Okay, let’s make this easy – if you’re vaguely interested in who I am, here are some fairly uninteresting facts about me…
- I’m currently working on my seventh novel which is due for release in spring 2019. If you’d like an email when it’s ready, you can sign-up for an email notification on this page.
- When I was born in the ’70s, the name ‘Keith’ had some kudos. I was actually named after Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones – the coolest man on the planet at the time. Then there was the slightly unhinged drummer of The Who, Keith Moon. My name is now anything but cool.
- I was born on Friday 13th, and I’m left-handed. In the middle ages I’d have probably been a wizard or a soothsayer rather than a writer. Saying that, it’s more likely I’d have been burnt at the stake.
- The ‘A’ in my name is a necessary evil – I’m not being pretentious. There are several published authors called Keith Pearson, and a semi-famous bluegrass banjo player. If you book me (rather than my musical namesake) to play at your folk club, you’ll be disappointed. That ‘A’ is important.
