IT ALL BEGAN WITH A GIRL

the story of Olive...

Olive Teagan is the author of the twisty, lush novels The Grind, Intangible Things, The Lying Hours, and the emotionally cutting Dirty South series. She writes acerbic and tantalizing fiction that explores human nuance, fluid morality, and the imperfection of love. All the world's a love story.

THE STORY CONTINUES...

Everything you didn't want to know about Olive Teagan: She was born during a blizzard and broke her nose during a heat wave. She doesn't get on well in moments of extreme weather crises, but she won't divorce the California coast. For refuge she turns to books or starry skies. When she received a mixology guide by mistake, she started mixing drinks for no good reason at all. Sometimes she travels in search of inspiration or interesting faces. Other times she works hard and sleeps harder—usually in the most awkward positions known to man. She loves God. In case someone important asks, Olive is diligently writing her next novel. More likely she is browsing recipes, experimenting with pigments, and working on her house in the woods.
