  • (1888PressRelease) September 21, 2021 - Throughout this book is the metaphor to archery. Arrows fly; arrows land; arrows miss; arrows hit. The aim isn't merely metaphoric. It's a missed opportunity: a mother to know her son, a father to be the protector... the boy.

    As the author targets the past and present in a series of well-paced vignettes, we are not left wondering about the destruction of child abuse and the scars it leaves. Text credited to The Wounded Storyteller gives the author a chance to share his questions of faith and existence, a search for meaning.

    The Day the Sky Broke Open is an engaging read into hurt. Hoerner weaves dialog with honesty and poetic verse. His sense of emotional timing puts the reader in the front row of a house of dysfunction.

    About Keith T. Hoerner: an advocate for healing through writing, Keith had a successful career in marketing and sales, winning 33 national / international awards for excellence in these two fields. A medical scare led him to achieving an M.F.A. in writing (his passion), the reward of teaching, and - eventually - finding peace with a troubled past.

    Keith (B.S., M.F.A.), lives, teaches, and pushes words around in Southern Illinois. He is the founding editor of The Dribble Drabble Review and has been featured in numerous national / international literary journals, as well as anthologies, and other publications. This is his first book.

    His second book, a collection of short fiction and poetry titled Balancing on the Sharp Edges of Crescent Moons, will publish with Adelaide Books, NY / Lisbon, in Spring of 2022.

    The Dribble Drabble Review, the on-line literary magazine of which Keith is the founding editor, was recently recognized in the 2021 / 25th Annual Webby Awards as an Honoree (aside The Paris Review) awarding the Best on the Internet (Cultural Category). The Webby Awards are presented by The Int'l Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. Too, the Review was selected for representation in the Best Microfiction Anthology 2022.
