Shared love of books brought Nick and Tara O'Riley together-they met while working at Borders Books and Music.
With "Boomish K. Sullivan and the Magic Pancake Pan", the writing duo breathes to life a story that teaches children the importance of friendship and responsibility, through a silly sense of humor and lighthearted pace. Amid a market saturated with children's literature trending toward darker themes and moods, the O'Rileys set out to go against the grain and celebrate the only time in one's life to be truly silly: childhood.
Nick has a bachelor's in print journalism. Tara has a master's in educational psychology. This is the O'Rileys' first writing collaboration, but not their first experience sharing with their children the magic that a good story can deliver.
They live in Northern California, with their three children, two dogs, and a cat.
