Vincent O'Keefe         Writer * Stay-at-Home Dad * Ph.D.
 Welcome! Here are my current projects         (PR Friendly. Contact me for details or follow me on Twitter: ):

 A) Seeking an agent for a humorous memoir about a decade of at-home parenting.

 B) Writing essays and book reviews about parenting, as well as a second memoir.

Watch my appearance on Huff Post Live to discuss "No More Trophy Wives"! Themes of the 10-minute segment include "smart is sexy" & success needs to be redefined. Also, the host asks me if I consider myself a "trophy husband." For my answers, see minutes 2:30, 5:30, and 8:30.

Listen to my "birth story" as a stay-at-home dad, which I told on The Regina Brett Show on WKSU, an NPR affiliate. The first 8 minutes of the show focus on my story (and end with a guaranteed laugh). 


Before having children, Vincent O’Keefe taught writing and literature at the University of Michigan while living in rival Ohio, much to his students’ dismay! His writing has appeared (or is forthcoming) in a variety of venues, including The New York Times "Motherlode" blog, The Shriver Report, Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop, Brain, Child, The Washington Post website, The Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, Role/Reboot, and What Would MacGyver Do? True Stories of Improvised Genius in Everyday Life, edited by a former editor at Esquire
