Hi everyone. I go by W.J. O'Neil and I'm a new author just recently self published through amazon and kindle. I have published a new fantasy/adventure novel and a new children's book for beginning readers through them. I'm a father to 5 and grandfather to 9 as well as an avid writer. My stories are based on ones I have told to the children for a good many years now. I also write poetry and will be working in a few other genres as well. I'm happily married and try to live a somewhat semi-retired life in Statesville, North Carolina. I enjoy family time when time permits it and I look forward to when I can just sit back and write full time.
