I'm W. C.
I create things, take great comfort in Science Fiction, write, speak, read, and believe.
A bit more about me (in the third person):
Bauers is a boy-dad, speaker, believer, bibliophile, and author of children's books and science fiction. His works include the TINY BIBLE TALES, and UNBREAKABLE and INDOMITABLE (both Promise Paen novels).
Bauers' first novel, UNBREAKABLE, was an Amazon and B&N, Science Fiction & Fantasy Best Book-of-the-Month pick. His second, INDOMITABLE, was a B&N, i09, and Kirkus Best of the Month Pick. The novels feature Promise Paen - a blend of Katee Sackhoff's Starbuck meets STARSHIP TROOPERS, with a dash of Summer Glau from FIREFLY.
He lives in the Rockies with his three sons.

THE DEATH OF HUMILITY. THE RISE OF PRIDE AND PREJUDICE.
Sunday's sermon gave me a lot to think about. Am I a humble person? That was the question Gary Barkalow posed, and it stopped me in my tracks. I wanted to say, "Yes, and there's a lot of people who need a healthy does of it." Perhaps you see the problem. Continue Reading...
W.C. TALKS WITH ANNE LECKIE ABOUT ANCILLARY JUSTICE
I haven't enjoyed a book as much as ANCILLARY JUSTICE in a long time (book one in Ann Leckie's thought-provoking Imperial Radch Series). I'm delighted to interview her about her debut SF novel." Continue Reading...
W.C. TALKS WITH C.J. CHERRYH ABOUT FOREIGNER
I first read C. J. Cherryh’s Foreigner (a 1994 pub) last year, on the advice of my agent Cherry Weiner, a fellow Cherry. I know – what took me so long? Continue Reading...
