About R. B. Baxter

I've worked in film and television production for much of my working life and I've found over time that regardless of whatever you're trying to present - it's always about the story.

The Owen stories are reflections of my life growing up in a rural town (and yes... we really were that innocent). It was a long time ago - different values, different ideals, but life was what you made it and things got done. No cell phones, no Facebook - you just got on with it and life was a whole lot more creative.

Please read my stories and if you like them, then leave a comment. If you don't, no problem - there's plenty of stuff on this wonderful website and I'm sure you'll find something more to your liking. Either way, thanks for dropping by.
