About Nelson Lowhim

Lowhim served in the US Army as a Green Beret Engineer and graduated from Columbia University. He's been published in LA review of LA, Nine Line Anthology, and Afterwords.
Born in the bubbling cauldron of Tanzania, where he picked up his first pen at the age of two and chewed. He's progressed much since then. He wrote his first story at 5, a knockoff of all the prince-saves-princess stories he'd read at the time. Life did not rest. It took him to India, then frigid Michigan. The shock, according to parent-sources, was a character building exercise. Lowhim, however, only remembered clenched fingers trying to write. Shorts about teen angst kept him going.
Soon he was hitchhiking the mountainous American West where the outlaw locals kept his journal full of color. It wasn't long before he joined the US Army where the detritus of Babylon only furthered his literary ambitions. Iraq wasn't done with him. He would return, an engineer in 5th SFG. When he returned from this trip, he finished his first novel.
Released upon the world, he attended Columbia University. He spent his free time writing and working with other authors. He graduated and has since been penning some of the most ambitious novels this side of that Pluto rock.
Lowhim currently lives with his girlfriend in the Bronx. You can visit his blog at:

Review by: Bizq on March 23, 2018 :
Original review from goodreads:

First i would like to mention that the way it's written and the words chosen do portray the author as a veteran in the sense that you can almost smell his experience on the army. And it's becuase of this that it blends really well with the rest of things.

In this short story you meet a lusty man yearning for some erotic action, a woman's touch. From there it develops quite nicely, but the end is abrupt. Rough. It actually makes sense in this setting though, which makes this a good read.

Oh, and you also get to read a preview of another book as a bonus. Quite a nice touch.
