About Cathleen

Writer, speaker, teacher, coach and intuitive.
cathleen-3

These are some of the hats I wear and somehow they all come together in the services I offer. My goal is to help you get your writing dreams off your iPad and out into the world.

I LOVE writing – all kinds. My first works were poems published in an anthology in the 1980s. Lately I’m working on fiction (a screenplay and novel) as that is what is calling to me now.

And that’s the creative spark, isn’t it. You get called to whatever wants you in the moment. Your writing – whether fiction, non-fiction, journaling or poetry – is your soul expression. So let’s get it out there!

I’m a former corporate executive so I have the skills and knowledge to get your organized and keep you on track. I also have a doctorate in Metaphysics which reflects my ongoing interest in the spiritual underpinnings of life. If you share that interest please take a look at the courses I offer locally in my Spiritual Living section.

I’ve taught workshops in creative writing, the power of a first chapter for fiction, how to create a successful anthology and more. My articles have been published in Canada’s ALIVE magazine and Australia’s THE SPHERE, been featured on ABC News in Green Bay, WI and quoted in the Huffington Post. And I’m a regular columnist for the numerologist.com BLOG in the career and wealth section.

You’ll find my books and CD here as well as updates on upcoming classes and workshops.

I can’t wait to see what is coming alive on your page!

jojaysonCathleen’s wealth of experience in the book publishing world was incredibly comforting, helpful and directive for me as I made my first steps to write and self-publish my book. She offers very clear advice and direction and made what originally felt like a huge mountain of fear; feel like an easy step by step process. I can’t thank Cathleen enough for her help in getting me to where I am now and couldn’t be more grateful for her seasoned experience in this complicated world of self-publishing.

virginiaclassyimageI am the first time author of a children’s book who spent a great deal of time, energy and resources looking for someone to help edit, design the layout and effectively market my story about a sweet little pug who believes that he can be friends with everyone he meets. I was completely unsuccessful in this quest for that “perfect” person until I talked with Cathleen O’Connor. I knew from our first conversation that she not only had the skills, creativity and proven track record that are critical for putting together this book and marketing it, but also had the unbridled enthusiasm about the project and its ultimate success. Cathleen is a joy to work with and a true professional.

March 1, 2018, 8:00pm - March 1, 2018, 8:00pm

Greta Sesheta, minister, actress, teacher, and author (revgreta.com), will interview Cathleen O'Connor and Anne Anthony, co-editors of The Collection: Flash Fiction for Flash Memory. This anthology was created for older adults struggling with memory loss, yet anyone who loves the art of storytelling will enjoy these 500- to 750-word pieces. We all have flash memory, especially as we move through our busy lives, with little time to read longer narratives. The co-editors are connecting with agencies and organizations across the country who provide support services to adults with memory loss to make the book available to their staff and clients. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book on launch day (March 1st) will be donated to the IWWG to support its commitment to the ancient art of storytelling. Cathleen O’Connor, Ph.D., is a writer, workshop leader, intuitive, and writing coach who helps other writers get their work out into the world. Her articles have been published in Canada’s ALIVE magazine and Australia’s THE SPHERE. She has been featured on ABC News in Green Bay, WI, and quoted in the HUFFINGTON POST. She is a regular columnist for the numerologist.com blog in the personal growth section. Cathleen offers developmental editing and copy editing services to other writers as well as self-publishing and book-layout assistance. www.cathleenoconnor.com Anne Anthony is a writer and photographer living in North Carolina. She graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Arts in English, and from Carnegie Mellon University with a Master’s in Professional Writing. Her prose, poetry, and photographs have been published in POETRY SOUTH, CRACK THE SPINE, DEAD MULE SCHOOL FOR SOUTHERN LITERATURE, LITERARY ORPHANS, NORTH CAROLINA LITERARY REVIEW, and elsewhere.
