Author John O’Hern. When not writing, teaching golf lessons at the local golf course or sneaking out for a quick nine holes, John is a regular on the local Storytelling circuit, using his natural comedic gifts to entertain. John has lived with his wife and children in Connecticut for twenty years.
John O’Hern has survived off-Broadway roles, television commercials and print ads, John married his corporately employed wife and soon became the stay-at-home-father of Max, their first born.
Almost simultaneously John the writer was born. His initial foray into writing was A Rooster in the Henhouse, an acerbic memoir based on his wife’s pregnancy experience seen through a man’s eyes. It was this attempt at memoir that evolved into his highly praised one-man off-Broadway show of the same name.
John’s next writing project was his two person play, Sweetspot Confessions of a Golfaholic, which was performed before packed houses of enthusiastic golfers in Connecticut. Sweetspot Confessions of a Golfaholic, the novel, is the off-spring of that play.
John is currently writing a memoir about growing up in the chaos of a household with eight children in contrast to his personal parenting experiences with two children of his own.
