Keil is a retired lawyer, having practiced law for more than 30 years as both a federal prosecutor and in the private sector. Now well into her second career, Keil’s first project was the co-creation of the satirical Barnyard Lawyer character, using as inspiration her own mini horse, the one and only Gregarious Gus.
She has co-authored five books, co-written more than fifty short stories, and alongside her business partner Doug, developed an entertaining website where people can see the world through the eyes of their pets’ own voice.
During his forty-plus years as a marketing and communications executive, Doug worked with a number of Fortune 500 corporations, as well as smaller and midsize companies.
Doug has had public relations assignments on regional, national, and international levels. He is a wordsmith extraordinaire, with a flair for innovative communication, while using just the right touch of humor when appropriate.
As you may have surmised, he partners with Keil on their multiple literary endeavors.
