Barry Bowe was fired from a lucrative job the day after Labor Day in 1985. That’s the day he decided to become a writer. A divorced father, he moved to the Caribbean with his two grown children and got a job teaching algebra, geometry, and trigonometry in a private school. He spent his spare time learning to write. Two years later he sold an erotic mystery to Cavalier, a men’s magazine. A year later he got a job as a sportswriter at the Virgin Islands Daily News. Working under a nurturing editor, he developed a distinctive voice and style. In time, he got his own column. And he was the first person to put the names of future NBA players Tim Duncan and Raja Bell on the sports pages. In 1990, he quit his job at the newspaper and moved to Hollywood to write a pilot for a proposed TV series that was set in the Caribbean. His son accompanied him. But the deal fell through. His son remained in the States, but he returned to the islands, unemployed. That’s when he became a freelance writer. For the next three years he wrote more than a hundred true-crime stories for the detective magazines. Which led to his first book deal: Born to Be Wild, a true-crime story about outlaw motorcycle gangs back home in Delaware County, Pa. It was published by Warner Books in 1994, became a book club selection, and was translated into German. He’s spent the last ten years ghostwriting non-fiction books. Now he’s trying his hand at fiction. Stosh Wadzinski’s Poetic Justice is the first of a trilogy he’s writing about his ‘hood: Delaware County. Which is where he currently calls home. His son and grandson live in adjacent Chester County. His daughter and granddaughter still live on the island of St. Croix. While living in the islands he became an amateur triathlete, but retired from active competition five years ago. He’s a Philadelphia sports fan and a thoroughbred horseracing aficionado. He’s second generation Polish-American.
