Cliff Keller

Biography

Cliff Keller was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After multiple migrations between Florida and Wisconsin, Cliff attended Florida State University to pursue a degree in Engineering Science, paying his way by working as an engineering coop student for NASA at Cape Canaveral. Somehow aware of Cliff's progress, President Richard Nixon designed to send Cliff to the war in Vietnam by ending the educational draft deferment. By graduating, then receiving an occupational deferment while working for then defense contractor, Texas Instruments, in Dallas, Cliff avoided conscription and bested the president, who soon afterward became distracted by the Watergate scandal and lost interest in Cliff’s status.
After eight years in Dallas (and earning a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering from Southern Methodist University), Cliff spent the next 18 years in Florida in the construction business before selling the company to devote more time to writing.
Cliff and his wife, Marcia, now live in Jerusalem, Israel, having made Aliyah in 2011, where they are slowly improving at speaking Hebrew and loving their time in the land.
