David Rowell Workman Explores Life Lessons in Prose

Author David Rowell Workman has lived in Montana since 2005 and uses a prose style he first encounted from the books of Ross H. Spencer and his Chance Purdue mysteries from the '70's and '80's in his own work. Unlike Spencers' hero, Vincint Krondl is not such a hero after all, just a disillusioned furniture salesman.

The story is more in the horror genre than the mystery kind as the protaginist is hit by a bolt of lightning and now sees the people around him as monsters. The book is entitled "True People & Other Prose" and the style is mostly written in one-sentence paragraphs. Workman has also collected an array of  prose and has included these 'nuggets of life lessons' in his book.

David Rowell Workman has written several other prose collections, such as "Lemonade" and "Cracked Doors and Silent Windows" which are available on

His novels include "Life of a French Fry," "Giants" and the forthcoming mystery "The Naked Detective." He lives in Missoula, Montana with his girlfriend, three cats and a Border Collie mix named Charlo.
