Thriller Writer Tj O'Connor

The First Shot…

May 31, 2012

Alas, it’s true. The Mayans have a calendar to tell us when the world ends. Cable channels have movies that play out our demise. Even my Labs know when doom approaches. Now, the world is certainly ending – I have a blog. Run. Save yourselves. No, don’t. Stay tuned and I hope to have a future blog announce a book sale. If not, you’ll be reading about my pain and agony and despair. Or not.

As my first post (I’ve never blogged and that might be evident about now), I suggest patience with me. I have so many folks to thank for getting my writing moving as it is that I cannot begin to list them. For a start, there is my mentor, two editors who are good friends, and my agent who has given me hope that I can really do this. You know who you are so thanks all!

I’ll let you know as things happen. No, there won’t be a big “Tj” signal flashing in the night sky or a secret code over your radio. But I’ll let you know. Thanks for tuning in and fingers crossed one of my books ends up on a shelf soon!



I first fell in love with writing while in grade school and over the years continued to dabble with characters and stories whenever life allowed. Lately, I've focused my energy on pursuing this dream—interrupted only by life as a security consultant and the demands of two Labrador retrievers.
