O. G. Tomes
Born in 1963 in a suburb of Birmingham, AL. A daughter and sister, mother and now a grandmother she has spent her life caring for those around her. Now with her youngest close to graduating and heading off to college she has found the time to publish the chronicled stories of her favorite characters, some of which were created while she was in the first grade and used in creating story books for her children. A weaver of tales since her youth, as O.G. Tomes, she now spins the yarn creating story lines from the cloth of life. Meshing the old with the new, giving way for her readers to rethink the whole concept of 'good vs. evil' along with the humorous and darker sides of human nature. You can expect a varied reading selection as eclectic as her reading tastes are to be produced that follow the inclinations of her natural talents. She writes from her quaint home atop the mountain in an area of the Appalachians that for centuries has been home to her family. Her unique gifts were fostered by her great grandmother, her grandmother and her father giving her a solid foundation from which she writes. Self-publishing has allowed her to utilize the multifaceted array of her natural talents in promoting others by mentoring, reviews, interviews and she has produced several book trailers for her literary works, as well as for other writers and authors.
"Some of my first memories are of telling stories to my siblings at bedtime. As I grew older, I was always the one requested to 'tell a story' around the fire at summer camp. The 'consumate narrator' on almost any topic usually kept me close to the line of trouble in school. Time progressed yet I still challenge myself to reach further in to my creativity with established goals as my incentive. Simply, I love to write and create. I cherish my family, whom understands my eccentric and varied approach to everything 'author'.

Smashwords book reviews by O. G. Tomes
- FRACTURE The Secret Enemy Saga
on April 25, 2012
A smartly accomplished and compelling plot! Talent and imagination meet technique in the unlikeliest of places.... the "Fracture" between two worlds.
The characters are driven by McKevitt's own hand. Built by her obvious vivid imagination you will come to know them personally. They will pull you in to the story not chapter by chapter but paragraph by paragraph.
McKevitt's writing style is freshly surprising and flourishes with touches of realism that make the "Secret Enemy Saga" a double edged tale that lingers long after the last word is read.
McKevitt's thought processes are well formed and believable. Maybe too believable.
The ending left me wanting more ...... Thankfully, Book 2 is in the works!
Keep writing McKevitt!
- Skeleton Key
on May 29, 2013
A squeaking door can be heard as each story opens. I enjoyed the tension, pull and subtle way Cp Bialois sneaks up on you in this wonderful compilation of 13 'spookies'....... then he hits you with unexpected twists as the door squeaks to a close. Gathered around the campfire over the holiday weekend I read my favorite, "A Brother's Word", to a group of a friends. They loved it! From "All Nighter" to "Camping 101" Cp covers all the angles and makes you second guess the truth about 'ghosties'!
