After several years devoted to poetry, followed by a few minor achievements as a professional song lyricist, Keith Steinbaum eventually decided to write a novel, culminating in the completion of The Poe Consequence, a supernatural thriller/human drama that received Books-and-Authors.net’s Supernatural Thriller of the Year, Kirkus Reviews’ listing as a top Indy book of the year, and a Finalist placing in 2017’s International Book Excellence Awards competition.

His forthcoming second novel, published by Black Opal Books, is entitled, You Say Goodbye. It’s a whodunit murder mystery featuring The Beatles, a one-hit wonder ex-rock star, and a little girl with cancer who’s a big fan of the LA Lakers. The child’s character was inspired by the life, and unfortunate death, of Alexandra Scott from the Alex’s Lemonade foundation.

Although Steinbaum pays the bills through a long career in the landscape industry, in his heart he’s always considered himself a creative writer first and foremost. As he’s often replied when asked about his license plate that reads, Do Write, “I make my living through landscape, but I make my loving through writing.”
