Raised in Central Texas, David Mark Brown learned to ride horses at a young age. Then learned to hate them after a disastrous attempt to impress a girlfriend. He was five.

Turning instead to a life of poetry and prose he eventually migrated north to the University of Montana (the Berkeley of the Rockies) and became the Redneck Granola.

Falling in love a chainsaw wielding mountain woman forced him to reconsider his chosen career path--Hemingway on a sailboat. Instead he illuminated the path of life to college students as a spiritual guide for over a dozen years while his wife (now a pharmacist) squirreled away enough acorns for David to embrace the sultry world of commercial fiction.

Nothing to see here. Keep moving. Nothing we haven’t all seen before. Rubbernecking won’t do you any good.


Okay, once a year I come out of my writing/publishing/authorpreneur cave to look around for my shadow and blog about what I see. Well folks, I see another year of the same. Looking back to last year’s post my predictions were clearly too forward leaning. I got ahead of myself. Call it enthu...

Blood Vines (Literature & Fiction)
6 chapters   —   updated Sep 08, 2010 03:52PM
Description: Pastor Joseph King has suffered from insomnia since returning from the Korean War. His early morning routine of push-ups and smoking a Lucky Strike may not sit well with his new Southern Baptist congregation who expects the status quo, but King is more interested in hearing the mysterious voice of God whom he believes is calling him to do the unthinkable. Blood Vines, both Southern gothic and darkly inspirational, explores an East Texas culture thick with racism and religion where one family becomes the crossroads of both angels and demons.
Falling Over (Poetry)

“A man that knows how to be a friend will always find a friend when he needs one.”
David Mark Brown, Desert Gods

“It seemed fitting that the sheriff would be more concerned about his precious toys than about stomping out a terrible evil.”
David Mark Brown, Fistful of Reefer

“What if the hunting party is not just hunting El Chupacabra?” Muddy nodded. “You mean what if they are after us.” “They may accuse us of stealing goats. They may be angry or jealous of the land. They will not need good reason, especially if empowered by the law. My father taught me well that the law is a false god to many. And the ranger —” “He is trouble.” Nena continued, “If he is anything like los rinches in Chancho’s stories, yes, he is trouble.”

No worries, I think others felt the same. Time is hard to allocate wisely. I have tried to use it well. (I've definitely stayed busy.)
