About Kelan O’Connell...

As a young adult, Kelan O’Connell spent her summers aboard a family houseboat in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Apparently, she still harbors suspicions about those deep murky waters.
Though she’s been writing in one form or another since the age of 20, Delta Legend is Kelan’s debut Young Adult Crossover novel.
She began writing in college, creating character monologues as a way to stand out in auditions and cranking out sketch comedy. She holds a degree in Theatre Arts from San Francisco State University and has worked in the Entertainment Industry in Northern California and Los Angeles, among her many other day jobs. Kelan currently lives in Northern California with her partner, Sound Engineer/Producer Tom Size, and the spoiled pets of Camp Runamuck.

The Authors Novel: Delta Legend // Amazon | B&N
When 16-year-old Oakland California teenager, Calvin Pierce, makes a bad decision and winds up getting arrested, his mother is quick to take action. Determined not to lose a second son to the drug and gang violence of the inner city, she sends Calvin to spend the summer working for his great uncle in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. 
Stuck in the predominately-white region of agriculture and recreational boating, Calvin’s a fish out of water with a chip on his shoulder. But when severed body parts start floating to the surface, his summer of proving himself takes on new meaning. 
Something deadly is lurking in the deep, murky waterways of the Delta. Now the daunting task of containing the living incarnation of a mythical creature falls to Calvin and his ragtag posse of oddball characters.
