Author: Colleen O'Mara

Born and raised in the supposed cultural wasteland of Los Angeles, Writer Colleen O'Mara was weaned on bad ‘70s television, concrete freeways, and Barbie dolls. Leaving behind the post-modern suburb of her childhood in the San Fernando Valley, Colleen moved a decade+ ago to live beside the Pacific Ocean. She now resides in a historic Mid-Century home in Venice, California -- an "Urban Bohemia by the Sea" where she writes about her emerging community and all the funny, poignant, and powerful experiences that life in Venice brings her way.
