MY TRANSFORMATION AS AN AUTHOR BY LOUIS BODNAR I’ll begin my July blog/essay by quoting the ending of my January 24, 2021, one: “Final words for January, 2021: I’ve left public school education behind! As I’ve left the year 2020 behind, I wanted to thank all my family, friends and, especially, all my readers that made El Paso Sunrise, a Novel, a 5-State regional Barnes & Noble Bestseller – and, hopefully, a worldwide success...

“While this book is a work of fiction, rather than the fictional character in this novel, Eddie Egen, laying in an upside-down police cruiser after the attempt to kill him failed as he drove back to El Paso, as detailed in Chapter 14, it was me.” This paragraph – the introductory paragraph on the home page of my website - is how my late-life and brand-new career as an author/novelist began. That...

For this our 5th Anniversary, here is my concept of the spirit and essence of relationships on this planet as the Good Lord’s intended them to be. It is my One, Two, Three, Four of Intimate Human Relationships, now simplified to 1+2+3+4 = 4LIFE!!!! I first gave this presentation 44 years ago in 1976 after being in law practice for five years in Oklahoma City. I was 31 years old. It was to a large group...

Who is Steven Vandorol? This post will answer that question to begin the Steven Vandorol Saga. Steven Vandorol is a fictitious character in El Paso Sunrise, a Novel, that was published on September 24, 2019, by Morgan James Publishing (New York–London–Nashville–Vancouver-Melbourne), then became and is now available worldwide through Ingram Publishing Service, Morgan James Publishing’s exclusive distribution partner!! About El Paso Sunrise, a Novel “Kill him,” the hushed gravelly, almost hoarse voice said on the speaker to the four...

I just wanted to let all my family, friends and readers know that my continuation novel, El Paso Sunset, that had been previously accepted for publication and worldwide release, publication and launch this coming fall, 2020, has unfortunately been delayed due to the pandemic and will now be launched in the Spring of 2021, on April 13th , 2021!! I’m insisting that the launch of El Paso Sunset, the continuation novel,...

In my last POST…I'm now calling them POSTs since I didn't like blogs (sounded like throw-ups) or essays (too formal) until my web designer, Matt called them what I should have been calling them in the first place! Anyway, in my last - POST - which was ABOUT THE TWO - SO THIS ONE IS ABOUT THREE of ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR OF HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS!! Again, just re-reading that title, it's confusing to me, so it’s probably...
