Life on Your Own Terms

Life on Your Own Terms is a dictionary of succinct new terms to assist everyone in defining their own life and existence.

"A very delicious dictionary."—B. Bierce, Antiquity Booktionarium

Survival Guide for an Impossible World

Survival Guide for an Impossible World is a satirical quest to identify and explain how to endure within an impossible world. From being single, laughter-only diets, how not to wait for anything, and words you must learn to be successful in the workplace, Owens makes living easier for anyone.

Firsts in Sports: Winning Stories

This book takes you on a panoramic tour of sports, from the first game ever played, to the people who were the first at their positions on their fields of play. These are the insightful stories behind the excitement we see in every game, of those who managed the events, and those who played to entertain and to win. And most importantly, those who were there first.

“My good friend and great writer.”
—Jim Murray, Los Angeles Times

Sports Joys and Gifts of Play

A book about all sports, from the perspective of the athlete and the fan; one page sketches of football, the Olympics, basketball, baseball, among others.

“A most moving experience. A chance to look at and feel the competition, excitement, and pain of athletic endeavor from the very special perspective of poetry.”
—Merlin Olsen, Pro Football Hall of Fame, All-Pro Defensive Lineman, Los Angeles Rams

Under the First of Circumstance

The stories of a teacher and his high school students; a depiction of the individuals and the tensions, the reality and the conflicts that involve all.
