Bobbie O'Keefe

Biography

If Bobbie O'Keefe isn't reading, she's writing, and vice versa. Blessed with a rich imagination, she started making up characters and plots in her mind way back when she was a kid growing up a block away from the mighty Pacific Ocean. That was her playground as a kid and she still loves the beach.

She writes what she likes to read, and her interests are varied. So far, her published novels (in print and/or ebook) include a romantic comedy, a novel of romantic suspense, a Texas romance/family saga, a whodunit, and a couple contemporary romances. She's now at work on "The Downing Pond," a psychological mystery with just a touch of paranormal. Look for it soon at Smashwords. Contact her at bobbie@bobbieokeefe.com. She'd love to hear from you.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
My all time favorite has to be Barbara Michaels. I've read everything she's written. In her books I found humor, mystery, suspense, and even a touch of the paranormal. In one of my books, "Legend in Buckskin," I kept thinking of her. Of course I couldn't touch her style any more than she could touch mine, but she kept coming to mind anyway.

Sandra Brown delivers a really good story, often exceptional reads. Karen Robards is also good, as is Tami Hoag, Nora Roberts. The list is endless. The best book I ever read, however, is not by one of my favorite authors, yet it continues to stand out in my mind. I even read it more than once and will most likely read it again: "The Stand" by Stephen King, a classic good vs evil story with deeply developed and interesting characters that stay with a reader long after the book is read.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh, yes, quite well. That particular one will never see publication however because I wrote scenes as they occurred to me, and what I ended up with was too episodic. One of the characters actually changed character as the book progressed (believe me, I use the word progressed quite loosely here).

After that disaster, I wouldn't allow myself to ever jump ahead and write a scene or character. Page one precedes page two; scene one precedes scene two; and chapter one precedes chapter two. No exceptions!
