Keith Pyeatt became a mechanical engineer in 1980 and set
off on a technical career path that took him from the Texas
Panhandle to Massachusetts and then to Vermont. In the mid-nineties,
he designed and built a simple log cabin on the side of a mountain
in the rural woods of northeastern Vermont. That's when his career
After two years in his isolated cabin, Keith began writing horror novels in his spare time. After ten years in his cabin, he left his engineering career behind and moved to Albuquerque to focus on writing and freelance editing. Now Keith lives in Tucson, Arizona, and he looks forward to seeing what new angles and edges this change of environment will bring to his next novels.
Keith writes his own style of paranormal thrillers he calls Horror with Heart. His method is to create characters that are just as real as he can make them, drop in a paranormal threat they can't ignore, and add a psychological twist. Keith forces his characters to look inside themselves to find their very best before they can save the day, putting the heart in Horror with Heart.
