Keith Massey, Ph.D.
My novels tell stories of adventure where the worlds of
espionage and languages meet. Please watch the videos I've
made for A Place of Brightness and In Saecula Saeculorum.
Welcome to my website.
I studied Latin and Greek in my
undergrad studies at the
University of Wisconsin. I earned
my Ph.D. in Biblical Hebrew, with
a minor in Arabic from that
After 9/11 I worked for four years
as a linguist at the National
Security Agency. I'm honored to
have received the Global War on
Terrorism Civilian Service Medal
for my service in Iraq.
I'm now a Latin teacher in a
public high school and you'll find
here music, videos, and stories
produced especially with Latin
language fans in mind.
I've created free resources for
other languages I've learned and
love: Arabic, Romanian, and
Spanish. Connect with me on
Google+ and Twitter.

Original Thin: the Paleo Diet in the Bible and Ancient
The Paleo Diet has helped thousands lose weight and keep it off. It’s the way our
earliest ancestors ate, and so it’s the best way to stay lean and strong.
But now, Dr. Keith Massey has uncovered evidence that the Bible and other Ancient
Literature preserved a distant memory of this diet.
From the Garden of Eden all the way to the Greek Olympics and beyond, ancient
people knew that Man should not live on Bread alone.

A Place of Brightness
Stefan and Andrew Valquist had a strange childhood. Their mother, who claimed to
have fought as an anti-Communist insurgent back in Romania, taught them everything
she knew before her death.
Andrew Valquist is just back from Iraq when he and his twin are racing to Romania on
an adventure that will threaten their lives and, they'll soon learn, the free world as we
know it. And it's somehow connected to their mother's mysterious past.

In Saecula Saeculorum
In Saecula Saeculorum is the perfect novel for anyone who has ever studied Latin. But it's
a good read for anyone who enjoys adventure, drama, and even romance.

They've got all the typical worries of teenagers. Grades and romance top the list of their
dramas. But their last four years have been a lie. They thought they were in high school,
but they were actually being trained in a joint NSA/MI-6 mission to go back in time to
save the world!
