Co-Host, Interviewer and Producer
Turned onto reading at an early age–the product of bible stories given as punishment for stealing candy from a drug store–Brent Bowen devours books of all genres. And though Samson and Delilah is still one of his favorites, he would prefer to blend mysticism with archeologist canines and plasma armor. Since then, Brent’s first paid, published story was a tweet, and he’s studied at the 2009 Viable Paradise XIII writer’s workshop. Learn more about Brent and his work at Split Legend.
