Ty Keenum is the author of the upcoming novel The Little Church in the Valley (2022) and Momma, Can You Hear Me? (2021).
Ty Keenum was born in Asheville, N.C. during the Truman administration. His family’s fortunes bounced from poor to middle class repeatedly during his formative years. Ty’s parents divorced when he was 10 and he and his brother lived with their Dad and his family until Ty was able to head out on his own. The lack of a traditional upbringing gave him the opportunity to live in multiple southern states: North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Texas. He has also traveled Arkansas and Louisiana extensively. The changes in circumstance and locations have given him an appreciation for people from all walks of life. The changes in station also gave Ty the opportunity to reinvent himself at each location. These reinventions eventually led to a career in programming accounting systems and website development.
Ty currently lives in Atlanta, GA, with his wife of 42 years. When they’re not enjoying their kids and grandkids, Ty finds time for gardening, reading, writing, and of course Georgia football.
