Marvin Wilson is here with us

I want you to welcome Marvin Wilson, who is here with us today to talk about his new book, "Owen Fiddler." These are my questions to him:

Kwame: I have never lived in the Midwest, but How do you like living in the Midwest, especially Michigan?

Marvin: It is a frozen hostile wasteland! Do not ever come here, if you value your life! Most of the waking day is spent foraging for food, fighting the elements, boring through the ice for a fish to eat. Were it not for my pact with my good friend, Nantuk, I'd never survive! LOL - Seriously, I love it here. Michigan winters are best suited for winter sports nuts, of which I am not one, but the four beautiful and distinct seasons in Michigan are often spectacular, particularly in the northern regions. I'm an out-doorsy kind of guy, love rustic camping, and although I like to travel and experience other states/countries, I'll probably keep Michigan as my place of residence for life.

Kwame: What inspired you to write Owen Fiddler?

Marvin: I'm fifty-eight years old, I've been around the block several times and back in this life with eyes, ears, heart, mind and soul wide open, and I've learned a few things that I hope to share with others. That's the primary impetus for all my writing. Not that I'm some hallowed prophet or wise man or anything close to that, far from it. I'm just a messenger delivering reminder messages that the great Masters of antiquity have instructed humanity with since time immemorial. As individuals and as a society we tend to forget the ancient truths, we get lost in our petty self-centered melodramas and lose sight of the interconnectedness of all things and beings. I try to write a darn good entertaining book that exposes these departures from spiritual veracity and provides pointers on how to right the ship. OWEN FIDDLER is about choices and consequences. It's about the knowledge of good and evil and creating Heaven or Hell for ourselves with our own free will choices.

Kwame: Was there any one person that made you think of Owen?

Marvin: (Sing along to the tune of the Beatles' "Nowhere Man") Has a selfish point of view, why he's such a fool, no clue, in't he a bit like me and you? Owen, man, please listen. You don't know what you're missing. Owen, man, your world is at your command!

Kwame: Do you see the human race "going down the drain" more, in light of this writing?

Marvin: I try to remain optimistic, I'm an optimist at heart. That's why I'm doing my little bit to try and help. I think the human race is worth salvaging, in spite of all the corruption, terrorism, racial, ethnic and religious hatred in the world. We are created in God's image. Jesus Christ Himself said, "Is it not written in your law, ye are gods?" Will the Age of Aquarious have a chance to flourish, to spread the Kingdom of Heaven out upon the earth before we blow ourselves up? Will humankind become re-enlightened, awakened from its self-estranged spiritual slumber in the depths of the dark side of the soul before it's too late? I don't know, but there sure sounds like a good book to write in those last two sentences while I'm waiting to see and pushing for the best! (smile)

Kwame: Will there be a sequel to Owen Fiddler? Maybe more about his daughter?

Marvin: OWEN FIDDLER begs for a sequel, perhaps even a series. If the book generates a large and eager readership, I'm sure I'll pen a follow-up. I could even see it being a TV sitcomdram (my word {-:>)

Kwame: Where to after this month-long blog tour?

Marvin: Well, I will continue to market Owen, of course, you can't let up as an aspiring author, but I will also get back to more writing. And reading. I write for hours a day when I'm in the zone, and I like to balance every hour of writing with an hour of reading. I learn so much from reading and analyzing the skills and styles of other writers.

Kwame: What do you see yourself doing later in 2008, early 2009?

Marvin: I'm about halfway through the writing of a third novel, and have a story idea I've started fleshing out for a fourth. Between getting through the first and second drafts of those, doing all the work it takes to edit, submit, obtain a contract for publishing, etc., I'm sure I'll be busy all year and into next. And of course, inspirations hit me all the time for more book ideas, so there'll probably be books five and six or seven simmering on some of the back burners as well.

Kwame, thank you so much for inviting me to your blog and the opportunity to share with your readers. It's been great getting to know you, and your questions were interesting and fun to compose answers to. To those who wish to obtain a copy of OWEN FIDDLER, the e-book is now available at:,, and - trade paperbacks will be out later this year, but that process takes much longer, so far about $5, it's a steal and you can read it now.

Kwame's Kommentaries, 8-17-05

Don't try to do half an hour's work in fifteen minutes. (8-17-05)

Kwame's Kommentaries, early August

(As Black People), we are constantly making history; the film just hasn't been shown, and the book hasn't been read, yet! (8-4-05)

It is better to do things now--today, than to never have gotten the chance later. (8-5-05)

They say "first come, fist served." I say, first come; first share, first experience, first LIVE! (8/4-5/05)

Form your opinions when you are young, in your teens and twenties, but don't be so dogmatic, don't be so serious. (8-5-05)
