Andrew Keighley


I was born in 1955 in London, lived in Rome with my parents from 1963 to 1970, then returned to England to finish school there. After a gap year back in Italy, I went to University in Dundee, Scotland, where I was awarded an MA Hons in Philosphy. After 6 years in the local fire service, in Dundee, my wife and I and two young children emigrated to Australia. I am now a High School teacher in Darwin, teaching Italian and English. I began writing fiction while at university, but then wrote little for years, until I took it up again in 2008. By 2010 I had completed 'Between Worlds', which is now available free here on Smashwords. By 2015 I had completed my second novel 'Novel Experience', also available now on Smashwords. Enjoy!

    Interesting story. Needs editing, and spelling and other errors removed. I like the style and the voice of the narrator, although it lacks any kind of detailed description of setting, which I think is important in any story. Would be good in a collection of short stories.
