Keith Guernsey

November 10, 2017

Written By:

Recently, I had the opportunity to talk with Keith Guernsey. He is a non-fiction writer who specializes in sports and athletic writing. Here is the interview we had, and as you can see, he isn't too much of a talker. Ha ha!

 

AJ: Tell us a little about yourself.

 

KG: I am retired after a forty year career in sales and sales management with several fortune 500 companies. I currently live on Lake Lanier with my wife Susan and four-footed son, Harley. I spent a good portion of my youth playing sports, active in both football and hockey. In 1995 I was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor (called an Acoustic Neuroma) and underwent a ten hour operation at the world-renowned Brigham and Women's hospital, where it was successfully removed. 

 

While recovering, I met and married Susan. Together we faced my next challenge. In 1997, my neuroma returned. I was to undergo yet another, more complex, operation which resulted in a complete cure, however side effects of this second, more invasive, procedure caused prolonged inactivity and led to severe weight gain of over 100 lbs.  Today I am very proud of the fact that I have been able to overcome my physical challenges, losing over one hundred and thirty five pounds, and have found the time to write two successful books “Confessions of a Beantown Sports Junkie and “Fathers and Sons-Sports and Life”. I, now, enjoy a more active and rewarding lifestyle at age sixty-five, than I did at twenty five!  My current interests include senior softball, member of the Cresswind Fitness Committee. I have recently been elected to the Board of Directors of ITN Lanier, volunteer as a delivery driver for Meals-On-Wheels, and work as a counselor for veterans who are looking to re-enter the work force.

 

 

 

AJ: How many books have you written?

 

KG: Two

 

AJ: In what genre would you classify your works?

 

KG: Non-fiction

 

 

AJ: Do you work from an outline, or do you prefer to see where the story leads you?

 

KG: From the heart-I let the story take me where it needs to go...

 

 

AJ: What are your current projects?   

 

 

KG: My third book is entitled "DeShaun Watson; The Making of a Legend"

 

 

AJ: Do you enjoy reading, as well? If so, whose books do you read for inspiration?

 

KG: Patterson/Baldacci

 

 

AJ: What is your goal, or mission, as a writer?

 

KG: To leave a legacy for my grandson

 

 

AJ: What do you do to get book reviews?

 

KG: I follow up with my readers and send them a thank you note with a link to the review page on Amazon

 

 

AJ: Is there anything that you’ve found to be particularly challenging in your writing?

 

KG: Editing

 

 

AJ: How can readers discover more about you?

 

KG: You can find me on:
