Mort Keilty established his credentials as a writer by working at the craft in virtually every form. Since 2000, he has ghost-written and co-authored five non-fiction books: Oh, by the way; Be Yourself; Golf & Me; I can, I will, I believe; and It’s all up in the air. Fiction is his writing preference, and The Beholder is his first published work of fiction.
He has been a counterintelligence agent in Europe, a competent country club golfer, a successful business owner, and a fair father.
Apart from writing, his primary continuing interests revolve around family—his sons and their children. He loves kids, classic movies, great writing, and Impressionist art.
A renowned Brazilian artist has distanced himself from the modern world, and an offbeat New York journalist makes it a heartfelt mission to find him. This is the recounting by the old artist of his aesthetic formation, tragic success, and self-inflicted reclusion. It is equally the story of the old man’s effect on the younger man; of late discovery by both men of friendship, love and purpose.
