After serving over 20 years in the Air Force, I made the ultimate job switch: to farmer and author. It was a drastic change, not to mention a drastic pay cut! I've been writing 25+ years and have been published in a variety of media: book, newspaper, photography, and magazine. I love to write, it seems to be a passion I can't ever seem to satisfy.
It started out back in the day with the first book of the Dragonslayers Saga. Project: Dragonslayers is an MWSA award winning novel about an unlikely Special Forces team who are thrown headlong into the world of counterterrorism. The second book, Dragonslayers: Mind Games, continues the saga where the team enters the twisted world of al-Qaeda. They must find the source of a mystery explosive, or risk losing more innocent civilians to attacks. This book was selected for the MWSA summer 2011 reading list. The third book in the series is Dragonslayers: Battle Rhythm. This time it's Yemen, and the team finds out they're not invincible. Two more books in this series are slated for release: Kill Box (2013) and Critical Mass (2014 or 2015).
Also I've expanded my work in other genres. Out now is the best-selling contemporary romance, Cowboys and Olympians. You'll meet and fall in love with Leo Richards, a champion reining horse trainer, as he tries to convince himself that he can love again after his wife and unborn child were killed in a fiery car crash. He falls for Katie Shulman, a rich, stubborn woman who just doesn't like cowboys. I'm currently writing another romance titled Silks and Sand about a Kentucky horse-racing family that falls on hard times. The owner, Evan Stoddard, hopes to regain their glory by putting a big bet on an unlikely horse and rider combination—a bet that threatens to ruin his life.
If supernatural thriller/ horror appeals to you, The Hall is complete and on sale. You'll meet Marcus Bishop, wealthy Memphis book publisher; his new and terrifically eccentric best friend, Prince Mongo; along with a ghost and demons that haunt the old castle Marcus buys.
After taking a dare from a horror author friend of mine, I started work on the “Space” series. Space Crazy introduces you to Dar Meltom, a half breed alien who's had a rough life. He longs for a life in the stars, and as difficult as it is, his mother manages to give that to him. Space Junk, the second book is also completed. The third book in the series, Space Available, will be out July 2013. The final book is Space Invaded.
So far I've enjoyed working in all these genres, and have started converting some stories into screenplays. There are more things I'm working on, too numerous to mention. So keep checking my Facebook pages to see if there's anything new.
Most recently, I was given a rare distinction of placing 1st in Ron Knight's top 100 Facebook authors of 2012. He starts with 8,000 and narrows it down to 100. An honor indeed.
As always, I appreciate feedback and book reviews. I'm a small fish in a huge ocean just trying to stay afloat. I love my writing and pour heart and soul into each work I do.

Smashwords book reviews by K. Rowe
- Santa Enters the Back Door
on Dec. 12, 2011
Gee, I didn't know cookies and milk weren't the only things left out for Santa! Fun read!
- Hot Clip Barber
on Dec. 16, 2011
I've read a couple other of Whiskey's stories, and today is a very cold day in Kentucky. To say the least, this story warmed me up! I love his comparisons of things like: "Instead, a babe so smoking hot the fire department should have been camping just inside the door of this barber shop..." makes his stories fun to read and very enjoyable.
- The Temp. An Erotic Short Story.
on Jan. 29, 2012
This was a hot little read that was lots of fun. Recommended if you only have a short amount of time to enjoy; but be warned, it may make you hot and bothered!
- Mr. Pish Goes to the Farm
on June 25, 2013
A wonderful little book. Being a farmer and an author, I appreciate all the time and effort that went into it. In this day and age, children are not taught where their food comes from, other than a grocery store. We need to make sure there is another generation of farmers out there, without them, we will starve. Hopefully this book will motivate children to look farther than their grocery store when it comes to what they put in their mouths. Bravo!
