I worked alongside the military and civilian intelligence community for well over 20 years - my unique and detailed insight into the dark side of the British establishment allows me to weave this context into my stories.
This genre is what I know - I am very much the real deal.
Praise from Derek's readers:
"This writer is gifted, not talented, but gifted...I experienced emotions I have never experienced before while reading a book - my body tensed, my heart raced and my pulse soared time and again."
"Derek Keyte has an absolute talent to which I am now a fan."
"Knowledgeable, concise, and assured writing from a debut novelist....we may well be looking at a future master."
"Keyte has crafted a modern day masterpiece in the style of Gerald Seymour with a touch of early Clancy thrown in."
Whilst all of my work is fiction and is based on my imagination and open source research, my background allows me to write the genre with a sense of pure authenticity, whilst at the same time ensuring that I meet my obligations under the Official Secrets Act.
