- My name is A.J. O’Connell. I’m an author, but make my living as a freelance journalist and editor.
- My first novella Beware the Hawk, was published in 2012. The sequel, The Eagle & The Arrow, was published in 2013.
- Right now I’m writing DinoLand, a sci-fi webserial about dinosaurs at Geek Eccentric. (It ain’t your daddy’s Jurassic Park.)
- This year, I was a chapter editor for a non-fiction writer’s guide: Now What? The Creative Writer’s Guide to Life After the MFA.
- I’m a member of The New England Horror Writers Association.
- I’ve been a reporter for 14 years, and I taught journalism at a community college for five years.
- I obtained my MFA in creative writing from Fairfield University in 2011.
- I’m working on the second draft of a novel.
- I live in Connecticut with my husband and son, a cat, a dog, a very angry Betta fish and a bunch of indifferent gold ones.
