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 while happily volunteering in Ms. Millet’s primary class.
After a divorce and a whack 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, she wrote about her adventure.
Curtains are Open is about facing change…accepting it…and moving forward.
Colleen writes about living in Halifax…about places she visits and the wonderful people she meets. She writes about raising teens…one who plays hockey and attends university in Newfoundland and the other who splits her time between horseback riding and volleyball. She writes about her oldest…who’s left the nest and is finding her own way in this fabulous world!
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!
