Christopher Keelty
17 January 1979
I grew up in Upstate New York and the Philadelphia suburbs, and now live in Philadelphia. I raise money for the ACLU and I write, with a goal of someday making a living as a full-time novelist. I am a creative person who tends to get caught up in my imagination, but I am proud to have a vivid imagination and I try to encourage it in other people. It has sometimes gotten me in trouble, though.

I've been fortunate to never lose my sense of wonder at the world, and I find beauty and humor in simple things. I consider myself a pretty happy person, but I confuse people sometimes because I can find beauty even in sadness and in sorrow.

Recently I've learned a lot about myself and about other people, and I'm re-learning a lot of things that I used to know and apparently forgot at some point. Only a few people really get close to me, but those people are the greatest treasure I've ever known. I am privileged to share my life with the greatest people in the world, and I don't tell them nearly often enough how special they are.

My biggest goal for the next decade is to write the five novels that are currently in my head, and to work my ass off trying to get them published. I don't want fame and fortune; I just want to be able to make my own decisions about what to do with each day.
