LINN KELLER is an expatriated Appalachian storyteller who lived "under the siren" for more than two decades as a firefighter-EMT, EMT-Paramedic and deputy marshal ... simultaneously.
Somewhere in all that active confusion he became a nurse, and through it all he remains licensed and active in municipal water and wastewater treatment.
A lifetime historian, researcher and re-enactor, Keller lectures on the Civil War and Morgan's Raid, lives reluctantly in Northeast Ohio when he cannot get away to a Western European monastery in the 10th Century, where he portrays Brother William, a Cistercian monk -- or into the American West in the 1880s, where he portrays the second Sheriff of Firelands County, Colorado.
His wife assures him he still doesn't know what he wants to do when he grows up.
Keller has written The Sheriff's Legacy (October 2008) and now its sequel, The Sheriff's Betrayal. The third book in the Sheriff's series, The Sheriff's Journal, is planned for October 2010, with another in the works.
