I gave up and went about working for living. Now that I've experienced a good deal more of life I feel I'm bring that experience and imagination to my books.
I write about this things I know and then add the elements of the stories. Having been an avid reader for thirty plus years, I've learned a greta deal about how stories are told and I use most of what I've learned in my own writing.
My style is a bit different from most of successful contemporaries, I think that's because I write more like we would be have a conversation rather than as formal literiture. I like to keep the story fast paced with action sprinkled in to keep my attention. So I know it'll keep yours.
My first two books have recieved great review:
Praise for The Fishing Trip—A Ghost Story!
“I had the pleasure of editing The Fishing Trip—A Ghost Story. Even though my opinion might be slightly biased, I found Key’s colorful characters and gruesome ghouls to be likeable and entertaining; his storyline, enthralling and filled with suspense. A truly chilling (fish) tale that will satisfy the ghost lover in all.”
Kaye Lynn Booth, Writing To Be Read
REPRISAL! THE EAGLE RISES! BY CHRIS KEYS
Vigilantes or Patriots?
I’ve often thought, out of frustration with a liberal administration, what kind of response unlimited wealth could achieve to do the job of protecting America when the Ideological Administration refused to do so. Now we know. ‘Reprisal’ has answered that question – in spades. I give it 5 stars!!!!!A MUST READ—FIVE STARS! Frank Fiore the author of CyberKill!
Reprisal! The Eagle Rises is action packed and filled with intrigue. Definitely a must read for action adventure fans. Kaye Lynn Booth, Writing To Be Read
