WHO WE ARE
Wayne J. Keeley
Wayne doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up, but he’s had a lot of practice. He’s worn many hats in numerous professions including as a producer, director, writer, actor, teacher, author, media attorney, and (gasp!) while not exactly as a professional, even a gambler. If it wasn’t for Stephanie, his wife, soulmate, creative muse, and partner, he would have found himself a washed-up, online poker player. Wayne is a five-time Emmy-nominated producer and two-time winner for creating public service campaigns and announcements. He also is the recipient of the prestigious Chris Award for Outstanding Commercial and Bronze Plaque Award for Best Feature Documentary from the Columbus International Film and Video Festival. He has produced, written, and directed documentaries, educational programs, and music videos which have had national and international distribution. His videos also have been bestsellers on Billboard’s national charts. Today Wayne works exclusively and creatively with his better half and together they have produced and written Emmy Award-nominated programming; written, produced, and directed Off-Off Broadway plays; written screenplays; and co-authored novels.

Stephanie C. Lyons-Keeley
Stephanie has a gift for understanding the human condition; since childhood, she’s had a keen sense for what makes people tick. Fast forward to adulthood and her exploration into what underlies human nature led her to the field of psychology and work as a psychotherapist and professor of psychology. But Stephanie also is an artist and a storyteller, so in her quest to weave together her many avid interests, she spends many an hour tapping away at the keys of her laptop creating screenplays, stage plays, and novels, in addition to other projects and of course this blog. But she wouldn’t be where she is today without the synergy and energy derived from the incredible relationship she has with her partner-in-crime and loving and talented husband, Wayne. Plucking her from the doldrums of freelance journalism (she met him when assigned to write a story about a public service announcement he had created), Wayne believed Stephanie would make an “excellent producer” – and so a business and creative relationship was forged – until it later became a romantic one as well. Now, more than a decade later, the two both work and play together, spending nary a moment apart (how do they do it?)! It is in this spirit that they have produced and written Emmy Award-nominated programming; written, produced, and directed Off-Off Broadway plays; written screenplays; and co-authored novels.
