Self-Publishing Author Spotlight: David O’Conner

The self-publishing author is a special breed. Dedicated, independent writers spend many hours, many weeks and months – and often many years – doling out little pieces of themselves onto the pages of their books. This week’s Spotlight author is a great example of that dedication.

Each week, we celebrate one of our successful authors in our Self-Publishing Author Spotlight. This week Outskirts Press proudly features David O’Conner, author of four self-help books that have been helping readers handle stress, abuse, self-improvement and inspiration for years.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:David O'Conner
David O’Conner is an experienced speaker, business owner, author, and family man who writes “airplane books”. These 100-150 page books can be read in a couple of hours. He has wrapped his brand of Southern humor around messages that address increasing personal productivity and reducing stress – called O’talks. These O’talks are used in his speeches, workshops, and one-on-one coaching. They accomplish David’s desire to deliver material that conveys a positive, instructive, and retainable message, while equipping the reader/audience with the tools to overcome their challenges with confidence and independence.

Coming Through the Fog by Tami A. GoldsteinComing Through the Fog

Tami’s daughter, Heather, was diagnosed a month shy of her 13th birthday with High-Functioning Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome. She watched her daughter spiral out of control medically and educationally until she found an occupational therapist who explained how Heather’s Sensory Processing Disorder impacted the Autism. Together, mother and daughter learned from this OT how a Sensory Diet, CranioSacral Therapy, and Bio-Medical Therapies can lead to Functioning Recovery. Tami navigated the public school environment and the medical community to get the right support for Heather, who succeeded in spite of the educational discrimination. Tami shares her recommendations for other parents as she tells the story of Heather’s Coming Through the Fog.
