Hello, and welcome to my site! I am so glad you have joined me here! My name is Calye Cochran, and I am an author originally from the small town of Boise City located in the Oklahoma Panhandle. A couple of years ago I self-published my book that I wrote when I was 15 through Westbow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishing.
Since then, I have achieved a bachelor’s degree in writing from Oral Robert’s University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Now, I am living in Edmond, and pursuing my master’s degree in counseling at Southern Nazarene University, hoping to continue on to achieve my doctorate!
Let me tell you a little about me and this new site. First of all, I am a voracious reader of fiction and fantasy novels. I (obviously) love to write, but I also enjoy painting, baking, crafting, playing and listening to music, adventuring outdoors, and gaming. I am deeply interested in sports and attempt to find joy in working out, but often end up bribing myself with food to do so, which is kind of counterproductive. I am an avid OU fan as well, and I love football! BOOMER! Additionally, I am a Christian, and my works do have underlying Christian themes as my characters grow and learn how to fight the darkness both in the world and within themselves.
So, I guess you could say that I am a sort of “jack of all trades.” I am interested in many things, and I will feature the majority of those things in this blog. From book reviews, updates on my own writing journey, and to my stream of consciousness, this blog will give you some insight into who I am as well as how my adventures as an author are progressing. It is great to have you on the journey with me!
