Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of- but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards. Robert Heinlein


Background Information

Bill Stephens wrote over 1,000 weekly wine columns for Harte-Hanks, Murdoch, and Hearst newspapers. For over 18 years he was the cliché newspaper columnist who had “The Novel” third drawer down in his desk. He finally pulled it out one day, and his debut novel, Vámonos!, is the result. His features on wine, food, travel, and outdoor appeared in Wine News, Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, Food & Wine, Chef, and Field & Stream. You can follow Bill on his Blog. "Read It And Weep" www.publishersmarketplace/members/billstephens  

 

He soon will release his third novel, Woke Up This Morning, and a collection of short stories.

 

Stephens is a graduate of The University of Texas and studied creative writing at Trinity University, San Antonio. As an avid outdoorsman he has hunted and fished from Alaska to Mexico and has ridden his Harley Davidson Motorcycle coast-to-coast, border-to-border, and more than 12,000 miles in Mexico. He lives in Texas with his wife and her critters. Visit his website

Vámonos!
C&W singer/songwriter Skeets Hollaran and best friend, piano player, Jesse Suarez, are both underachieving Austin, Texas, musicians. Skeets finds himself homeless when his soul mate, Gena Koster, kicks him out for philandering. Jesse’s landlord evicts him and threatens criminal action for his hot rent checks. They flee, on their Harley motorcycles, into the Mexican dessert. They hope for a life-changing, pivotal spiritual journey of redemption: sin seared from their souls by the desert sun, atonement, and absolution of Skeets by Gena. Instead, a riotous romp follows from the Mexican border to the small town of Tolencita where the despot El Jefe jails them and threatens their lives. As you ride along with Skeets and Jesse on this Don Quixote-esque adventure, you find (in spite of the playful tone and often thigh-slapping humor) mankind’s foibles arrayed, illegal immigration illuminated, greed uprooted and foiled, and political oppression confronted and vanquished – all without a single gunshot. Wonderful Josefina, the Mexican burro, also shows us if we are steadfast in our faith and stay the course, we can achieve our dreams, even though we might get diddled along the way.
