Katie O’Connor lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She married her high school sweetheart and is living her happily ever after. She is the mother of two grown daughters and is extremely proud of her five grandchildren. She has two wonderful sons-in-law and a large support network of friends, family and fellow authors.
Katie’s career path has been long and twisted, with most of her life devoted to her family. She’s been a waitress, chambermaid, cashier, store manager, as well as a lab and x-ray technician. She is an avid quilter and for a number of years owned and operated a home-based quilting business and designed quilt patterns.
She’s dabbled in writing since high school because something drives her to create stories. She swears that it’s impossible for her NOT to write. She says, “I think my head would explode if I kept all those ideas trapped inside. I even dream story lines. My mind is a wildly creative place and all those ideas have to be downloaded to relieve the pressure.”
She believes in all things magical including dragons, fairies, UFOs, ghosts, and house pixies. But most of all she believes in love, romance and hope.
Katie likes to make it up as she goes along and dreams of publishing 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 her biography.
