Eddie Owens

Author Eddie Owensabout this book: I decided to write The Great American Novel.

That was the easy part. What came next?

I grew up reading Harold Robbins' blockbusters like "The Carpetbaggers" and "79 Park Avenue", so I used that kind of journey as a template.


It had to be a love story, that was obvious to me from the start. I wanted strong male and female characters.

My modern day Romeo and Juliet needed to face epic challenges and deal with a lot of conflict, before a final reunion.

I wanted to highlight issues concerning prison and the military.


Here's what I came up with.

Please have a read and let me know what you think.


GOING TO THE SUN

An epic coming-of-age story.

Teenage romance leads to tragedy, then prison and war.


Throw in a crime and suspense thriller for the climax, and it all came together.


Amazon reviews -

• "Owens' novel is a tour de force of a classic American genres wrapped around a pair of relatable and vivid characters."

• "A satisfying and thoughtful read peppered with commentary, surprises and rewarding twists."
