This is the place. You've arrived at Writing@Knight, the website for Keith W. Willis. I'm the author of the award-winning Knights of Kilbourne books, a series of fantasy / medieval romance novels set in the mythical kingdom of Kilbourne. If you like swashbuckling adventure served up with a helping of romance and a dollop of humor (and topped with a dragon) then these books are for you.
On these pages you'll be able to find information about my books, peruse my blog, check out some book reviews, and keep in touch or stay up-to-date with the latest happenings in Kilbourne by signing up for my newsletter. Use the menu above to navigate around. I hope you'll like it here.

The video is loooong--we talked and laughed for two hours. You can always watch it in bits and come back for more later. Grab your own cocoa and settle in...

...plenty of humor, suspense, and romance. It's clear from the beginning that you're in the hands of a master storyteller...
A beautifully-crafted tale of heroes and villains and the occasional dragon. The unexpected plotline keeps you guessing while the characters charm you. I laughed out loud time and again.
It's clear from the beginning that you're in the hands of a master storyteller...
...a witty and action-packed page-turner that takes the classic fantasy land and adds depth, character, romance and political intrigue to brilliant effect.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be swept away to a place and time where dragons fume, damsels toss out witty barbs, and heroes have plenty of foibles.
...a swashbuckling, drama, and punch- (or slap-) filled romp; it’s a tangled web of politics, motives and emotions, all held together with a wonderful dose of heroics, romance, fun and general chaos – and a dragon. Of course.
