Please give a warm welcome to author Erin O’Kane
Tell us a bit about yourself
Erin O’Kane is my pen name. I Work full time in the health care industry. I have a wonderful husband and no children yet, but we have one fur baby, a rabbit named Jethro!
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I never thought it was an option for me until recently, so I have never considered it. I have always written stories, but it’s only recently that people have started to listen to them.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
A lot of the main character from Hunted By Shadows is based off me, she is also a nurse which speaks to me! I can’t say that I had a eureka moment with this, I just created the characters ans they started talking to me. The story develops from there.
What are you working on now?
I am working on a couple of things. Lost in Shadows– Shadowborn series book 2, The Wild Interview– co-author book with K.A. Knight, and a secret project!
Do you have any quirks while writing?
I can’t write without music, it can be anything, but I can’t stand silence. I also drink a large amount of caffeine when I write. I don’t usually drink caffeine, but writing drives me to do it!
What are your hopes for the future?
I had never thought that writing was an option for me, and it has taken me completely by surprise that the book has done really well! So until recently I had no plans! I am hoping that the books continue doing well and I can go part time at work so I can spend more time writing!
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Don’t give up! It’s so difficult as a new self publish author to get your name out there and get people to take a chance on you. Keep going, get a good group of authors as friends to help and encourage you!
Do you have anything to say to your fans?
Yes! Mostly just Thank you so much for all your support and for taking a chance on me!
