Author: Kevin O'Brien
For seventeen years, before his thrillers landed him on The New York Times Bestseller list, Kevin O’Brien made his living as a railroad inspector and did all his writing at night. His second novel, ONLY SON (1996), was optioned for film rights, thanks to interest from David Seltzer (THE OMEN)and Tom Hanks. It was also chosen by Readers Digest for its Select Editions–along with John Grisham’s THE PARTNER. “Seeing my photo on the back cover–alongside John Grisham–really made me feel as if I’d ‘arrived’ as an author,” Kevin admits.
Kevin has been writing full time ever since. But he hasn’t forgotten his railroad “ties.” So–if on occassion, you find a scene in a Kevin O’Brien thriller in which a dead body is discovered in a railroad yard, well, now you know why.
