About the author:
Kevin J. O'Conner is not your typical poet.
He has neither won poetry awards or contests nor earned an advanced degree, studied with a well-known writer, attended writing retreats, or been published in a growing list of obscure-sounding journals.
He writes poems.
Kevin's working method combines monthly writing challenges with writing every day (or as close to it as possible) and posting the day's best (or least horrible) poem to his blog. This approach disqualifies the poems from being considered for publication in most journals, making self-publishing the order of the day.
To date, Kevin has published eight collections of poetry (which he also designed); the latest is ...but for the thoughts running through my mind. He has also published three volumes of 'love notes' to the days of the week, 'Dear Monday...', 'Dear Tuesday...', and 'Dear Wednesday...'.
When not writing poetry, Kevin can be found copy-editing documents from far-flung places, attending open mics, taking photographs, and making large quantities of soup for personal consumption. He lives near Seattle with his remaining feline companion, Trixie. (Sadly, Lucy, a/k/a the Alarm Cat, died in November 2016. She lives on, however, as the Alarm Cat Press mascot.)
...but for the thoughts running through my mind
