His contribution to Plots With Guns #10 was named a Notable Story of 2010 by storySouth's Million Writer's Award. He received his MFA from the University of Pittsburgh and is also the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Flywheel Magazine, now featuring more wheels than flies. He's scribbled enough pages for five books and is constantly rewriting three screenplays; a prison movie, a thriller, and a western, simultaneously adapting them into novels. He realizes this method is probably backwards. He has just completed his first novel for which he is seeking representation and can be contacted at davidjameskeaton[at]gmail[dot]com.
