A MESSAGE FROM DON KEITH:
I have been fortunate to have published and received positive reviews for writing books dealing with subjects in which I am naturally interested. Thankfully, enough readers share these interests that publishers keep allowing me to do so. My works, both fiction and non-fiction, are on a wide variety of topics including World War II and nuclear submarines, military history, college football, NASCAR, broadcasting, and more. Click on a book cover above or visit the WORKS page to see more information. See my latest books in various genre below.
I am also very active in the hobby of amateur radio (my call sign is N4KC and my ham radio website is here). I enjoy writing articles for those interested in and newcomers to this wonderful past-time. After many requests, I have put them--including some brand new material--into book form. I am evangelical about the hobby, too, and have designed premium items to help others spread the word about this dynamic pastime.
I maintain a blog on the subject of rapid technological change as it affects media, society and amateur radio. It can be found HERE. I have also just started a major project to encourage people to join me in capturing and publishing eyewitness history. The UNTOLD MILLIONS Oral History Project is an attempt to gather and make available descriptions, journals, and recollections of those who have lived important historical events. I have also published an e-book on the subject that may be downloaded HERE. Learn more about this vital work HERE.

"This book made me want to go hug my children and review my life to see if I have done right by my fellow man. We are but a generation from the protests that brought upon the Civil Rights movement, and Shelley Stewart was at the center of it. I could not stop reading and hoping there was an upside to this man’s story, only to realize he was the upside." -- Hippocampus Magazine
"Shelley Stewart's story is astonishing, and Don Keith has told it with grace and honesty." -- Robert Inman, author of The Governor's Lady
"Shelley Stewart's biography is nothing short of amazing. It will surprise you, entertain you, break your heart and lift you up." -- Susan Swagler, Birmingham Magazine
Mattie C.'s Boy is the remarkable, true story of a man who overcame a childhood of abuse, racism and heartbreak to become a highly-honored broadcaster, human rights spokesperson, and successful businessman.

"I can't stop thinking about some of the ideas and the characters. A book that is this much fun to read and makes you think like this- it's a winner."
--Reader review on Amazon.com

Thank you to all for your continued support and comments. Writing is necessarily a lonely undertaking and it is always good to hear that something I have committed to paper affects someone on some level I am always glad to hear from you.
