News about my upcoming novel

Thomas E. Kennedy, an incredible writer (hint: go find his work and read it!) and professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s MFA in Creative Writing program, provided this to say about my upcoming novel The Garden of Fragile Things:

“A group of small-town New Jersey adolescent outsiders, a forest, a mysterious abandoned house, and a secret world within the world we inhabit provide the intriguing ingredients for this compelling, breezily-told tale by Richard J. O’Brien.  From the first couple of paragraphs, The Garden of Fragile Things holds you in its charm.  Anyone who is young, anyone who can or wants to remember the mystery, enchantment and fragility of youth will enjoy the rich mystery of O’Brien’s Garden of Fragile Things.  You won’t want to put it down – and you probably won’t either until there are no more pages to turn.”

Thomas E. Kennedy, author of In the Company of Angels, Beneath the Neon Egg, and Falling Sideways

Many thanks to Tom and everyone else who read this book in its various guises before it was accepted at Dark Alley Press (an imprint of Vagabondage Books). Here’s to June and the release of my novel!
