At nine years old C.E. O’Grady created her first comic, Baby Buckie, which followed the many adventures of a quick talking ladies man who sported a diaper and a black bow tie – the ideal attire for a 6 month old secrete agent. Her readership of two (Mom and Dad) gave it rave reviews, and they encouraged her to continue bringing her daydreams to life.
The years of Baby Buckie faded, but C.E.’s love for stories burned on. Her preteen years were spent immersed in words. Gulliver’s Travels to The Genuine Works of Hippocrates, she read every book within in her reach. C.E. found her passion in words and soon began writing short stories.
Holding a deep interest in science, particularly in aquatic sciences, C.E. O’Grady completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Biology and Chemistry. She also began a career as a fly fishing guide and freelance writer, but never lost her obsession for fiction. While many took notes in class, C.E. found her mind twisting the facts of science into stories. Thus, birthed her fascination with discredited science and her debut novel, Soft Inheritance.
