About this author

M.J. O'Shea has been writing romance since algebra class in sixth grade (when most of her stories starred her and Leonardo DiCaprio). When she's not writing, she loves listening to nearly all types of music, painting, reading great authors, and on those elusive sunny days in the Pacific Northwest, she loves driving on the freeway with her windows rolled down and her stereo on high.

After a few weeks off, Dark Sun is back:) I made ita brand new cover, since sadly I couldn’t take Anne Cain’s amazing cover with me, and put it up on Amazon!

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Hi there!!

I'm working on the website..ironically, computers aren't my strong suit:)I only have facebook right now,

As far as the next book, I have a novella that's mostly done but then the whole process has to start on it (submitting, editing, etc.) so it'll probably be spring or summer before that comes along:( Good news is I have a few I'm working on, so there will hopefully be more than one coming out in a short period.
