About this author

Tim O’Mara has been teaching math and special education in the New York City public schools since 1987, 12 of them in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Sacrifice Fly, his first novel, introduces schoolteacher/ex-cop Raymond Donne and was nominated for the 2013 Best First Novel Barry Award. His second Donne mystery, Crooked Numbers launched October 15, 2013. For the past 12 years, he has hosted and co-produced a bi-weekly reading series of poetry and prose in New York City’s East Village. He currently lives and teaches in Manhattan.

Tim O’Mara reads his latest short, “Missing Person,” embodying Charles Salzberg’s mystery hero, skip tracer Henry Swann, to find an evasive historical figure.
