The O.C. Writers Story
After the excitement and camaraderie of NaNoWriMo in 2012 our founder, DeAnna Cameron, went looking for a local community of writers to link pens with. Although there are many stellar writing groups in the area, she couldn’t find one that was, in the words of Goldie Locks, just right. She did what all entrepreneurial minded people do and started one. It began as a humble Facebook Group and small group of writers who attended a Write-in at Panera Restaurant in Lake Forest.
In April of 2016 DeAnna passed the baton to founding member, Greta Boris. Greta immediately enlisted the aid of Megan Haskell, who came on as Program Director in May of 2016.
Since that time, O.C. Writers has grown to over 1,000 members with write-ins, round table discussions, special events, and workshops meeting all over the county. To see our updated calendar of events click here.
Who are we?
Greta Boris is the author of A Margin of Lust, The Scent of Wrath, and The Sanctity of Sloth, the first three books in The 7 Deadly Sins. Ordinary women. Unexpected Evil. Taut psychological thrillers that expose the dark side of sunny Southern California.
She’s a popular conference speaker and the Amazon Kindle bestselling nonfiction author of The Wine and Chocolate Workout – Sip, Savor, and Strengthen for a Healthier Life. And co-author with Megan Haskell of PUBLISH: Take Charge of Your Author Career.
You can visit her at http://gretaboris.com. She describes her work (and her life) as an O.C. housewife meets Dante’s Inferno.
A stay-at-home-mom who prefers a good story over doing the dishes, she didn’t find her inner fairy-tale godmother until she worked as a number cruncher in a big accounting firm. An hour long commute and the need for a mobile creative outlet combined to create a passionate indie author. Megan is currently editing Sanyare: The Heir Apparent (Book 2 of The Sanyare Chronicles), due fall 2016.
We’re so thankful for her brilliant left-brain!
