Thane Keller


​​Thane is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute with a degree in psychology and a minor in English. Following college, Thane married his high school sweetheart Sarah, and started his career as a cavalryman in the United States Army. After over eleven years of service, he has deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan where he was personally engaged in ground combat. His service has thus far earned him two Bronze Stars and numerous other awards and decorations.

Relying on his psychology background, military experience, and Christian faith, Thane writes novels that seek to explore human nature under dire circumstances, the reality of pain and suffering, and the resilience of individuals to accomplish super human feats. Thane's hopes are that as readers experience his character's journey through the gift of reading, readers will be greater equipped to endure the inevitable ups and downs in life itself and dream to accomplish greater things.

In addition to his wife Sarah, Thane is blessed to have three wonderful boys that do all they can to keep him from pursuing his love of writing.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Fear inspires me. I have to beat our two year old out of bed before he finds something in the pantry to make for breakfast :)

Waking up and starting my day early has always been easy for me (to my wife's chagrin) and being able to see my three little boys with all their energy first thing in the morning is a real pleasure.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a full time Army Officer, husband, and father. I typically get up at 5 and exercise for an hour and half before starting my day. When I get home, it's play time until 8pm and then bedtime for the boys and alone time with my wife. Between all the bustle, I can usually sneak an hour or two of writing on on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
