A bit about D. Owen Powell: Born in 1946, I grew up in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio … a small city just outside of Akron.
I guess you could call me an original Baby Boomer. It was the time of change and an exciting era, when new music and industry was booming just like us—the products of our moms and dads.
Many of our fathers were home from the Second World War, and eager to begin a family.
Not continuing an education in college, my secondary education began in the rice paddies of South Vietnam. Fortunate to come out unscathed; the reception back home was unpleasant.
Not from my family, you see I lived right outside Kent, Ohio, and most will remember what transpired at Kent State University, May 4, 1970.From there I moved to south Florida … met a girl from Finland, and fell in love. Have two sons a daughter and a bunch of grand-kids.
My income was derived mostly from a small business—now of over forty years, and I took up writing as a hobby along with hypnotherapy and had a part-time practice for several years.
In retrospect, my writing hobby met too much procrastination over the decades—finally getting serious a little over eight years ago.
Most of us, have much to be told as ‛Our Story’… the behind the scenes us. There is a novel lurking in us all, and with a little embellishment, no one would really know that your fiction is three quarters fact.
Nevertheless, we… fiction writers, explore another element. That is what makes up genre fiction. How much truth is behind the veil of that word of fiction? An interesting thought, to be sure.
I wrote Sky Walkers Code Name: Operation Starlight, as if I had lived it, and in fact, I guess I had. Then, I removed it from Amazon, and wrote its prequel book 1: “Captain Jon Hunter Psychic Spy”, and Sky Walkers, re edit will be released shortly afterward.
Join me and my ‘novel’ adventures, and I will see you… out there.
