Keith Hartman


Keith Hartman grew up in Huntsville Alabama, where he was a weird little boy who didn’t fit in. He went to Princeton University, where he was supposed to study economics and instead spent all his time on theater courses. He then started a PhD in Finance at Duke, before realizing that he just couldn’t spend the rest of his life teaching MBA’s how to screw each other. So he ran away to be a writer.

His parents were thrilled.

He sold his first short story to a tiny magazine that went out of business, and his first book to Rutgers University, which did not.

He moved to Los Angeles a few years ago to direct low budget movies. It turns out that everyone in Hollywood is stark raving mad.

And Keith fits right in.

His first novel, THE GUMSHOE, THE WITCH, AND THE VIRTUAL CORPSE won two Spectrum Awards and was picked as one of the "Eight Best Mysteries of the Year" by THE DROOD REVIEW.

He just shot his first feature film, YOU SHOULD MEET MY SON! It's a fish-out-of water comedy about a conservative Southern mom who discovers that her only son is gay. Determined that he won't go through life alone and miserable, she sets out to find him the perfect husband.
