Thank you, Marcia, for inviting me to be a part of your wonderful blog site.
A little info on myself. My name is Louis, formally Louis K. Lowy. A former firefighter, I sometimes feel as if I jumped from the fire into the frying pan when I took up writing as a means to fulfill my passion to create characters and worlds that I longed to inhabit or longed to avoid. I also play the bass guitar, but not as frequently as in the past–somethings gotta give when you take up writing.
I’m a recipient of a State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, my work has appeared in, among others, New Plains Review, The MacGuffin Magazine, The Chaffey Review, and the anthology Everything Is Broken. My first published novel, Die Laughing, is a humorously dark sci-fi adventure set in the 1950s.
My forthcoming novel, Pedal, is due to be released in the spring. It’s the story of a 49-year-old elementary school music teacher who is fired and struggles to reclaim her life back through bicycle racing. My third novel—Anatomy of A Humachine: Book 1 To Dream—is another sci-fi story, though of a complete different nature. It’s scheduled for publication in March 2016.
I’m looking forward to sharing insights, resources, and some plain, good ol’ conversation.
