Libby O'Neill

Biography

I am an Australian, a fiction writer and artist.
Originally from Maitland, near Newcastle, I have lived in Orange in Central West New South Wales for more than thirty years. Many things inspire my creative pursuits - my life experiences, country and coastal locations and travel.
In 2012, I self-published one of my novels called The Jasper Plate. This novel is available for purchase as a paperback, a hard-cover book and also as an ebook.
Online, visit The Book Depository, Amazon or the Xlibris online bookstore to order, or order from any good bookstore. Links to two of these sites and more information about the book can be found on my website.
