About the author

Katie O'Connor

<p>Greetings Readers:</p> <p>I&rsquo;m Katie O&rsquo;Connor. No, that&rsquo;s not my real name, just in case you wondered!</p> <p>I live in a large city in Western Canada. I married my high school sweetheart and I am living my happily ever after. I am a proud mother and grandmother. I have two great sons-in-law and a large support network of friends, family and fellow authors.</p> <p>I believe in dragons, fairies, UFOs, ghosts, and house pixies and a whole lot of other weird and offbeat things. My greatest asset is my vivid imagination.</p> <p>I have dabbled in writing since just after high school.&nbsp; There is some part of me that drives me to create stories and write them down. It is impossible for me NOT to write. I think my head would explode if I kept all those ideas trapped inside. I even dream story lines. I have thought about keeping a notebook beside my bed so I can start writing the ideas down. But then again, maybe not because some of those dreams seem like fabulous stories while I am dreaming, but are a little suspect on closer examination under daylight. My mind is a very busy place and the ideas just keep on coming. I have to jot them down somewhere, so my laptop is full of partially completed stories, stories in progress and dozens of idea files.</p> <p>Over the years, I have been a waitress, cashier, chambermaid, day home provider and a lab and x-ray technician. It took a long time for me to discover that writing is my passion. At one point, I took some computer programing classes, but alas computers and I are not compatible.</p> <p>I&rsquo;ve tried my hand at writing poetry, science fiction, adventures and romance novels. But my passion is, and always has been romance and erotica. I just had to dig deep and give myself permission to write those naughty bits. My parents know what I do, but I have told my mother that she will never-ever-ever read my erotica. Can you just imagine? I would die. And good lord, don&rsquo;t ever tell the reprobates my husband plays lacrosse with my pen name!</p> <p>I want to publish a mixed genre novel. It is going to be an erotic, shape shifter, vampire, steampunk, sci-fi, murder mystery, adventure, romantic, western, historical thriller. It will be my biography.&nbsp;</p> <p>Here&rsquo;s hoping my stories will entertain you!</p> <p>Hugs,</p> <p>Katie</p>
