Don Templeton


DON TEMPLETON is the pen name for the lead writer and founder of the publishing confederation, Blue Falcon Press. He is also the author of four Executioner novels published by Gold Eagle Books (#262, #264, #266, and #276). For the last 20 or so years, Don has been under deep cover inside U.S. Special Operations living the dream and spying on his primary subject matter: soldiers. Don is from the Hemingway School of Writers - a writer has to live his story before he can genuinely write anything of value. That means jumping into Life and getting into a fight with Life. Don has the life scars to prove his bona fides. He has survived 100-plus airborne operations (most of those mass tac with the 3rd Ranger Battalion of the Iran-Contra era), the meat grinder of Special Forces selection (twice - twice is his favorite number), the Q Course where he outwitted alpha boy tab protectors with superior gray man tactics, and went to war with the best ODA the National Guard ever fielded, the Happy Reapers. This background lends volumes of authenticity to the over-the-top novels he writes because he has lived this material.

NOTICE: Don is openly looking for other crack pulp writers that want to contribute to this dark and beautiful Dream Time word painting.

Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Honestly, I hate e-reading and e-reading devices. Call me medieval. I loathe the e-book fad. I cater to it but my passion will ALWAYS be books you can physically hold and put on a shelf. I am a PAPERBACK writer, like the song by the Beatles. I'm old school. I hate Facebook and Twitter, too. E-dating? Forget it.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Colorado. Stephen King wrote his best books in Colorado. His brain turned to mush after The Dark Half. Hunter S. Thompson became a recluse in Colorado and offed himself here, too. You will notice the first two books in my series take place in Colorado. Oh, and Colorado is allegedly the new capital of the world under the New World Order. I guess Colorado has some significance to my writing persona.
