My ALLi author guest this episode is Keith A Pearson, who grew up in economically disadvantaged conditions in England, left school when he was sixteen, and developed a work ethic as he advanced in his career. That work ethic came in handy when he transitioned to full-time author. It was a very unlikely new career choice for Keith, who did not exactly surround himself with the literati. In fact, he wrote his first book on a bar bet with a friend. I'll let Keith A Pearson tell the rest of his story.

Inspirational Indie Author Interview. Keith A Pearson: About the Author
Describing himself as a writer of vaguely believable tales, Keith A Pearson has released thirteen novels over the last six years. Since his first novel, The ’86 Fix, landed on Amazon’s virtual shelves in 2016, Keith has sold over 500,000 books and now writes full-time from his home in Surrey. He has no formal qualifications in writing and, despite forty years of trying, still hasn’t completed a single side of a Rubik’s Cube. His latest novel, The Strange Appeal of Dougie Neil, was published in March and it hit the top-fifty in the Amazon UK book store within a week of release. You can discover more about Keith and his novels via his website. He is also available on Twitter and Facebook.
