offbeat, surreal fiction and poetry
born in the Midwest, lives in Maryland
"(Pete O'Brien's The Loose Purple Tie: 3 Novellas is) an original, mind-bending, and surreal exploration of creativity. . . . quirky, fresh language . . . at times dreamlinke and poetic. . . . playful humor . . . utterly unpredictable surprises . . . . gems of insight and wisdom woven into the stories. . . ."
-Laura Resau, Author of What the Moon Saw

"O'Brien's writing is a marvel of style, a fountain of whimsy, intimate and sly, plain-spoken yet always suprising - you can never tell where any sentence will go - occasionally harrowing but consistently laugh-out-loud funny."
