July FWA St. Pete Meeting

For our upcoming meeting on Thursday, July 9th, Author Lisa Ann O'Kane will be speaking. As usual, we meet at the Main Branch St. Pete Library at 6 PM. Networking begins at 5:30 PM. This meeting is always open to the public.

Topic: Embracing Your (Sometimes Fickle) Muse

Writing is a wonderful and challenging endeavor that we, as writers, have decided to conquer. However, writing a memoir, novel, short story, or poem is not as simple as it sounds. At times, a thrilling overload of ideas fuels our creative process, but at other times, the Muse seems to have gone on vacation without asking our permission.

Join us as Lisa Ann O'Kane delves into this topic and the process of writing with our (sometimes fickle) muse.


LISA ANN O'KANE is a young adult author and former vagabond who once camped out in Yosemite National Park for an entire summer, an experience that inspired her debut novel Essence (Strange Chemistry, June 2014).
Her background is in zookeeping and environmental education, and she has been kicked, cornered, bitten and chased by nearly every animal she has ever loved. She currently resides in Florida, and she is now a huge fan of shooting stars, indoor plumbing and keeping both her feet planted firmly on the trail.
