Kara O'Toole Treece


Growing up in Omaha, Nebraska as an only child of parents that, between the two of them, had multiple degrees and professions (including, but not limited to: FBI, Priest, and College President), was actually cooler than I thought at the time.  But being a child consumed by wanderlust, I left as soon as the ink was dry on my scholarship. I made my way to New Orleans for college, which instilled in me a life-long love of the city, beignets, and being overly suspicious of hot dogs you can buy at 3am from a cart.

After learning a little bit about school, and a lot about life, I left New Orleans and made the decision to attend law school. I wanted to save the world, and being without any actual superpowers, it seemed like the best way to go about it. That hasn’t quite worked out as I planned, but one can always hope.

I started writing novels as a way to pass the time during the pandemic, and stem the creeping existential dread of approaching midlife. I found that I love writing, which (according to my sons) makes me an author with a lawyering problem. That description fits somehow. I also help a couple of non-profit organizations in my community do their thing - saving the world in my own small way.
