Guest Blog & Giveaway: I'll Be Damned by Casey Keen

UFI welcomes Casey Keen Author of I'll Be Damned. Thanks for Joining us!!

What Inspires me to Write?

What drives you? What makes you better at your job, relationships, etc.? What makes you want to change the world? What makes you feel alive? Answer these questions and you’ve found your inspiration. To some, it’s a football while others it’s a glass of wine. We all have our own reasons and/or motivations backing every aspect in our lives… mine just happens to be my creativity. 

What encouraged me to even attempt writing? First, it began with a fondness. After I read my first paranormal romance series, I fell in love with the whimsical genre. I researched self-publishing and decided to pursue it, I mean, why not? Ideas, plots and characters piled in my head, waiting to be created. Once I opened the creative doors, I couldn’t close them! My imagination spilled out of me and onto my computer screen. I never thought I’d be a writer, or have anything worth writing about, until I opened my mind and blew the dust off my creativity.

What I enjoy most about writing is not only overcoming numerous challenges (writer’s block, stale scenes, etc.), but I feel like a kid again! I haven’t lost the remarkable ability to create, dream, envision, etc. anything I want. What’s the best part? I get to put it all on paper, making it more concrete (to me at least)! My brain giggles excitedly whenever I finish an awesome scene or create a witty response in my character’s dialogue. It’s this excitement that inspires me to continue writing.

I was born in Philadelphia, PA and grew up in the suburban outskirts of this amazing city. I love anything paranormal and/or supernatural - seriously I live in Philadelphia! For those of you who don’t know, this city is an awesomely haunted place! This healthy paranormal addiction has provided me the motivation to write my first book, “I’ll Be Damned.”

I graduated from Drexel University with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and I'm currently working on the Anna Wolfe Series.

Anna Wolfe #1

A sister kidnapped.

An impending war between Heaven and Hell looming around the corner.

A Grand Witch who has no idea what she is.

The Prince of Darkness’s obsession in claiming her.

Two sinfully gorgeous men pulling her in two different directions.

As the owner of the coffee shop Déjà Brew in Savannah, Georgia, Anna thought her life was ordinary. That is until her sister is kidnapped by a demon, prompting two handsome men to march into her life unexpectedly. Valen, the sinfully gorgeous, overprotective werewolf who is Anna’s sworn guardian and Roman, the most handsome and powerful Warlock in the entire Netherworld.

Suddenly, her world is stripped of everything she knows and replaced with frightening news about who she really is - a powerful Grand Witch. Now, it’s up to her to draw out her dormant magic, rescue her sister and stop an impending heavenly war threatening to eradicate the human race all while staying alive.
