Keith lives in Swansea, Massachusetts. He has an abiding love and passion for the visual, literary and performing arts. At an early age he started playing the classical guitar and studying privately with Maestro Joseph Raposo, Sr. (Boston Conservatory of Music) until he was 17. He started writing poetry in high school. Reading, music, storytelling and movies became singular passions for him, all of which set him on a lifelong path of exploration in creativity.
This book is AMAZING! The imagery is vivid, the storytelling superb. It is difficult to put down, and the twists and turns in the plot will keep you hooked. With such a surprise ending, I’m thrilled that it’s a trilogy with more to come! Recommended reading for anyone with an imagination.

I have read the first chapters of your book and I want more!!!! Gifted writing from what seems a keen mind, an astute writer. It seems life is full of Ungers. Can’t wait to read more of this adventure that rivals Lord of the Rings.

This brilliant book is a must read for science fiction and fantasy fans, or for anyone who enjoys reading some good old–fashioned escapism. The Penitent is a smart debut novel by A. Keith Carreiro. I found this multilayered story to be fast–paced and elegantly written at the same time.
