K. Vann O'Brien

Goodreads Author




Member Since
August 2009


Kim O'Brien grew up reading and daydreaming beside the rivers and live oaks of the Texas hill country.

With starry-eyed visions of travel and adventure, O'Brien pursued a Journalism degree. Quickly after graduation, the politics of media got her down, and she looked for other, if less adventurous, writing opportunities.

After a decade of nomadic living and seven years of writing professionally, O'Brien returned to the hills and rivers of her childhood to write books and daydream once again.
