Every writer is a frustrated actor who recites his lines in the hidden auditorium of his skull. -- Rod Serling

    
     

Gracie McKeever is an author from the Bronx and aside from several side trips along the way has lived and worked her entire life in the New York City area. She has been writing since the ripe old age of seven when two younger brothers were among her earliest, captive audience for various short story readings and performances.

 

An eclectic and voracious reader whose audience has grown outside of the supportive family members, she's had the great fortune of being able to incorporate two of her favorite passions and talents – reading and writing – as a book reviewer for several online e-zines both as a regular staff member and freelancer.

 

Her short stories, novellas and poetry have seen exposure in various lit and art magazines and other venues – online and in print. Of particular note, heard over the airwaves on KFJC’s morning show, Dancing In The Fast Lane With Ann Arbor (Unbedtime Stories) out of Los Altos Hills, CA (NEW LIFE INCOGNITA was the story of the month for March 2000.). She's also proud to be a member of the ("Worlds' Oldest Active Homeless Paper") Street News family and has seen numerous articles, poems and novel excerpts published within its pages as well as having had a poetry reading on Pseudo On-line Network (Street News Review).

 

In 2001 Gracie caught the erotic bug, sinking her teeth into her first erotic romance e-book for a review, and hasn't looked back since. An instant affinity for the genre spawned her first erotic romance title, BENEATH THE SURFACE, published in 2006 by Siren Publishing, Inc.
