Books by D.D. O'Lander

Biography To claim my Irish heritage, I write as D.D.O'Lander, though my name is actually Denise D. Ohlander. Born and raised in Colorado, I've lived elsewhere and enjoy traveling and want to do much more. Recent trips involved research for EMERALD TARGET and two future trilogies: INDIGO DEPTHS and OBSIDIAN HAZE. Family reunions take place every two or three years in Colter Bay, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, which allows hiking in the majesty of the Tetons and the many wonders of Yellowstone National Park to the north. Though adopted, I was blessed with a loving family and live near my brother Jeff. Our parents, Paul and Lee Reddy, have crossed over. I truly believe they know their sometimes wayward daughter hasn't completely squandered her life: ) My birth mother was a Corcoran, so my Irish roots run deep. My son Scott is in the process of moving to an apartment with a couple of buddies this weekend. That will leave me with our two dogs, Ranger & Rubi: a wacky brother and sister with endearing quirks. (Our previous dogs Gabe and Holly wait at the Rainbow Bridge.) Throughout my life there have always been dogs but also horses and other critters. Yes, I love animals. Some of my characters enjoy similar relationships with their animals. Having enjoyed history and writing for many years, it's only fitting I work in a library. My favorite place to shelve is the history section. Imagine that! I've also worked as a Drafting Technician (before the days of CAD), a printing company, lunchroom-playground monitor when Scott was a little guy and volunteered as a Reserve Deputy for the Sheriff's department to name a few of my odd jobs. But, hey, they were all good and taught me a lot about people and living! As my late-in-life author's career picks up, please feel free to become part of it by reading my stories, viewing my website, sending me comments and letting me know what's on your mind. Bright blessings, Denise
