Keith R. Rees

Biography

I am an author of fiction, historical fiction and poetry. I have written five novels including one that would be considered a novella. I also have two collections of poetry. I have just released a historical fiction romance novel set on the island of Maui.

I started out writing poetry over 20 years ago, but started centering more on novels for over 8 years now. I love to travel when I can and in writing I try to create endearing characters that ordinary, everyday people can relate to. I love to tell stories and put my imagination to work.

Writing is a wonderful pastime and I am happy to share these stories with as many people as possible. Happy reading! :)
