About the author:
As a young adult, Kelan O'Connell spent her summers aboard a family houseboat in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Apparently, she still harbors suspicions about those deep murky waters.
Though she's been writing in one form or another since the age of 20, Delta Legend is Kelan O'Connell's first solo novel. She began writing in college, creating character monologues as a way to stand out in auditions and later went on to write sketch comedy, one-act plays, and more specs for screen than she cares to admit.
Kelan holds a degree in Theatre Arts from San Francisco State University and has worked in the Film and Television Industry in Northern California and Los Angeles-among her many other day jobs. She currently lives in Northern California with her partner, Sound Engineer/Producer, Tom Size, and the incredibly spoiled pets of Camp RunAmuck.

When 16-year-old Oakland teen, Calvin Pierce, makes a bad decision and winds up getting arrested, his mother sends him to spend the summer working for his great uncle in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta.
A black inner-city teenager stuck in the predominately-white region of agriculture and recreational boating-Calvin's a fish out of water with a chip on his shoulder. But when severed body parts are discovered floating in a slough, his summer of proving himself takes on new meaning.
Something deadly is lurking in the deep murky waterways picking off the locals and tourists alike. Now Calvin and a posse of misfits must band together to contain the living incarnation of a mythical creature before it can escape the confines of the Delta.
