Ed McKeown

About Me:
I am a writer and editor specializing in science fiction and fantasy, with occasional forays into literary and non-fiction. I “escaped” from NY, but my old hometown supplies much of the background to the humorous “Lair of the Lesbian Love Goddess” shorts, as my new hometown in Charlotte, N.C., does for my “Templar” fantasy series. I enjoy a wide variety of interests from ballroom dance to the martial arts and have the good fortune to be married to the talented artist, Schelly Keefer. I have also edited the Sha’Daa anthologies of wry tales of the apocalypse. My first novel “Was Once a Hero” has been released e-version and print by Hellfire Publishing.

Over eighty  publications in various media of stories and articles.
