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.

Medievalist

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. When we aren’t in the middle of a pandemic, I spend several weekends a month at events.

Fiction writer

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.

Nonfiction

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.
