I am a creative person -- artist, graphic designer, musician/singer, and writer. Only, I'd like to concentrate more on my writing. I am about 20 years past my own deadline for being published in any substantial way. I am single, a NC native but I lived for 20 years in Oregon. I am living in NC again now. I am also a Mormon.
Writing Interests, Goals & Published Works:
I would like to write mysteries -- cozies, a bit of suspense. I also have several plot ideas for some romance novels, some of them with LDS (Latter-day Saint, or Mormon) themes. I do not write only Mormon literature, however, though I do try to adhere to a standard of quality that satisfies my personal morality. On the other hand, I wasn't always Mormon and I have a strong leftover hippie part in me that tries to get out once in a while. Writing is a safe outlet for that facet of my personality, under the circumstances. :)
Ways BAF Might Be Helpful To You:
I'm looking for inspiration. I enjoy graphic design and do it for my day job as well as freelance. I'm afraid to give it up (freelance) because I need the extra cash. But I'd rather earn my "second" living as a writer, especially as I am getting older. I want to be able to write for a living, and to transition into that as I come to retirement. I am a young 56, but one never knows.

O’Brien went to Catholic school, then Georgetown, then film school at Columbia. He was the first editor at Andy Warhol’s Interview. There was a screenplay here and a television show there, a decade of columns for ArtForum. He wrote for High Times and Rolling Stone; he did…
