W.E. (Bill) Powelson hails from the deep South Texas border town of McAllen. He is currently retired (err-uhh, unemployable) and living happily in Daytona Beach, Florida, on the twelve dollars and fifteen cents he saved as a working Honky-Tonk drummer.
After a lifelong (50-year) career playing music (drums) for his supper, he is now in his golden years and has discovered that writing for the fun of it helps to keep a smile on his face. He is the author of five digital (html) e-books on the art of drumming; all of which may be viewed and studied online (or off), by going to “The Homestudy Institute of Drums” on the World Wide Web. (Just do a Google search for Bill Powelson.)

In addition to being a significant help in formatting my books for Smashwords, I enjoyed Mr. Powelson's writing style in his "Open Office through the Meatgrinder" book. I purchased Buzzard Bait, and was not disappointed. I enjoy historical fiction & grew up in the Southwest. His story setting was realistic, the characters captivating, and it gave me an insight into some of the origins of the unique form of American music.
