and Doctor Who
. His original novel Dragon Precinct
was published in 2004, and he's also edited several anthologies, among them the award-nominated Imaginings
and two Star Trek
anthologies. Keith is also a musician, having played percussion for the bands the Don't Quit Your Day Job Players, the Boogie Knights, and the Randy Bandits, as well as several solo acts. In what he laughingly calls his spare time, Keith follows the New York Yankees and practices kenshikai
karate. He still lives in New York City with his girlfriend and two insane cats.TERRI OSBORNE
