Who are you and where did you come from?
I am Keith Smith and I am originally from Frankfort, Kentucky. I have lived in Louisville for almost ten years. I was born with a persistent (not stubborn!) spirit and an intense desire to experience life! I often refer to myself as “an enigma” because I will not fit into one particular mold. Whether it be music (I love everything from Bluegrass to the heaviest of Heavy Metal),or hobbies (I love to write, play guitar, shoot firearms, hike, ride motorcycles, exercise, drink coffee, photography, spirituality, be a liberal, be a conservative…) I just can’t be pinned down to one description or stereotype.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?
Full time writer, speaker and traveler.

What is the biggest mistake you've made in your life?
Doubting that I could become a writer. Seriously. Until I experienced an awakening to my own potential, I felt trapped and unhappy.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
LOL,I'll get back to you on this. :-)

Best Elevator Pitch For Latest Book. 300 words or less
Black Chamber: Paradise Lost Nathaniel Quinn is a small-time writer living in Louisville, Kentucky. While researching a writing project in a local bookstore, he runs head-on into a mysterious woman clutching an old book. Minutes later the woman is dead, murdered right before his eyes, and the book she held in her hands was now in his. Reading the contents of the book would trigger a series of events that would forever change his life. Nathaniel is blindsided by a dangerous world typically inhabited by those who have been trained to deal with it. Nathaniel has no such training, and now faces a shadowy organization intent on restructuring world power. Their first target is the United States. Left with only a handful of people he can trust, can Nathaniel adapt, and more importantly, can he survive?
