TAMPA, FL (PRWEB) September 17, 2004 -- Davas,
the main character, is a bright and talented journalist, although at times he exhibits behavior portrayed as a bit odd. He
often finds himself caught between his personal and professional aspirations and the buffoonery treatment he encounters with
erratic bosses, capricious acquaintances, bizarre community dignitaries, and peculiar personalities.
Randall Bowden lives in Lutz, Fla., and is the associate dean of the School of Continuing Education
at Saint Leo University where he leads the efforts of the university’s 15 continuing education centers in Florida, Georgia,
South Carolina, Virginia, and Texas. Bowden has published several papers on management and business education and is a member
of the Association for the Study of Higher Education, the American Association for Higher Education, and Delta Mu Delta National
Honor Society in Business Administration.
Bowden also held academic
and administrative positions at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, where he served as assistant professor of management and at Colorado Christian
University where he led the school of professional studies.
Bowden earned a doctorate in higher education
administration from the University of Denver, a master’s degree in communication from the University of Colorado,
and a bachelor’s degree in biblical studies from Colorado Christian College.
