Bill McKell


Bill McKell began creating and telling campfire stories while he was in high school and has been doing so ever since. As a scout leader for almost 20 years, Bill perfected his stories around the campfire on monthly campouts and then used them to entertain large gatherings at scout camps and other events. He now shares his stories at church, school and business events throughout the Midwest.

Bill McKell graduated from Ohio Northern University with a degree in Elementary Education. After five years as a middle school teacher, Bill joined The Chillicothe Telephone Company. The company, founded by the McKell family in 1895, is headquartered in the southern Ohio community where Bill resides with his wife, Peggy, and their daughters Kristen, Lauren, Meghan, Caitlyn, Shaelyn and Jaidyn. Today, Bill McKell is president of Horizon Telcom, the parent company of The Chillicothe Telephone Company.

Inspired by personal experiences and special people in his life, Bill’s stories are filled with authentic characters, traditional values, heartwarming messages, and surprise endings. Although crafted originally for young people, Bill’s stories have universal appeal.
