Writer – Editor – Conscious reality creator – Podcaster – World Builder
Welcome to my about page. I am Muray "MJ" Blehart (blee-heart, FYI). I write and I learn things.
Allow me to share a bit about who I am and what I do.
I live in New Jersey, about 20 minutes east of Philadelphia, with my wife and 2 cats (the one pictured above with me is Thalia). Born and raised in the 'burbs of Minneapolis, MN - I moved to the East Coast for college and stayed after, living in New York state or New Jersey since the 1990s.
I have been an active participant in a worldwide medieval reenactment society for over 30 years. Through this group, I have pursued archery, court heraldry, and my favorite part – rapier combat (medieval fencing).
In this organization, I am known by the name Malcolm Bowman and have met people from all over the world. This is where the majority of my friendships have come from. I spend a couple of weekends a month at events.
At the age of 9, I wrote my first full-length sci-fi novel. It was called Wildfire, is 50 pages and illustrated (showing off that I was terrible at adding noses when drawing characters in profile).
I happily blame my parents for taking me to see Star Wars (this was 1977, so I still tend not to call it A New Hope) when I was 5. This made me fall in love with the genre, which later extended to fantasy, too.
I have read Tolkien, Eddings, Gaiman, McCaffrey, Card, Bradbury, and numerous, less well-known authors in fantasy and sci-fi.
I have published multiple novels on Amazon and am presently working on more sci-fi series. Before my wife beats me in my sleep, I also am working on completing the 3rd novel in my fantasy series, too.
The idea that consciousness creates reality – and anyone can use that to change their life – has been my passion for more than a decade. Now, I explore mindfulness, positivity, joy, and overall life lessons to gain more knowledge and experience for both myself and to share.
When all is said and done, I seek to make a positive impact on the world. I desire to share my experience and help others to gain insight into all their potential and possibility, too.
I hope you have enjoyed this peek into my life.
