Bio

I was in the hospital for severe pain in the abdomen, vomiting and diarrhea at the same time that later turned into vomiting and bleeding blood. Also on Flagyl 500 3 times and Cipro 500 2x a day for 14 days. On my 4th day and bioflagyl.com became a lifesaver!

Jason Bovberg is the author of the Blood trilogy—Blood Red, Draw Blood, and Blood Dawn—as well as The Naked Dame, a throwback pulp noir novel. He is editor/publisher of Dark Highway Press, which published the controversial, erotic fairy tale Santa Steps Out and the weird western anthology Skull Full of Spurs. He lives in Fort Collins, Colorado, with his wife Barb and his daughters Harper and Sophie.
