Geoff O'Brien

The active-minded author

Bio

author Geoff O'BrienGeoff O’Brien aspires to become an armchair philosopher one day. If only he had an armchair! In the meantime, he’ll settle for something less comfortable, though more versatile: his very own refurbished camping chair, also known as his Grand Writing/Reading/Learning/Gaming/Raving(as context permits) Seat. From this lofted furnishing doth he orate to the world.

In other words, Geoff enjoys writing novels to expand both his and reader’s perspectives. To this end, prior to Existence, his two previous novels have depicted a preteen type 1 diabetic girl playing junior rugby league(Better Together), and a deaf teenager and her hard-of-hearing friends playing a pro-disability-themed online card-collectible video game(Siren Plays Zeperno). He’s currently working on the next Win-Win For the Win and Philosophy of Life novels.

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

Existence front cover

Existence

Existence exists.

Newly awakened young woman Zhéxué thinks she knows many things, from the Vatican to virtual reality, yet she doesn’t know anything about herself. Who is she? How was she created? Why is she at the centre of everyone’s schemes?

Rushed along in an unwitting tour–actual and virtual–of parts of post-cataclysmic Earth, constantly pushed around for days at a time by her so-called allies as much as her enemies, Zhéxué is barely able to stop and think. At last, she uncovers vital information about her nature, and of existence. These discoveries inform a desperate plan to save a friend she once thought lost.

Yet if Zhéxué cannot conceive the first axiom, the most fundamental truth, she and her friend will be killed… or worse.
