Currently working on 'Under the Garden', a young adult fantasy novel about an HIV-positive boy.
Steven O'Connor writes young adult fiction with a futuristic bent. His writing is influenced by Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), Blade Runner, Dr Who, and just about every sci-fi film and TV show you could possibly think of. His initial manuscript for EleMental: A First-person Shooter won him a coveted Young Adult Fiction Writers' Mentorship at the national Varuna Writers' Center in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia. When Steven O'Connor is not writing, he's a professional social worker and he's passionate about his work with young people. Originally from Luton, England, Steven O'Connor now lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife, two teenage children and Sparks, his ever-attentive, ever-hungry Cavalier King Charles spaniel (AKA a toy dog, AKA canny writing assistant).
I'm open to discussion about all opportunities.
