Rhys Keller is an American author and Professional Engineer with a penchant for writing children’s books and science fiction / fantasy novels. His background in writing goes way, way back to the days of Where the Sidewalk Ends, Sea of Trolls, and House of the Red Scorpion. In these books, and many like these, Rhys developed a passion for communicating through the written word.
After more than a decade managing and contributing to various blogs and businesses, Rhys delved into the world of book publishing. He is actively seeking traditional literary agent representation for completed picture book manuscripts while continuing to build his cross-genre portfolio.
Aside from his own publishing journey, Rhys hopes to share his experiences with other authors interested in honing their craft. From time to time, he blogs about lessons learned, tips, and tricks to improve communicating through the written word and would love to build connections in the industry. Rhys also interviews others in the publishing space to bring insight into the murky waters of aspiration.
Rather than be a starving author, Rhys brings home delicious bacon as a Professional Engineer. You can expect him to be awake at 3:00am reading, writing, or exercising. On Sunday, you’ll find him at his local church where he serves as a Deacon and sometimes teaches small group classes. When his family permits him to sleep, he dreams of filling homes, schools, and libraries with family-friendly books.
