Biker Fiction

Biker Fiction
May 10th 2012

Hello.  I would like to talk about two things that are dear to my heart: reading, and riding motorcycles.  In other words, Biker Fiction.  Biker fiction is a little known genre where the story revolves around people, riding motorcycles.  It is usually a cross genre, it could be romance, action adventure, thriller or any number of genres, but the central theme is motorcycles.  The Easy Rider magazine has published Biker Fiction for years.  Wild Child Publishing publishes Biker Heaven and Black Rose Writing just released my Biker Fiction novel, Thunder Road.
Thunder Road is the exciting tale of, Mike McDonald, a Persian Gulf War vet, whom after waking up from a coma, goes on the warpath against the outlaw motorcycle club that brutally killed his wife and left him for dead.  The final confrontation takes place at a cabin at the end of a lonely mountain road, known as Thunder Road.
Teachers often tell new writers to write what they know.  I have mixed feelings about this.  I believe you should write about what ever you want.  If you don’t know anything about a subject, and you want to write about it, there are three things I have to say: research, research, research.  That’s what the internet is for.  It just so happens that I have a passion for motorcycles.  For the past ten years, I have immersed myself in the biker culture, but I also like other things.  I read science fiction, action, thrillers, horror, Westerns, you name it.  If it’s a good story, I’m going along for the ride.  My writing is a mixture of these things.  My science fiction novel, Tale Spinner is available on, along with my short story collection, Monroe’s Paranormal Investigations and my new release, Thunder Road.
In celebration of Thunder Road, I am giving the first installment of my Cave Man action adventure series, Biker Heaven away for free.  Why would I do this?  Because I think that if you read the first story, you’ll want to read the rest.  You can get it at or  Here's the link to Amazon.

For those of you who buy any of my three books that are in print, Thunder Road, Tale Spinner, and Monroe’s Paranormal Investigations, send me the copy of your receipt in an email.  I will also give you the codes to download additional installments from my Cave Man action adventure series, as I stated in last months blog, but to get Biker Heaven and The Woolly Boys, you don’t have to do anything.  Just go to Smashwords and download your copy
Enough about books.  Let’s get back to motorcycles.  I ride a 2008 Harley Davidson Road glide and I also have a 2002 Triumph Bonneville America.  I love putting my face in the wind with my bros and rolling down the highway.  What I would like to know is about you.  Do you like to ride motorcycles?  If so what type of bike do you ride, or are you a passenger only?  If you don’t like motorcycles, what are you passionate about?  What is the one thing that makes you happy?  Leave a comment and let me know.  If you'd like to contact me directly, shoot me an email.  You can contact me at  As always, until next time, I’ll keep reading, writing and riding my motorcycle.
