Owen Minter wrote his first story, THE ADVENTURES OF INK MAN, when he was in the sixth grade. He then drifted away from writing, spending his time playing football, singing, and creating art. A brief flutter occurred when his poem, FINALLY ALONE, was published in THE GARNET, the literary magazine of his alma mater, Hampden-Sydney College. A study abroad program in England rekindled his love of stories.
After a brief time in banking, Owen was hired by a small company in Charlotte that specializes in storage systems. He joined the ownership group of the company and watched it grow from just three offices in North Carolina to 18 locations in 9 states.
He designed and planted two formal gardens, then began a drawing inspired by the Arthurian legend. From this drawing, Owen began to write his first book, THE SHROUDED SWORD, a story of adventure sparked by ancient magic and time travel. When he’s not writing, Owen makes paintings with a leaf blower, reads, and enjoys coaching Special Olympics Athletics.
Who knows, he might just start noodling around with a new story about Ink Man!
Owen's first full-length novel, THE SHROUDED SWORD is out now.
