Keanan lived his first fourteen years on the West Coast of the United States, then moved to the South, and now lives on the cusp of the the West.

As a teenager, he visited Central America, and would like to see more of the world, but decades have passed, and still he remains.

He enjoys the give-and-take of working with fellow writers, and has been a freelance editor, a proofreader for a now-defunct science fiction press, an associate editor for a publishing house, and a magazine submissions editor.

He occasionally blogs at Adventures in Fiction (http://keananbrand.wordpress.com/), and at Penworthy Press (https://pen

First, thank you for reading the book!

Second, I'm pleased that you enjoyed it.

Third, I wanted the book completed and published this year. However, due to life circumstances, my writing has been quite slow. DRAGON'S BANE is about one-third complete, and there are copious notes regarding unwritten scenes.

The ending scene was written about fifteen years ago -- believe it or not! -- but it may change. I'm exploring a couple of potential plot twists that never occurred to me during the writing of the first book, but which may deepen the story even further.(less)

We writers pour pieces -- minutes, hours, years -- of our lives into our work, so when readers receive it well, we are encouraged to continue.

As for when Dragon's Bane will be available, I had hoped it would be completed and published by January 2016, but life matters took me away from it for a long while. (I won't bore you with the details.) However, I hope to have it ready soon.

Today's revisions included (SPOILER ALERT) a reunion scene between two characters who each thought the other was dead. :)(less)

"I won't say I went into this book with low expectations--that's not quite right. I've never read anything by this author before, but I've gotten a bit jaded by books, especially YA books, that start off strong, then tank. So, I'm wary. This book, how" Read more of this review »

Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
"This is one of those books I'd like to reflect on for a bit and write an analysis for, but probably will never get to the reflection paper - unless I were back in college and forced to! ;) It's worth reading, however, and the themes and motifs are th" Read more of this review »

“Live the life that unfolds before you- love goodness more than you fear evil.”
Jonathan Rogers, The Bark of the Bog Owl

Gloria Naylor
“The music in his laughter had a way of rounding off the missing notes in her soul.”
Gloria Naylor, Linden Hills

Stephen King
“There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that. Read sometimes for the words--the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.”
Stephen King

Erin Morgenstern
“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Alan Moore
“Artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie. But because you believed it, you found something true about yourself.”
Alan Moore, V for Vendetta
