O. Dada


Something interesting about me: I’m an award winning fiction writer who doesn’t read a lot of fiction; I think real life is more interesting.

What I do when I’m not at the library: Woodworking. I have a garage workshop where I build shelves, benches, tables and pretty much any interesting wooden contraption I can conjure up.

If I wrote a memoir, it would be called: Take This Book with a Grain of Salt

Last thing I read: Gulp, by Mary Roach

What I’m reading now: Cockpit Confidential by Patrick Smith
