His success has brought #1 Best Sellers in several countries, including 7 overall Kindle Store Number Ones, 4 chart-topping Audiobooks on Audible and Amazon, and an incredible 110 individual category #1's across Amazon's books stores. In fact, BEFORE YOU LEAP sold more than 100,000 copies in the first month of its release, topping the US and the UK Kindle charts within days.
What's more, he has Amazon Editors' "Best of the Year" nods for KILLING HOPE (2013) and BEFORE YOU LEAP (2016), plus NO COMING BACK (2015) was a Longlist Finalist in the Crime Writers Association Dagger Award.
Following the success of NO COMING BACK and BEFORE YOU LEAP, his 2018 release CRASH has already done him proud, topping both the UK and Australia Kindle Store charts, and becoming a #1 bestseller in 11 categories.
Keith is currently writing a new crime series for Thomas & Mercer.
In 2015, 2016 and 2017, Keith was an Amazon-invited Kindle author panelist at the London Book Fair, and has also held inspirational talks at his local college. He has also appeared as a trade speaker at Authoright (2014) in London and at the Amazon Academy in Manchester (2017), sharing his experiences as a hybrid author.
In his own words, Keith says he writes about contrasts and opposites, like good versus evil and right versus wrong. His good guys are half bad and his bad guys are half good, pushed and pulled both ways along story lines that are split equally between denying truths and embracing lies. In the real world of his imagination, not everything is black and white. Sometimes it's blood red.
