Hi and welcome to my website.  My name is Rob Keeley and I’m a writer of short stories, novels and drama, especially for children and a family audience.  My collection of short stories for children, The Alien in the Garage and Other Stories is published by Troubador Publishing, with a second collection, The (Fairly) Magic Show and Other Stories, now available.  A third collection, The Dinner Club and Other Stories was published in September 2013. My first novel for children, Childish Spirits, was published in July 2014 and a sequel, The Spirit of London, was published in September 2015. The third novel in the Spirits series, The Sword of the Spirit, was published in July 2016.  My books for children have been longlisted for the inaugural Bath Children's Novel Award and the International Rubery Book Award, Highly Commended for the Independent Author Book Award and nominated for the People's Book Prize.

 

My other credits include writing for the radio series Chain Gang and Newsjack for BBC Radio 7 (now BBC Radio 4 Extra) and writing fiction and non-fiction for various magazines. I am currently looking to move into film and TV and have recently completed courses in Filmmaking and Screenwriting. In 2016 I have been a judge for the IGGY and Litro Young Writers' Prize.

 

Here on my site you can learn more about me and my writing, read the latest news and reviews, and find out where you can find my work online. There are also lots of extras for those who like my stories. Enjoy!
