Geoff O'Brien

The active-minded author


author Geoff O'BrienGeoff O’Brien is not as brave as preteen diabetic girls or rugby league players. He’s scared of needles. Once, he was tackled, which resulted in a weird and gross injury. He never played a contact sport ever again.

A man who enjoys learning on the job, Geoff’s first novel didn’t go so great. Oh well. Plenty more where that came from. Siren Plays Zeperno is about a deaf girl and her hard of hearing friends playing an online card-collectible game. Better Together is the first novel in his Win-Win For the Win series, which portrays a type 1 diabetic girl playing junior rugby league.

Geoff is currently working on at least two more projects: the second Win-Win For the Win novel, and the first entry in a philosophical dystopian sci-fi series.

He currently resides in Central Queensland. Get in touch with him here. He maintains author pages at Amazon, Goodreads, and Books2Read. He doesn't have any social media accounts.
