Ms. O’Keefe had a long career as a teacher of young children, and took on the craft of writing as she retired. Her first book, a historical novel was based on her grandmother’s childhood. She remarks: “I began to listen to the characters. I discovered that their feelings, desires, motivations, even their voices came from somewhere within my unconscious mind, rather than from my thinking mind. I strive to remain open to the wisdom of my characters and trust that they will show me the way.” More
