Sarah Bible is working on a college term paper when her mother, Marie, is kidnapped by a crazed
Indian shaman. The only way Sarah can get her back is with the help of a cemetery grounds
keeper with no legs called Big Shorty, who some believe is Baron Saturday — the voodoo
spirit of the dead — and Marie's boyfriend, Archie Chatto, a renegade Apache warrior who's
in El Reno Federal Penitentiary. Sarah, being a sensible girl, knows she must recruit Big
Shorty and break Archie out of prison in order to save her mother.
Then comes the hard part.
If you enjoy a terrific story well told, this is the book for you. In his first novel, John
Biggs already displays the sure hand and literary style of a seasoned writer. Fascinating
eccentric characters, a generous dose of fantasy and magic, and genuine humor make this book
an unforgettable read. Highly recommended.
~William Bernhardt, New York Times Best Selling Author
Owl Dreams is my kind of story. John T. Biggs is my new favorite author. With his razor-sharp wit,
laugh-out-loud humor, well-rounded yet wack-o characters, and skillful writing, Biggs weaves a
story dripping with action, mysticism and magic. If you like Indian witches, voodoo death gods,
shape-shifters, and spirit hummingbirds, Owl Dreams is a must read. John Biggs is a master story
teller. I suspect, much like his character, Robert Collins, Biggs listens to the messages carried
on the wind.

Howling Moon, Soldiers From the Mist, and The Rook and the Raven
In Owl Dreams, John Biggs paints colorful, quirky characters amid the Oklahoma landscape,
weaving Native American lore around them as the band of comrades move from one crises to another.
Biggs maintains humor and intensity, filling each page until the last. I recommend Owl Dreams for a fun read.
~ J. Lanthripe
I loved the rapid humor, the interactions of men and women, plus diversity of cultures, and
only-in-Oklahoma settings. The pacing was perfect, the action exciting, the insights delicious.
Biggs is a clever writer, feeding intellectually-strong comparisons and providing insider
information about institutions. It was fiction, but I learned things, and the book stimulated
me with great, understandable language. I'm a big fan now, and hoping for more books from Biggs.

John Biggs has two dilemmas: he's seen the magic that surrounds everyone and he can't stop writing
about it. We don't know if it has anything to do with the Native American culture that surrounds him,
but we wonder. There was that business with the paint. He swears it was just a smudge on his cheek he
got when doing a little touch-up around the house, but we're not so sure.
His knowledge of the criminal underworld benefitted from a part time job as a night security guard in
Chicago and his later work as a prison dentist in Lexington, Oklahoma. His familiarity with the
mystical realm is a mystery to most who know him as a pretty regular guy.
John moved to Chicago in 1968, in time for the Democratic National Convention riots, which he didn't
attend but remembers in great detail. He's written many research articles — a very bad way to
learn the craft, he says — and started writing fiction in 2001. Since then he's published dozens
of short stories and won numerous awards, including the grand prize of the 80th Annual Writer's Digest
Writing Competition for "Boy Witch."
John and his wife travel at every opportunity. He loves reading and writing to the point of fanaticism,
and spends altogether too much time in cemeteries. He won't tell us who he talks to there, but it's clear
he's got a direct line to someone — or something — that's giving him inspiration.
Owl Dreams has elements of non-erotic romance, magical realism, humor, and one Native American
cooking recipe for good measure.
