About Ralph Bowden

Ralph Bowden has entertained himself by writing mostly fiction for almost 30 years, through and following careers as an electrical engineer in the aerospace industry, a history professor, a home builder, an alternative energy consultant, an instructional designer, and a technical writer. Twenty-six novels, four story collections, a volume of collected short fiction, and a three-act play reside, mostly unread, on his hard drive. He likes all of his word children. Realistically, some of them are probably flawed and maybe even terrible. Others might entertain readers besides himself, but Ralph hasn’t the time or ego drive to promote and sell, nor the stomach for collecting rejection letters. Self-publishing avoids all that and is quick. If somebody finds and likes what he has written, fine. If not, the world will go on (or not) just the same.

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!
