Keith G. Laufenberg was born in New York in 1945 and grew up there and several other places throughout the world as his father, a naval officer and Government Service worker, was transferred several times during his childhood. He got into a lot of trouble in high school and was considered a juvenile delinquent when he voluntarily joined the Marine Corps, at age 17, in 1962. His novel, Semper-Fi-Do-Or-Die was a direct result of this service and his other stories are greatly influenced by it. He began writing poems after his discharge and soon moved to short stories and novels. He has had over 100 poems and short stories published in numerous journals and magazines and has one poetry chapbook, five books of short stories and five novels, all which can be assessed on his webpage as well as in the Amazon bookstore and Kindle e-book store.
I read Keith's other novel, Semper-Fi, and really liked it and Miami Rock is more of the same. This is the same principal character, Gary Greb, and he and his ex-marine pal Shamrock who was also a main character in Semper-Fi, encounter stuff that real-life only throws at you every once in awhile and the way they deal with it is turned into one of the best stories I've read since I don't know when. Well since I read Semper-Fi about 2 months ago. I like this writer a lot.
