Jeff Keene II is the Peg Leg Penman. His moniker comes from the tragic result of a line-of-duty firefighting injury in 1989, which left him with only one foot. Despite this, Jeff has a passion for life that’s evident in everything he does.
A man of many talents, he is a scientist, teacher, Christian, sailor, husband, and father. Despite his talent as a wordsmith, he had no intention of being a writer. With his love of helping others and sharing knowledge, he used his biology, linguistics, and chemistry degrees to become a public school teacher.
It was while teaching that he embraced his true calling—storytelling. Whether crafting lesson plans or telling tales to his students, Jeff always has a way of making the material come to life.
Since becoming a writer, Jeff has published several books. WordCrafts Press published Pericope in 2021. The first-century historical Christian fiction novel follows the story of an adulteress seeking absolution from Jesus for her sins.
