My name is Cookie O’Gorman. I write YA books filled with humor and heart for the nerd in all of us. I was born and raised in the South, so small towns are in my heart and in my books. Unfortunately, my sexy Southern drawl never appeared–but neither did my letter to Hogwarts, and I still check the mail every day just in case.
I love dancing, Asian dramas, music, writing and reading.
Some of my favorite people can be found in books (Anne Shirley, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Professor Snape, Jane Eyre, Eleanor and Park…the list goes on). At the end of a great read, I feel like I truly know the characters, and I hope to give readers the same experience with each of my books. My goal: Give my readers a moment to laugh, to sigh, to gasp, to smile, to escape, and (hopefully) introduce them to some of their favorite people.
Fiery first kisses, snappy dialogue, smart girls, swoonworthy guys and unbreakable friendships are featured in each of my books. If you’re a fan of the dork, the weird, and the awkward…well, I’m pleased to meet you. Hope you’ll check out my books and enjoy your stay at The Cookie Jar!
