(A little get to know me and you sesh…)
This is me /\.
My name is Eric Keegan.
I’m an indie author (recently of two years, before that just a casual writer).
I read more books than I eat things at this point…not sure if that’s a good thing, but I really enjoy it.
I’ve released 3 books since 2018 and 2 Kindle collections. I’m working on a new book release for early April and a few more leading into the summer. My most recent release is Lines at the Amusement Rides. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m ready to put out a lot of works because I write strictly on my smartphone. The only computer work I do is when I sit down to edit. Writing on the phone helps me to nab and grab almost every single idea that, at least to me, is worth documenting.
I’ve lived in New Jersey most of my life, and also out in the Pacific Northwest.
James Bond is my favorite book and film series (can’t wait for Daniel Craig’s last outing!) and I’ve been obsessed ever since my Uncle got me License to Kill on VHS one year for Christmas.
I don’t have a one single favorite book of all time, but I have a ton of favorites:
I Work at a Public Library
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Rum Diary
The Bridges of Madison County
What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Howl’s Moving Castle
South of the Border, West of the Sun
A Streetcar Named Desire
84, Charing Cross Road
Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores
The Tao of Bill Murray
…and too many more to mention.
Nature means everything to me, I am such a huge gaping fanboy of it.
Music affects me the same way. Without it, I don’t think I’d ever have wanted to become a writer. Finding inspiration is what leads a person to be inspired, so don’t ever let yourself get down if you’re having a difficult time harvesting some. It’s everywhere.
That’s all for now, but I’d love to hear some more about all of you!
1) Are you a writer? Any works out there I can check out?
2) Favorite books, films, and musical artists?
3) What are some things that move you?
And the list goes on…Happy Saturday my friends!
