My name is Brian Keene. I am a Father, Writer, Lover, and Fighter (in that order). I write books, comic books, short stories, and the occasional bit of journalism for money.
My latest books are BLOOD ON THE PAGE (available in paperback, Kindle, Nook, and Kobo), THE RISING (in paperback and Kindle), and CITY OF THE DEAD (available in paperback). Those latter two are older novels, re-issued uncut and containing material not included in the previous editions. For a complete list of all the books I’ve written, and links to purchase them, CLICK HERE.
My latest comic book is THE LAST ZOMBIE: BEFORE THE AFTER, which is a trade paperback graphic novel and volume 4 in THE LAST ZOMBIE series, which examines Earth after the zombie apocalypse is over. There is one more volume forthcoming, and then I’ll probably be done with comics for a while. I was supposed to write two ongoing series for DC Comics next year (with the possibility of a third), but when it became clear to me that I would not be a good fit with the current editorial team, I walked away before the series were announced. (Since I was paid a kill fee, professional decorum requires that I say no more, so please don’t ask). For a complete list of all the comics I’ve written, and links to purchase them, CLICK HERE.
Several film adaptations of my work are in queue. GHOUL is available now on DVD. FAST ZOMBIES SUCK has an expected DVD release of January 2014. THE CAGE and DARK HOLLOW are slated to begin production soon. And CASTAWAYS, GHOST WALK, DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, HALVES, THE GHOSTS OF MONSTERS, and THE SIQQUSIM WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS are all in development.

The easiest way to contact me is via Twitter or the comments section of this website. I also maintain a public Facebook page (in addition to a private page — please don’t confuse the two). I am also active on Tumblr, Instagram, YouTube, and Spotify, and to a lesser extent on Pinterest, Goodreads, and Google+. I also have a message board, which I am admittedly woefully behind on, and intend to get caught up on in coming weeks. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, but I am absolutely TERRIBLE at responding to email, so forewarned. Mail can be sent to Brian Keene PO Box 281, Craley PA 17312. I cannot stress enough that out of all these, I prefer Twitter.
