Thanks for stumbling across my website. My books are a mix of adult and not-yet-adult.
If you're looking for thoughtful, meaningful, emotional prose that will make your soul drench with all kinds of icky emotional stuff ... you should just hit the 'back' button and get on out of here before you get hurt. But if you're looking for fun, occasionally random, adventurous fantasy that might just make your eyes roll (sorry, gotta be honest), then stick around and read some more.
I'm in the SCBWI (they haven't kicked me out as of yet) and co-founder of The Humor Writers of America. My books are available at bookstores, on-line at Amazon/Kindle
(very inexpensive - eye wiggle) and my publisher's website.
Scroll on down and I'll introduce you to my particular brand of nonsense..
Just click any book for a buy-link.
And look for the authorgraphed, er, autographed offer at the bottom.

Bonk & Hedz ... a caveman ... and woman ... story (adult, but kids can read it)
Bonk and his mate Hedz are just an ordinary caveman and cavewoman struggling with the everyday existence that comes when one's place in the food chain isn't all that clear. Then a little caveman shows up and convinces them a neighboring tribe is amassing weapons of mass destruction in preparation for an assault on their village, and everything changes. (Same characters as the caveman short story on the left)
The Guy'd Book ... why we leave the seat ... and other stuff (adult, mostly)
A tongue in cheek training manual for women so they can understand what makes guys guys. Why we leave the toilet seat up, why we will do anything on a dare ... essentially, what makes us tick. Fun stuff previously published in the Chicago Tribune, Cynic Magazine and other places.
Brought to you in beautiful black and white by award-winning author Norm Cowie.
"A hilarious piece of work..." Scott Doornbosch, author of Basic Black
Do you want autographed books?
I'm working on making them available through Centuries and Sleuths Bookstore - I'll graffiti on them and they will take your moolah and ship them to you.
And, in the interest of fairness,here's the only negative review I've ever received.
Full disclosure, ya know.
And here's a review by BookLoons that I really love, because I think this reviewer 'gets' my stuff.
***Speaking of politicians ... okay, maybe I wasn't ... but I just gotta say this ...
Let us forge ahead into the abyss that is the financial morass caused by political asses who pretend they give a shit about the dumb people who put their asses in a position where they will have insurance for life, pensions for life and can write their own raises.***
(harsh, Norm. Yeah, I know, but it had to be said)
What are you doing all the way down here? The good stuff's straight up.
