The Coincidence of Birth by Ty Keenum

“The Coincidence of Birth” is a collection of short stories by North Carolina native and nationally recognized writer Ty Keenum. Keenum’s personal journey began in the mountains of North Carolina with residence stopovers in Florida, Texas, and finally  culminating in  Atlanta, Georgia.

Like the author, the story’s settings wind throughout the southland from the mountains of West Virginia to the Gulf coast of Florida, the furniture markets of North Carolina and culminates in of all places, the White House.

The stories’ themes are as disparate as the locations and cover an extensive variety  of human conditions  and circumstances. All circumstances that were put into play by “The Coincidence of Birth.”
