Keith Pyeatt writes a style of paranormal thrillers that he calls “Horror with Heart.” He starts by creating characters that feel real and whose company he’ll enjoy for the long haul of writing and editing a novel. He drops in a paranormal threat that those characters can’t ignore and then tops it off with a strong psychological twist (or two).

Keith began writing while living in the rural woods of Vermont. He moved to Albuquerque and was very active in SouthWest Writers, serving on the board for four years, three of those years as an officer. He now lives in Tucson, Arizona. He has four published novels. The latest, Daeva, was released in October 2015.

When good and evil intertwine, taking one means accepting the other…

A new world beckons inside the mind of mentally challenged Wesley Henson, a world that offers him a gift he can’t resist: knowledge.

The knowledge builds Wesley’s intellect and gives him the ability to heal two sick friends, but the instincts thrust him into an evil contest he doesn’t understand, against opponents who have trained their entire lives to compete. Wesley must fight for his life in two worlds while piecing together his mind and coming to terms with his heritage. The more he understands, the harder it becomes to tell good from evil and the more difficult his choices become.
