When not helming Strider, Owen enjoys reading and creating battle scenes in all genres. His latest work of war fiction, The Rodent War of 1985, appears under “Owen’s Posts”. While the main characters in this story are modeled after our pets both past and present, our current pet rats, Bumble and Jazzmine, are not with us on this voyage. They are in the loving care of the wonderful Hachmeister/Orzano family, to whom we are extremely grateful. We have not yet seen any other rats on our journey, for which we are also extremely grateful.
