Who the heck is this guy?
Glad you asked that question! My name is Louis. Officially, Louis K. Lowy. A former firefighter, I am the recipient of the Florida Invidual Artist Award and received my MFA in creative writing at Florida International University.
My stories have appeared in, among others, New Plains Review, Pushing Out the Boat, The MacGuffin Magazine and The Chaffey Review. My humor poem “Poetry Workshop (Mary had a little lamb)" was runner-up of the 2009 Winning Writers Wergle Flomp Poetry Contest.
My first published novel, Die Laughing, is a humorously dark sci-fi adventure set in the 1950's of flying saucers, communist paranoia and live television. Check out my Die Laughing page for information and a quick video trailer. In the trailer you'll see The Blob, Elvis Presley, and Hedda Hopper. How's that for a trio?
Currently, I am writing my seventh novel. Besides writing, I play bass guitar.
My favorite bass to play is my 1970's Fender Precision. My most well known band was Hemlock, which had the dance hits “Disco Break” "Drive Me Crazy" and “Body Rhythm.” I live in Miami Lakes, FL with my wife. We have a son in Seattle who is studying Asian Literature, a daughter who is also in Seattle doing wonderful work for United Way. We live with our spoiled Yorkie, KC.

Pedal is the story of a 49-year-old elementary school music teacher who is fired and struggles to reclaim her life back through bicycle racing. More than a sports book, Pedal is a contemporary family drama based around the theme of daring to change and how ordinary people handle life’s turning points. For information check out the Pedal page.
Latest Interviews: On my (oh so secret) Interview Page I discuss with a host of wonderful people everything from my latest books to my writing influences to what I like on my french fries. (Kidding on that last one - it's ketchup.)
