On this episode of Monster Men we welcome back author Keith Rommel and Sunbury Press owner Lawrence Knorr. Keith is releasing a new book, THE DEVIL TREE, which is a terrifying, fictional take on a real life legend in Port St. Lucie, FL.
Keith is an award-winning author, screenwriter and he’s always a ton of fun on the show. We are also thrilled to have Lawrence Knorr on the show. Lawrence is the owner of Sunbury Press, which is the publisher of Keith’s acclaimed Thanatology Series which includes The Cursed Man, The Lurking Man, The Sinful Man and the upcoming novel, The Silent Woman. Also worth checking out from Keith are Among The People and You Killed My Brother.
A movie of The Cursed Man now being produced and is expected in Oct. of 2015.
The Monster Men are very happy to present an interview with author Keith Rommel. This was one of our favorite episodes we have ever recorded. We are sure you’re going to enjoy it.
Keith is the author of THE CURSED MAN, an incredibly original, creepy and entertaining book that is also currently in production as a movie. It’s a great read. This, along with his other books, THE LURKING MAN and the upcoming THE SINFUL MAN, are part of his Thanatology Series. The Encyclopedia Britannica defines Thanatology as “the description or study of death and dying and the psychological mechanisms of dealing with them.” That should set the stage for you.
Here’s the description for THE CURSED MAN:
Alister Kunkle believes death is in love with him. A simple smile from friend or stranger is all it takes to encourage death to kill.
With his family deceased and a path of destruction behind him, Alister sits inside a mental institution, sworn to silence and separated from the rest of the world, haunted by his inability to escape death’s preferential treatment.
But when a beautiful psychologist arrives at the institution and starts offering him care, Alister braces himself for more killings. When none follow, he tries to figure out whether he truly is insane or if death has finally come to him in the form of a woman.
Keith is a fantastic author and a person to keep your eye on. His work is turning a lot of heads and is being described as being in the spirit of Stephen King. High praise indeed.
Keith is also great guy and has absolutely cemented his place as a Monster Man. As you watch this interview, you can’t help but like him. He’s friendly, entertaining and quite candid. We learned the stories behind his books as well as what it’s like to have one of your novels made into a film. It is fascinating. We also partake in some great horror movie and TV talk, as is par for the course on the Monster Men video podcast.
