I live in western North Carolina, just a little north east of Asheville. I love being here in the mountains and enjoy some amazing mountain views from my front porch.

When I’m not writing, I’m reading, gaming, working in my gardens, or doing crafts. I play Celtic traditional music – a bodhran, Irish flute, and fiddle keep my toes tapping.

Back in 2013 I retired from being an Intelligence Analyst for the U.S. Government. I hold two Master’s degrees and really loved my career – but a health diagnosis had me changing my plans. Now, I write books that use my experiences for story fodder.

Being here in the mountains wouldn’t be the same without a houseful of furballs – two dogs and two cats – that are my snuggle buddies, writing supervisors and reminders to get up and away from the keyboard.

I love hearing from my readers, so feel free to drop me a line at author@tkeldridge.com!
