Rob Keeley


I'm a writer of novels, short stories and drama, particularly for children and a family audience. I have written four novels and three collections of short stories for the 8-12s. I am the creator of the "Spirits" series of ghost novels and the fourth of these, "High Spirits" was published in October 2017. The first in the series, "Childish Spirits", was longlisted for the Bath Children's Novel Award as well as being nominated for the People's Book Prize and the International Rubery Book Award. The second in the series, "The Spirit of London" was highly commended for the Independent Author Book Award. I also had a collection of short stories for children ("The Dinner Club and Other Stories") longlisted for the Rubery Award. I have also written for BBC Radio and am currently looking to get into theatre, TV and film. I have a Master of Arts degree in Creative Writing with Distinction from Lancaster University and in 2015 completed a course in Filmmaking from the National Film and Television School, with a course in Screenwriting following in 2016. Since 2016 I have also been a judge for the IGGY and Litro Young Writers' Prize. I am a patron of the Children's Media Foundation. I hold author workshops in schools and other venues and one teacher described these as "inspirational"!
