#WednesdayWriters 3/9/16

This week has been a bookwork week with me updating my overworked spreadsheet and realizing just how much information it has (and even more scary, doesn’t have). What I noticed most is that a whole lot of authors have passed through this blog at one time or another, either being reviewed or part of a blog tour spotlight. Today in honor #WednesdayWriters I have randomly chosen 3 to see what they are up to now. Should be fun.


Kim Golden passed through here as part of the When Black Women Fall blog tour, with her book Maybe Baby. She has followed that up with a novella Maybe Tonight (Maybe… Book 2), which she is offering as a free download with her newsletter

1517398371-originalMichael J. Bowler is a relative newcomer to the blog. I say relative because his is among a number of review requests that got lost in the cracks of the computer malfunction that sidelined this blog for a several weeks.  Thanks for his patience, as it was only yesterday that I posted my review of his book Warrior Kids: A Tale of New Camelot (The Knight Cycle) (Volume 6). He currently promoting his book  Spinner

Michael-Bowler-4Michael J. Bowler is an award-winning author of nine novels––A Boy and His Dragon, A Matter of Time (Silver Medalist from Reader’s Favorite), Children of the Knight (Gold Award Winner in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards), Running Through A Dark Place (Bronze Award Winner in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards), There Is No Fear, And The Children Shall Lead, Once Upon A Time In America, Spinner (Literary Classics Seal of Approval; Winner YA-Hollywood Book Festival; Honorable Mention YA-San Francisco Book Festival; Bronze Medal from Readers’ Favorite), and Warrior Kids: A Tale of New Camelot––who grew up in San Rafael, California. His horror screenplay, “Healer,” was a Semi-Finalist, and his urban fantasy script, “Like A Hero,” was a Finalist in the Shriekfest Film Festival and Screenplay Competition
He majored in English and Theatre at Santa Clara University and earned a master’s in film production from Loyola Marymount University, a teaching credential in English from LMU, and another master’s in Special Education from Cal State University Dominguez Hills.
He worked as producer, writer, and/or director on several ultra-low-budget horror films, including “Fatal Images,” “Club Dead,” and “Things II,” the reviews of which are much more fun than the actual movies.
He taught high school in Hawthorne, California for twenty-five years, both in general education and to students with learning disabilities, in subjects ranging from English and Strength Training to Algebra, Biology, and Yearbook.
He has also been a volunteer Big Brother to seven different boys with the Catholic Big Brothers Big Sisters program and a thirty-year volunteer within the juvenile justice system in Los Angeles. He is a passionate advocate for the fair treatment of children and teens in California, something that is sorely lacking in this state.
He has been honored as Probation Volunteer of the Year, YMCA Volunteer of the Year, California Big Brother of the Year, and 2000 National Big Brother of the Year. The “National” honor allowed he and three of his Little Brothers to visit the White House and meet the president in the Oval Office.
He is currently outlining a sequel to Spinner.
His goal as a YA author is for teens to experience empowerment and hope; to see themselves in his diverse characters; to read about kids who face real-life challenges; and to see how kids like them can remain decent people in an indecent world.

R. Michael Philips is the author of both the Ernie Bisquets Mystery Series and the Auburn Notch Mystery Series. He current book Between Good and Evil was featured in a book blast earlier this month and is scheduled to be reviewed near the end of the month. I haven’t quite gotten to it yet, however feedback from other reviewers has whet my curiosity.


RMP_Profile_RGB_2016Michael is a classically trained artist turned mystery writer. By combining his creative talents with a passion for mysteries he conceived his first series—The Ernie Bisquets Mysteries. It introduced Ernie Bisquets, a retired London pickpocket who decided he was going to assist the London police with their most difficult cases—whether they want his help or not. Michael has completed 3 books in the series, and has plans for at least five additional books.

Michael travels a bit, especially to Great Britain, but also has a fondness for New England. He spent many winters in the shadow of the White Mountains, skiing and enjoying the beautiful countryside. Those fond memories are the backdrop now for the new Auburn Notch Mysteries being published by Sunbury Press. The main character is Sheriff Promise Flynn—an ex-metro detective who left a dark past and her big-city detective shield behind and moved to a small New England town. What follows is anything but therapeutic.

When he’s not painting or writing Michael is an avid antique collector, filling his current home—an 1894 Queen Ann Victorian he, his wife, and son are restoring—with an assortment of antiques from around the world. Michael also enjoys cooking, working in the garden, and playing in the yard with their two rescues, Beau and Pup.
