Spotlight On: Dan O’Brien




What is your latest release and what genre is it?

Water. It is literary suspense with a dash of apocalyptic humor and intrigue.


Quick description of it.

The next installment in the B-Sides series follows a father and son living out a quiet life in northern Arizona. A strange occurrence at the border, and a series of events that turns the world upside down, plunges society into a spiral from which it might not be able to recover. Having to flee from their home with a band of unlikely friends in tow, the open road beckons.

Can they survive?


Something unique about it.

It is a novella that takes place in a large universe comprised of a multitude of characters. Think Lost meets The Dark Tower with some Walking Dead thrown in.
