Rob Keast lives with his wife and six-year-old daughter near Detroit, Michigan, where he teaches middle-school and high-school English. He recently finished writing a novel for young adults, for which he is seeking an agent. His longest-running literary creation is Petunia, a rabbit who stars in a new adventure every night at bedtime.
The nature trail closest to my house doesn’t take me to any overlooks or waterfalls. The scenery is a few flat acres of meadow grass, a shallow pond, maples, and oaks.
