Tim O’Mara has been teaching math and special education in the New York City public schools since 1987. He is also an author of several short stories, a novella, and the Raymond Donne mystery series.
O’Mara was inspired to create the character of Raymond Donne after visiting the homes of at-risk students from the public middle school where he was a teacher and, later, dean in a disadvantaged section of the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn. Further provoked by his many interactions with the Youth Officers of the NYPD and his brother’s cop stories over the years, O’Mara believed that a character with experience in both worlds would make a great protagonist.
Tim O’Mara lives with his family in Manhattan, where he currently teaches in a public middle school.
