When lightning strikes

Barry as he hikes among

ancient petroglyphs in

Albuquerque, NM, it's not

just an accident of nature.

​It's a calling.

A mentally challenged man

can't resist a gift of knowledge,

but it comes with a dark destiny.

When good and evil intertwine,

taking one means accepting

the other.

Curious about my Horror with H​eart novels?

Daeva is Coming!

Daeva has a cover! Release date will be in

mid-October, giving you plenty of time to get your copy for some Halloween reading.

To prime your Horror with Heart appetite while you wait for Daeva, try one of my other novels. 

Welcome to Keith Pyeatt's Website

Click on a cover below to find out what that one is about, read some reviews, and sample the opening chapter.

My thrillers mix physical and psychological tension with a paranormal element an​d a high concept threat, but it's the characters that linger in the minds of my readers, and that's just the way I like it. I hope you'll browse this website, sample some Horror with Heart, and meet a character or two for yourself. 


A young mother in rural

Vermont battles a vindictive

spirit who threatens more

than her family's lives. The

spirit seeks to destroy

their afterlives. 

​​Trapped for centuries inside mortal minds, a powerful daeva with a grudge against humanity has finally found a host who can release him into the world. Sharon, the host's sister, works tirelessly to stop the daeva, but by the time she fully understands his threat to mankind, she's become the key to his success. Her death will either empower the daeva or destroy him.

Coming in October...

Daeva pits supernatural

manipulation against human

devotion when an ancient

daeva stands ready to gain

access to the world. 

Daeva's path to publication has had almost as many twists and turns as its plot (details on my blog), but I'll release it in mid-October. It's been years since the last release of a fresh Horror with Heart novel, and I'm thrilled to be bringing you this one. I've loved Daeva through countless edits and three titles. I hope you'll love it too.
