GM O'Connor


I’ve wanted to make movies since I saw King Kong in 1976. Then in 1979 a fictitious present giver left a small book in my stocking: The Star Trek the Motion Picture Photostory by Pocket Books (which I still have). A frame by frame graphic novel of the movie which started me writing and sketching my own ideas. Then when I was a teenager, I started working on a historical fiction story taking place in Port Royal, Jamaica in the 1600s, a time period and a climate I was much more comfortable in. I had compiled at least 6 series starting with the English conquest of Jamaica in 1655, all the way through and well into the 1700s, with the ambitious intention of bringing it to film and graphic novel – which it didn’t.

Decades later, a friend suggested I turn the old story into a graphic novel series – so I dusted cobwebs off the stack of pages and had another look. I really wished I’d numbered them. It was then, my friend MJL Evans mauled over the endless miles of scribbles and fell in love with the story and characters. Well, once I let her out of the trunk. MJ thought it deserved another go and felt that a series of eBooks may be the way to start. From my original (chaotic) scripts, she started writing what is now “The Pikeys,” though it takes place later in the series, it was a simpler place to start and features some of the characters she had invented. So, with some of my original characters, fictional and non-fictional, and new ones of hers and mine, we started “No Quarter.” The plan, we’d start with eBook novellas, hopefully graduating to a series of graphic novels, and even film or TV. Because ya never know, anything’s possible on this nut-farm planet.
