About Gerard O'Keeffe

Gerard O’Keeffe was born and brought up in the Midlands and studied Irish and American literature in London before qualifying as a teacher. He switched careers to business and marketing across the charity sector, where he worked with leading social enterprises, cultural and educational providers. He continues to work in consultancy, education and on creative projects with new talent.

Coming from a family with Irish roots, he has written and painted since his teenage years, as have his siblings. In his writing he often changes genre but is particularly interested in themes of trauma, silence and salvation. Much of his fiction has its basis in fact and he uses research and real events as the springboard for his work. He lives with his family in Cambridge where he enjoys collecting contemporary art, working with other writers and attending arts events.
