Devon O'Brien

I have a B.A. in Semiotics from Brown University. In 2006, I graduated with honors from the Masters in Professional Writing program at the University of Southern California where I won awards for fiction, screenwriting and playwriting. My plays have been produced in Los Angeles and London. My columns and articles have appeared in The Los Angeles Times and Variety, among other publications.

Three of my essays have appeared in the top spot of creative non-fiction: the Up Front and Nostalgia columns in Vogue Magazine. One of these was selected to be in Nostalgia in Vogue, an anthology published this year by Rizzoli Press. Here I am in fine company; Margaret Atwood, Joan Didion, Patti Smith and other literary luminaries have essays in the book.

Recently, I completed a novella Of Lice and Men which was published serially, in 32 installments, on The Huffington Post. I just finished an original screenplay for an independent producer. Currently, I am at work on a memoir. I am the proud mother of two wonderful writers; Nicholas Quentin Moore graduated from Bard College in 2012 with a B.A. in Creative Writing. He begins the Hunter College MFA in Creative Writing this fall. Thomas Sargent Moore, graduated from the Individualized Honors Program (IHP) at Walter Reed Middle School and will be a senior at The Episcopal School-LA this fall.  This summer he will attend the Iowa Writers Conference for Teens.
