About the Author

Gary A. Keel's upbringing in Hope, Indiana, revolved around family, the Moravian Church, and sports. His father, an Eisenhower Republican and decorated World War II veteran, exposed him to politics through hunting trips with local politicians, and discussions during poker games at the local American Legion Hall. His mother, a Great Society/War on Poverty Democrat, exposed him to pressing social issues by taking him on trips into the back woods to introduce the rural poor to social welfare programs.

He enlisted in the military, spending a year in Vietnam where many childhood ideals were challenged. A degree in political science and a graduate degree in Public Administration from Indiana University led to his career with the federal government, where he moved up the hierarchy to executive level positions. He was appointed by Ronald Reagan to a task force designed to set up Inspector Generals throughout the government. When George W. Bush was elected, he was appointed to a political position where he gained an intricate understanding of government.

Milestones in his career included talking to Secretary of State Colin Powell the morning of his infamous WMD speech at the UN, and a discussion with Bono about his philanthropic projects in Africa. He worked with special assistants to Leonid Brezhnev and Nobel Prize winner Lech Walesa on business development programs in Russia and Poland. His work on economic development projects around the world included a geothermal plant in India, sanitary wells in Kenya, and entry-level housing development in South Africa. When NAFTA was adopted, he worked with maquiladoras in Mexico.

The above provided a backdrop for his novel Executive Order 14900 and its sequels, which together form the compelling Strife in America series.

Gary A. Keel's Executive Order 14900 is a thrilling read filled with historical facts, suspense, and great expectation that good will indeed overcome evil. He recognizes how precious our freedom is today as it was on the day our Constitution was signed, September 17, 1787. I lived vicariously through the pages as the American people called for a constitutional convention and rightfully took back the authority that 'We the People' were granted by our Founding Fathers. As John Adams once said, "You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom, I hope you will make a good use of it." His message is at the core of this book!

Executive Order 14900 is a most excellent, powerful and intriguing book depicting what can happen when our system of governmental checks and balances are ignored by those in power. Thank God for the US Constitution and the people and groups not afraid to use it as intended by our founding fathers. I hope there's a sequel showing justice being served and a warning against complacency. Bob Quinn Trent Woods, NC

As the author states in his acknowledgement, his Cherokee grandmother taught him that there is a story teller in all of us--it comes across clearly in his writing that there is a great writer and story teller in the author Gary A. Keel . The novel is thrilling from the first sentence: Private Denny Lang sat behind his M240 machine gun on high alert. This book Executive Order 14900 is intriguing and makes me want to read more of his work because facts are combined with history. It is obvious that the author has insight and knowledge combined with creativity. Excellent novel. I would like to visualize it as a movie. I bought two additional copies for Christmas presents and look forward to reading many more novels by this author.
