A versatile writer, Deidre has taken joy in a variety of genres including science fiction, weird fiction, speculative fiction, horror, humor, children’s books, and Christian themes. She has a published children’s picture book series called The Heaven Zoo as well as a number of short stories, novelettes, novellas.
In April of 2019, she partnered with New York author and editor Ronald Linson to found a small, independent publishing house called Mannison Press, LLC. Specializing in short-form fiction, Mannison Press publishes in a wide variety of genres of varying lengths, including flash fiction, short stories, novelettes, novellas, collections, and anthologies. You can learn more about Mannison Press on their website here.
Although shifting focus to assist other authors in publication takes up a lot of her time, she still finds time to write for herself and continues to publish stories of her own. She published several times in 2021 through Mannison Press and has several projects in the works for release in 2022, including a science fiction horror novella and a heroes-and-villains humor novella.
Deidre J Owen was born in Lexington, Kentucky, but aside from a stint in the Canadian Maritimes during her 20s, she has spent a majority of her time in the Tampa Bay area in Florida. Although formerly a certified veterinary technician by trade (with a quirky history of random interests), Deidre is currently loving life with her family as an author, publisher, and work-at-home mother.
