Jeff Keene II


Jeff Keene II holds degrees in biology, chemistry, and linguistics. His writing path began when his high school teacher assigned him the task of creating an original screenplay. Twenty-five years later, that screenplay was published as a short story in a Long Island newsletter. But the writing bug really began when developing a textual criticism about a New Testament story in a master’s level seminary course in 2012. Since then, Jeff has had the undying urge to write about unnamed characters in the Bible who’ve met Jesus.

He has served as a volunteer firefighter where he suffered a line-of-duty injury resulting in the loss of his right foot below- the-knee, worked on a NOAA research vessel for 17-days at sea, and even applied to the NASA Teacher in Space program. He currently serves as a public school teacher.
Jeff lives with his wife, Andria, in Central Florida. They have two adult children.

Biblical Fiction

“My name is Legion, for we are many.”

Yamin ran until he found the nook in the wall where he spent his first night in the city. He plopped onto the ground, curled up, and wept.
“What is wrong with me? Am I going mad?”
The voice answered him. “Yes, you are.”
“Get out of my head. Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!”
“I’ll never shut up.”
The voice caressed his mind like a grotesque lover’s kiss.

“I am part of you – Yamin.”
