About Steven O'Connor

Steven O'Connor writes young adult fiction with a futuristic bent. His writing is influenced by Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), Blade Runner, Dr Who, and just about every sci-fi film and TV show you could possibly think of.

His initial manuscript for EleMental: A First-person Shooter (aka EleMental) won him a coveted Young Adult Fiction Writers' Mentorship at the national Varuna Writers' Center in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia.

The print edition of EleMental was first published in Australia by Pier 9/Murdoch Books in 2010. The 2012 'makeover edition' is now available through Amazon. MonuMental, the follow-up featuring the same characters one year later, was published in February 2013.

When Steven O'Connor is not writing, he's a professional social worker and he's passionate about his work with young people.

Originally from Luton, England, Steven O'Connor now lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife, two teenage children and Sparks, his ever-attentive, ever-hungry Cavalier King Charles spaniel (aka a toy dog, aka writing assistant).
