- 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. The third one is coming. I promise.
- I contribute to SkilledUp’s Talent Lab and Book Riot. (Want to see my freelance portfolio? It’s here.)
- I’ve been a reporter for 15 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 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.
- Right now I’m writing DinoLand, a sci-fi webserial about dinosaurs at Geek Eccentric.
- I live in Connecticut with my husband and son, a cat, a dog, and a very angry Betta fish named Leto who lives in a bowl I’ve named Caladan.
