Karl Keating

Karl Keating was born in Chicago, grew up near Los Angeles, and ever since college has lived in San Diego. After practicing law for twelve years he founded a Catholic apologetics ministry from which he is now retired. He has written two traditionally-published bestsellers, one that sold a quarter of a million copies in paperback, another that sold half that many. (He also has written a few doorstops.) Today he writes in multiple genres: religion, history, science, outdoors, publishing, and fiction. At the moment he is writing several books simultaneously. This is not a smart thing to do, but it's the way he works. HIS NEWEST BOOK "Sun, Storm, and Solitude: Discovering Hidden Italy on the Cammino di San Benedetto" is a travel memoir. Full of wit, history, and bad weather, it's an account of a hike along one of Italy's newest pilgrimage routes. A SERIES IN PREPARATION A series (four titles, plus an omnibus) on how *not* to hike and backpack. Lots of books tell you what you should do before and during a trip, but it's equally important to know how to avoid blunders that could ruin what otherwise would be a fine adventure. The constituent books: "How to Fail at Backpacking" "How to Fail at Hiking Mt. Whitney" (already available at Amazon) "How to Fail at Hiking Yosemite" "How to Fail at Hiking Grand Canyon" "How to Fail at Hiking" (omnibus volume) OTHER BOOKS IN PREPARATION 1. A five-book series on self-publishing. 2. A witty and profound collection of 365 witty and profound sayings of Samuel Johnson (1709-1784): a reflection and commentary for every day of the year. 3. A how-to-write-and-edit-your-own-book handbook, written in the voice of Mrs. Malaprop, the famed character from Richard Brinsley Sheridan's play "The Rivals."
