Vaughn Keller has been a police officer, high school teacher, launch boy, university professor, boat captain, researcher, salesman, psychotherapist, bartender, and consultant. Along the way he has collected two masters degrees, a doctorate, three professional certificates, and more graduate credits than anyone should ever have.
Through it all he has written: short stories, professional articles, essays, poetry, and the novel Behind the Neon. As a consultant, leader, teacher, and clinician, his day job(s) have focused on change: individual, organizational, societal. He has worked with and for large corporations and small community groups. He admits to being a professional change junkie.
He lives across the street from a pond in Plymouth, Massachusetts with his wife, Mary Ann Hergenrother, an elderly german shepherd (Cara na Chroí) and a sprightly miniature poodle (Charley).
