In part 2 of our interview with writer David James Keaton. We talk about home medical exams, Dave’s testicle-themed screenplay idea, dreams, and the wedding typewriter incident. David James Keaton’s fiction has appeared in anthologies such as Deadcore, Dark Highlands, and The Death Panel, as well as in Dark Sky, Plots With Guns, and Thuglit, among others. His prison story “Schrödinger’s Rat” is forthcoming in Needle: A Magazine of Noir.
He received his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Pittsburgh and is also the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Flywheel Magazine and a full-time closed captioner. He has recently completed his first novel for which he is seeking representation and can be contacted via email. He has scribbled enough pages for five books and is constantly rewriting three screenplays; a prison movie, a thriller, and a western, simultaneously adapting them into novels. He realizes this method is probably backwards.
