Renee O'Connor has a new dog. She posted this photo on Instagram on 13 September saying "The new member of our family has been given the name Chewy. Pretty well fits his favorite activity. Thank you @utahhumane for your dedication. Thank you @fanxsaltlake for helping me get him home!" (O'Connor was a guest at FanX in Salt Lake City earlier this month.)



O'Connor stars as Shannon in the science fiction film WATCH THE SKY, in which two young brothers, trying to capture amateur video of outer space, find themselves in harm's way when a science experiment becomes a day filled with unearthly events. Miracle Laurie (DOLLHOUSE) is also in the cast. WATCH THE SKY is available on iTunes, Amazon Video, Xbox, Vudu, Fandango, and Google Play.

Renee O'Connor and her two children, Miles and Iris

Renée O'Connor is among the celebrities included in Chef Ellamarie Fortenbach's new book, COOKING WITH ELLAMARIE, CELEBRITIES & KIDS. Fortenback tweeted a photo (below) of O'Connor and her two children, saying "Renee O'Connor is always a warrior and such a wonderful delight. Are you a fan of Eggs Mornay, like Renee and family?" The book can be ordered from Fortenback's website ($35).


The lead story in the new book Women and Middlehood - Halfway Up the Mountain by Jane Treat and Nancy Geha is Renée O'Connor's account of her 1996 Kilimanjaro climb. The book can be purchased online from the authors' website for $19 (paperback), and the authors will autograph the book for you and among the optional free audio stories available with the purchase is O'Connor's To the Roof of Africa read by Jane Treat. They describe the subject of the book this way: Middlehood women – from 40 to 65 – are in a powerful and rich time of life, but we are also struggling to come to grips with the changes going on within us. These contradictory feelings are brought on by both growing strengths and the waning of familiar ways of life. It often feels like climbing a mountain.


Cheyne Curry

Cheyne Curry (author of Clandestine and The Tropic of Hunter) has posted a bit of fan fiction involving Renée O'Connor's character in Dean Teaster's Ghost Town. It's called Aces and Eights (The Ballad of Little Jack) and is "The story of Little Jack as seen through the crystal blue eyes of Madame Birdie?s prettiest prostitute."


"There are moments when you are acting when you have no separation from the character, and of course the goal is to have that all the time. I think it may be easier on some levels to do the theater because you can sustain this feeling longer without breaking in and out. I love these heightened moments in any capacity I can get them."
