Allan Dowell


I've been a pipefitter, gasfitter, steamfitter, foreman, superintendent, estimator, project manager, and instructor, but most of all I've just been a blue collar guy trying to make a living. My dad was a craftsman and so were both my grandfathers. Even my great grandfathers and great uncles were boatwrights and farmers. The animals and characters I weave into my stories I've known, maybe not in the exact same context I've presented them, but sometime during my life's travels I've run across them and I am grateful for each and every one of those encounters.

I have enjoyed writing stories for many years and only recently considered publishing. Smashwords is a great platform. I humbly thank you for taking the time to read my e-books. Available on Adult only - removal of prude filter required for access.
