There’s Magic in Every Story!

Welcome to the Official Author Homepage of Keith M. Leonard

There’s nothing that compares to the feeling of getting lost in a good story. As an author, I strive to create worlds that transport readers from their everyday life. I love creating and meeting new characters, revealing compelling plots, and exploring alternate worlds. Whether you’re in the mood for a heart-warming story about love and loss, a dark tale of the twisted kind, or something in between, my stories and upcoming novel have something for you.

Join me on my journey as I continue to explore the limitless possibilities of storytelling.

This story was the first I published that made me feel my stories could engage and entertain readers.

The story starts with Evan’s battle with mental illness. The plot unfolds when Celia, a prostitute seeking escape from her troubled past, chooses to board the Iron Empress after meeting the conductor outside her motel room. Also, after leaving home following a quarrel with his drunken father, Lane and his dog Strange, board the Wish Train when the beautiful young conductor in the local park invites him to change his life.

A world of storytelling in 100 words

A drabble is a concise work of fiction, meticulously crafted to be exactly one hundred words in length. The essence of a drabble lies in its brevity, challenging writers to convey complete stories within this confined space.
