About Ralph Bowden

People have called me shiftless, perhaps because my careers have included electrical engineer in the aerospace industry, history professor, home builder, solar designer, alternative energy consultant, and technical writer/instructional designer. My writing compulsion began about 20 years ago. Other men golf, fish, carouse, watch tv sports. I write. At last count, 20 novels, 4 short story collections, and a play lurk, mostly unread, on my hard drive. I've not tried to publish anything except the story collections, and those only locally as Christmas gifts. If all goes well, I hope to publish most of my collected writing on Smashwords in the next year or two.

Imagine the dull old Lord Kelvin might have had a secret life. Bowden's book makes a great read. Characters come to life in the pages. Literate and very readable.

Marvelous historical mystery - full of intriguing characters and suspense - based on real historical figures. Bowden keeps you wondering all the way through - did he? didn't he? Nicely crafted and well written. Recommended for those who like substance as well as good storytelling.

An amazing story. History,science, romance - and as you're reading it, you feel the character's struggles and realize many of the same struggles apply today. A well-woven story, you won't want to quit reading!
