While she always wanted to be a writer, Colleen O’Dea chased a career in Information Technology…working with IBM before starting her own consulting company and teaching as a part-time professor at Mount Saint Vincent University. Eventually, Colleen packed it all in to stay at home to raise her young family.
After a divorce and a number of changes that left her head spinning, Colleen found her voice and began writing “for fun”…totally taken back that people were reading! In 2011, Colleen returned to school to study Graphic and WebDesign, graduated in 2013 and began her company, Drawbridge Creative…all the while, writing about her adventure.
Colleen writes about living in Halifax…about places she visits and the wonderful people she meets. While you can find a great many posts about her children…being a hockey mom, riding mom, volleyball and dance mom, milestone events in her family life and various travels…2019 brought about another change as all three of Colleen’s children have moved out on their own and this busy entrepreneur is left to deal with an EMPTY NEST, MENNOPAUSE, and BEING SINGLE.
Curtains are Open has always been about facing change, accepting it, and moving forward with as much grace and dignity as Colleen can muster.
Curtains are Open is about Colleen’s life…the way she sees it…surrounded by a remarkable family and a group of hilarious friends.
It’s about Living Creatively. It’s about Living the Dream!
