Interviewing C A Keith – Pinetree Trail

Introducing the lovely C A Keith who submitted a short story called Pinetree Trail to Love from The Other Side which is the second Ghostly Writes Valentines Antholgoy. The paperback has a huge 60% and the ebook is FREE. Our gift to you.

Hi, I’m Charlotte.  My author name is C.A. Keith. I live in the Niagara wine district of Ontario, Canada. I live between Toronto and Niagara Falls, a stones throw to Lake Ontario. I have two boys 26 and 20, two Bernese Mountain Dogs, and a furry cat. I work as a College Professor in a local community college and I work with a Physiotherapy team. 

I’ve been writing since I was a teenager. I wrote more romance poetry back then. Currently, I am exploring many genres. I started writing romance and erotica, to ghost stories, children’s stories and murder mysteries. As I learn from other talented writers from social media groups, my writing style has improved. I am thrilled to have some of my short stories in various anthologies. The Ghostly Write series being one of them, a couple of fund raisers with the ever so talented, Paul White, (a romance short story), another a collection of short stories for the LGBTQ community. My story hopefully raises awareness about the transgender community. Another short story I wrote was based in Liverpool, a murder mystery investigated at the Albert docks,  for an anthology published by Adam Mitchell. 

I have always been intrigued in the paranormal. I believe spirits move within our realm. The universe is a big place and our living bodies isn’t the end of our life as we know it. My first short  ghostly tale, is based on many true events. The other three short stories were fictional. I tend to bring a lot of myself into my stories as I tend to relate to the characters I write about. The most recent Ghostly Writes Valentine Anthology, was renamed Love from the Other Side.  My short story called ‘The Pinetree Trail,’ follows Sammy and her lovable Bernese Mountain dog Lucy, as they are hiking up the escarpment one frigid wintery day. 

I’ve really enjoyed submitting flash fiction stories and poetry in newsletters published by Plaisted Publishing House and CQ International. My experience working with other authors has helped me grow as a writer. It is a tough market and working with talented writers has been thrilling for me. 

I’m ecstatic to think what the future holds for me as a writer. To me, writing is freedom. A world of fantasy and playfulness. I relate to my two childhood favourite story books; Alice in Wonderland and Charlotte’s Web. I am a daydreamer like Alice and creative like Charlotte. I will continue writing as long as letters become words and words form sentences that string into paragraphs and weave into stories that become novels.  It’s a playful magical journey that my mind lives in. I am OK with that. 

I would definitely continue working with Plaisted Publishing House.  They work hard to make everyone happy. Everyone in the Ghostly Writes social group help to make teasers and videos and always willing to help in any way. 

Thanks for letting me be part of this anthology and others.
