International award winning author Keith Remer is a native Oklahoman. As such, he realized long ago there are no better breeding grounds for thrillers than the trailer parks, oilfields, churches, ranches, skyscrapers and meth-labs of the Bible-Belt. Remer fills his fictionalized accounts with the products of the region’s western, Native American, outlaw, and fundamental Christian cultures to produce unforgettable characters who bring his unique plots to life.Keith is a retired army colonel. He spends his retirement as a small-time rancher and adjunct college professor. In the late 70’s and early 80’s he took a ten-year break from the army to serve as an Oklahoma City police officer. During those years he policed the roughest precincts of the city. Remer’s specialized military training awarded him opportunities to join the S.W.A.T. team and bomb squad.
Keith was raised as the son of an oilfield roustabout. He spent his formative years in shanties and mobile homes as he was moved from one oil boom town to another. He rubbed elbows with relatives who were outlaw bikers long before putting those types in jail. He’s been in bar fights and shoot-outs and has shaken the hands of two American Presidents. His stories are a product of his background.
To date, Keith has written eight novels and converted two into screenplays. At the insistence of a number of producers and directors, he intends to adapt all his novels for the big-screen.
