When I’m not busy writing op-eds about politics, science, e-cars, or human nature, I’m busy writing what I love to read, fiction with some real meat on its bones. More than anything, I love good contemporary earthbound techno-thrillers and sci-fi. So I write what I call literary techno-thrillers. All my novels wrestle with the big questions of life. Who are we? What are we? Why are we? This comes out in the form of genre-bending metaphysical threads that are woven through my books.
You can find many articles written about my work in newspapers and magazines. In a 2014 article Publisher’s Weekly labeled me as one of the “Writers Who Rocked Self-Publishing” and reported how my books “exploded” on Amazon (their words, not mine). Prior to that Publisher’s Weekly also did a full page interview of me: “The World has Completely Changed.”
I have been awarded starred reviews for my novels from Publishers Weekly as well as high praise from many other book review publications. I have also written for national computer magazines, founded two high technology corporations, worked as a scientist and engineer for over 35 years, and am the inventor of an advanced electric car system. I was also a short order cook for I-Hop, flipped burgers at McDonald’s, and delivered Chicken Delight. All of those careers have been behind me now for many years since I became a full-time storyteller, a catcher of dreams. Thank you for reading my stories and making all this possible.
I have lived more than one life during this one life and awoken into many before. I have truly led an epic life. I have been the luckiest man alive and the saddest man alive. I have had two great loves, two great chapters. My first wife, Mazelle, and my second wife, Dana. I love them both with all my heart.
After seventeen years, I lost Mazelle, my best friend, my guardian angel, at far too young an age to pancreatic cancer. We were living in New Mexico at the time and traveled from one coast to the other, seeking a cure. In Los Angeles, we found one of the best oncologists in the world. In Philadelphia, we found one of the best surgeons. In the end, it was not meant to be. We tried so hard and lost so hard and were broken so hard. I in my heart, and she in her body.
Here is a biography written by Mazelle not long after my first bestseller, many years before cancer stole her away.
At 3 years old, he made spaceships out of his parents’ discarded moving boxes and pretended he was flying. By 4, he’d built motorized dinosaur models that walked. By kindergarten, he was taking robots apart and building them into other creations.
By the ripe old age of 8, he’d moved into making “future-predicting” computers. Engineered with a large box, electric motors mounted on the front, big tape wheels mounted on electric motors so they would spin and the tape would move, tons of little flashing computer lights, and a tape loop with computer sounds on it, his computer would allow his patrons a.k.a. parents to pay to ask “future-predicting” questions. After a certain amount of flashing lights, sound effects, and time had elapsed, he would drop an answer on a card down a metal chute, a castoff part from his sister’s Betty Crocker’s Kitchen.
Thus are the humble but extraordinarily resourceful and creative beginnings of Kevin Bohacz, founder and President of CPrompt. Educated as a physicist, by age 21, he’d designed and applied for a patent on an electric car. His electric car system has yet to be replicated in efficiency and simplicity. Kevin continued with his unquenchable thirst for creating cutting-edge technology and inventions, utilizing advanced engineering and creating custom software and hardware solutions for clients.
At the dawn of microprocessors, as an electrical engineer, he designed early hardware and software microprocessor systems. His career evolved with the birth of the personal computer revolution and with the emergence of the internet. He foresaw the web revolution and was a first-mover in e-commerce, developing an early e-commerce system Sendsafe that continues as an innovator today.
In 1994 Dream Dancers was published while Kevin was living in Los Angeles. This was his first and some consider his best novel.
In 1994, he relocated his company to Dallas, Texas to take advantage of the web-broadcasting potential of the Central United States (and to find his bride). Over the years, happily in love, he wrote several more novels, the second of which became his first bestseller, Immortality.
After losing Mazelle, I returned to our home where I lived for years as a young widower. Eventually, I sold our home and began wandering with a broken heart, looking for the home I had lost. I put everything I owned in storage and started traveling up and down the California coast, staying in furnished oceanfront rentals for a month at a time, searching for the ideal place to dream and write. I guess it was my personal version of Eat, Pray, Love.
I eventually ended up renting a small house on an oceanside cliff in Santa Cruz for a year. I could look out my living room window and see whales breaching in Monterey Bay. On the opposite coast was the Cannery Row that Steinbeck wrote about. I could walk to the edge of that cliff and see seals sunbathing on the rocky shoreline as waves ebbed and flowed. It was in Santa Cruz that I found my second wife, Dana, and began my second life.
In that same year in Santa Cruz, the sequel to my first bestseller was published and immediately became a #1 bestseller and the #1 hottest techno-thriller and sci-fi on Amazon. Lifted by its sequel, Immortality staged a comeback and achieved its best sales ever. So, I had two bestsellers at the same time, and I was dating the woman I would marry a few years later.
Where am I now? I was born in Manhattan, in the city that never sleeps, and have literally lived all over the country, from our largest cities such as New York and Los Angeles to small seaside towns such as Santa Cruz and Redondo Beach.
I can currently be found dreaming and writing in the Boston area, absorbing New England charm while marveling at my wife, who is an amazing artist, choreographer, dancer, and teacher at schools of the arts. If I could only feel things half as strongly as she does…
