Happily married to Rachel, they live within arrow-shot of historic Sandal Castle. After winning a 2006 Fish Prize with his short story, A Villain’s Tale, he felt compelled to write historical fiction.
In 2020 The Sandal Castle Medieval Thrillers published by Sapere Books began with The Pardoner’s Crime, and The Fool’s Folly. The first novel is set during the time of King Edward 11 and was influenced by the Robin Hood tales and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It features Sir Richard Lee, Sergeant-at-Law and his assistant, Hubert of Loxley. The Fool’s Folly moves to 1485, and is set during the Wars of the Roses, during the reign of King Richard 111. In 2021 two more will appear – The Summoner’s Sins and The Franklin’s Felony. They again feature Sir Richard Lee and continue where The Pardoner’s Crime left off.
He is also at work on another historical thriller, Death of a Poet, set in Ptolemaic Egypt.
Keith also writes westerns as Clay More and is a past vice president of Western Fictioneers. He is also a member of Western Writers of America, International Thriller Writers and the Medical Journalists’ Association.
