GEOFF O'BRIEN, the active-minded author


author Geoff O'BrienGeoff O’Brien is in the middle of an epic journey, having left Notimperfectown a while back. When he gets to Selfmademanville, he’ll send a postcard. Assuming those exist in the future.

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. Such as Siren Plays Zeperno, which is his second novel. He's working on two more novels. One is a lighthearted 'middle grade' story, the other a philosophical dystopian sci-fi.

He currently resides in North Queensland, because he thought it would be a good idea at the time. Get in touch with him at He maintains author pages at Amazon, Goodreads, and Books2Read. He doesn't have any social media accounts.
