About Sean Keefer

I like to create and have found an outlet for my ideas in both my writing and music. 

I grew up near the coast in rural South Carolina and started writing while a student at the University of South Carolina.

My first book, The Trust, was published in 2011 and the follow up, The Solicitor, was published in 2017. These two books were the start of the Noah Parks mystery series and the latest installment, The Code, was published 2022. And there’s at least on more book coming in the series.

The books are set in the South Carolina low country where the is inspiration galore. 

Check back here for updates on my writing and my original music project, A Dog Named Bear. Feel free to say Hi!

It should have been an otherwise uneventful Sunday morning for Charleston attorney Noah Parks. Perhaps a trip to the beach or a run with his new Australian Shepherd, Austin. But with a cryptic voicemail, everything changes.

A client has vanished, leaving nothing behind as a clue to where he may be.

Neither his family, friends, nor neighbors can provide little help.

Turning to his friend Emmett Gabriel, Charleston’s newest police detective, Parks can only watch as what started with a simple voicemail takes on a sinister life of its own.

Parks soon finds himself entangled in an affair that spans centuries, going back to the time of Charleston’s birth.

With a focus on learning his client’s fate, Parks will soon find himself facing a mystery that will not only be a test of his wits but leaves him challenged in ways he never imagined.

Facing down twists, turns, betrayals, and traditions of honor, will he break The Code?
