Turned onto reading at an early age–the product of bible stories given as punishment for stealing candy from a drug store–Brent Bowen devours books of all genres. And though Samson and Delilah is still one of his favorites, he would prefer to blend mysticism with archeologist canines and plasma armor.

Since then, Brent’s first paid, published story was a tweet (per word it’s a pretty good gig). He’s also co-host and producer for the Parsec award-winning podcast Adventures in Scifi Publishing, and he’s studied at the 2009 Viable Paradise XIII writer’s workshop.

You can find Brent and his clan more regularly at the blog He Says, She Says KC.

Brent lives in a Kansas City suburb with his wife, two children, a former stud Pug and a Tibetan Terrier mutt that is too smart for her own good. Learn more about Brent and his work on this site. You also can follow Brent on Twitter where he goes by the handle @splitlegend.
