Biography

Calvin Bowden worked many years with juvenile delinquents, adult criminals, law enforcement officials and members of the state and federal judiciary as a probation/parole officer. During that time, he learned much about the various levels and types of criminal behavior, including those offenders classified as habitual criminals and criminal psychopaths. He witnessed the strong points and the tragic shortcomings of our state and federal criminal justice systems, along with the growing anti-social and anti-authority trends in our society. Based on real-life experiences, his novels draw attention to those things and to the many faces of evil which good people are struggling to overcome in order to preserve a life of purpose and harmony
