Writer, art historian, musician

Mallory M. O?Connor is a writer, an art historian, and a musician. She holds degrees in art, art history, and American history from Ohio University. For twenty years she taught art history at the University of Florida and at Santa Fe College. She is the author of two non-fiction books, Lost Cities of the Ancient Southeast and Florida?s American Heritage River, both published by the University Press of Florida. Born in Illinois and raised on a ranch on the American River in Northern California, Mallory now resides with her husband, artist John O?Connor, in Micanopy, Florida. American River: Tributaries, book one of the American River Trilogy, is her debut novel.

American River Tributaries

In the mid-1800s, three immigrant families?Irish, Mexican, and Japanese?settled along the banks of the American River in Northern California. A century later only one family remains. Artists, musicians, poets and politicians, the members of a new generation make their way through the turbulent decade of the sixties. But when an unexpected tragedy brings the three families together, they find that they are torn apart by conflicting opinions, dangerous secrets, ingrained prejudices, and their own lofty ambitions. O?Connor weaves a complex tapestry that captures the mood and resonance of a decade that began in innocence and ended in despair.
