Ginny Bowman


Ginny lives within the horrific confines of suburbia with three children, one cat, and a co-writer who seems intent on sticking around. In her free time she's probably making films or writing screen plays, because life is far too short to have a 'real' job.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up about seven miles out of the nearest town, somewhere so small it barely had its own Walmart. We barely ever had a car, and there were no neighbors to speak of, so with no siblings near my age I grew up basically alone inside my head. Every show I watched, every book I read (and I read every single book the school library owned) I'd spin off into this story with me as the main character. Now, keep in mind this was the days before "fanfiction" or the internet were a thing, so I thought I was crazy! Now when I write I think of those days as practice at making my own characters and my own worlds. Or maybe I am crazy, only time will tell.
When did you first start writing?
When I was in third grade I wrote a book (complete with a table of contents and chapter headings) entitled, "Mary Jane November Mysteries" based on Nancy Drew. I probably didn't finish a whole story, but it was a start.
