All About Sam

Greetings to you pilgrim, and welcome to my website. I hope that traversing its length and breadth will fill you with joy the likes of which you have never known. Failing that, you can at least find information on my books, clips of my stand-up, and stupid blog articles I write from time to time.

In case you are looking for real information about me, let me commence writing in third person so it seems less biased.

Sam Bowring, also known by the street name ‘Medium Size Bow Wow’, is an AMAZING author based in Sydney, Australia. He has written many incredible books to overwhelming critical acclaim, such as the highly original Broken Well trilogy and the hauntingly beautiful Strange Threads duology. Also a hilarious stand-up comedian, he has been performing for twenty years, and been nominated for many impressive awards – although luckily he has never actually won anything, so his mild success never went to his head. He also designed a card game called Bedlam which is very complex and a huge commercial failure.

Okay, that should do it. Back to first person.

If you want to let me know of something or other, feel free to email me (sam at sambowring dot com), and then I will feel free to decide whether to open it or not. I probably will, but sometimes probably is a long time.

I hope you enjoy my site and thanks for dropping by!

‘youngsters will enjoy the idea of a cat facing an identity crisis, with echoes of the familiar story of sibling rivalry
between toddlers and new babies. Illustrations, in pen, ink, watercolour and pastel, show a big-eyed ginger and white cat whose
expressions evoke both sympathy and smiles. Very cute.’

This is the true story of how I was named after the family cat.

It is, however, told from the cat’s perspective, and he’s a bit miffed that a stupid little baby has basically committed identity theft against him.

Here’s the blurb:

Sam lives very happily in a tumbledown house with Jane and Ian. But when Jane and Ian bring home a baby boy, not only does the baby get all the attention – he even steals Sam’s name!
