DENIS O'CONNOR was born and raised in England. After retiring from a career as a psychologist, he decided to write Paw Prints in the Moonlight, fulfilling the promise he made to Toby Jug years ago. Paw Prints in the Moonlight has been translated into Japanese, Italian, and Chinese. O'Connor lives in an 18th century cottage with his wife Catherine and two Maine Coon Cats named Luis and Max. When he's not writing, he spends his time gardening, bird watching, and listening to classical music.
