About the Author
Michael O'Leary is the author of THE RECEPTION (The Cultural Society, 2016). He started off his career in data entry, but soon left for landscaping and construction, then became a jazz record auctioneer as well as a shelver of books at the local research library, which led to a stint as a grant writer at a university where he met a titan of industry and became a ghost writer. Somewhat desperate for a stable income, O'Leary became an engineer in the nuclear power industry. When the bottom fell out, he landed in a career as a quantitative analyst in the financial services industry. All of this occurred over the course of thirty years in Chicago where he still lives. He is an editor for Flood Editions in his free time.
