About the Author-
Robert “Doc” Gowdy is a graduate of the University of North Texas with a Ph.D. in Literary Criticism and Theory and an emphasis on Nineteenth-Century British literature. His specialization in literary theory is psychoanalytic criticism and theory, particularly Lacanian psychoanalysis, with further emphases on Milton and Eighteenth-Century literature. He is currently an adjunct assistant professor at Texas Woman’s University where he teaches various literature classes. His interest in writing is long standing, but aside from academic writing his first novel, Captain Bonny Morgan: The Cassandra Prophesy is his first foray into fiction. Captain Bonny Morgan is based on archetypal themes and patterns from mythology, such as fairies, goddesses, and the Hero’s Journey, and based loosely on Doc Gowdy’s active duty service in the United States Marine Corps with special emphasis on the Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean at the turn of the Eighteenth-Century.
The novel was full of action, adventure and was very erotic. The book is definitely for adults and I was happy when my daughter, Melissa asked me to review the book. She knew right away that it was not for her. I did like the plot and all of the crazy characters that were introduced in the book. The author was very creative and the writing style was great. I have to admit that the book was not for me because of all of the descriptive sex scenes that was happening throughout the book. If you are into x-rated novels then this is the book for you.
