I am not sure when Friday the 13th became an obsession. I saw the first film in 1981 when cable first came to our neighborhood. I was ten years old at the time. Horror was new and scary. I loved the rush. Part II came on cable shortly after. I remember being so into it that I swear I saw someone with a hood over their head...

Summer is usually a time of travel. My work, before the pandemic, required lots of time on the road. Staying in hotels across the country and going to rodeos, concerts, and bike rallies all in the name of experiential marketing. My writing time would happen in different places whenever there was a free moment. Through all o...

The upside down… the disconnect to social media is thrilling and I feel good. I was hesitant at first, but it was the right choice to end some of the negativity in life. I backed up all the GBs of data so my pictures and posts are not held hostage to some Tron-like great deleter of bits and bytes. I feel a renewed sense of...

“A storm is coming. God, I love it when it is like this. I guess that makes me kind of dark, but I have always been a loner anyway,” so begins Lane Bowden 1973. I look forward to the day I can share this and other stories (the Rebel’s Edge series) with the world. I have been writing (and keeping the output) for over the las...

The deerskin vest on the cover of Where the Road Roams has an interesting story. I had finished the manuscript and was looking to self-publish in a very green way. The process, over a decade ago, was not as accessible as it is now, so I chose a vanity press, Wasteland Press. In a DIY spirit, I decided to create my first boo...

Starting a story is an interesting process. I feel it is always good to start in the middle of an action and learn the situation and characters going forward. One of the dangers is of getting sidetracked into events that make no difference if they are there or not. In writing, everything needs to serve the story or rather t...

I have had a realization that my YA series, Rebel’s Edge, really fits in with the troubled youth genre. When I wrote the manuscripts my goal was to recount the past in a narrative story form and out of  respect to real life to change names, combine some characters, speed up pacing, and focus on the primary friendship in the...

A time of reflection is passing slowly. I have decided to take a long social media break. Misinformation, stupidity, and tragedy unfold each day in torrents on social feeds. I feel on edge. The internet is a blessing and a curse. Its importance is in witnessing events from afar like the miracle of birth and the devastation...

The year so far has given me a lot of time to think. Writing my cyberpunk dystopian novel has been a fitting pastime, especially when I had no idea how the world would change when I outlined it last year. I have also kept busy with online classes, workouts, and explorations of streaming films and series, but something has b...

The return of the drive-in is an unexpected twist in 2020. The number one film for the last four weeks is The Wretched, a wonderful throwback monster movie playing the modern drive-in circuit. I have always had a fondness for seeing films on a big screen outdoors. There is something magical about being under the stars in my...
