About David James Keaton

David James Keaton’s work has appeared in over 50 publications, most recently including Grift, The Chicago Quarterly Review, Noir At The Bar, PANK, Needle, and Thuglit. He won a Best Short Story on the Web, a Spinetingler Award for a roulette scam in Crime Factory, and his coach-killing contribution to Plots With Guns #10 was named a Notable Story of 2010 by storySouth’s Million Writer’s Award. He was also nominated for a 2012 Pushcart Prize. David received his MFA from the University of Pittsburgh and was the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Flywheel Magazine, (sadly, featuring more flies than wheels these days). He’s tinkering with several screenplays, including a prison movie, a thriller, and a western, occasionally adapting them into novels. He realizes this method is probably backwards. His first collection of fiction, Fish Bites Cop! Stories To Bash Authorities, was a finalist for the Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award and named the 2013 Short Story Collection of the Year by This Is Horror. His first novel, The Last Projector (Broken River Books), was released in Halloween of 2014. He teaches composition and fiction writing at Santa Clara University.
