Why the A in my name?

I have been asked why I changed my name on the cover of my latest book

Sheriff of Starr County? The other book covers have David Bowles without

my middle initial. Why the change? There are 192 David Bowles on

Facebook. Another David Bowles in my SAR Chapter, and a Texas author

shares my name. Fortunately, the Mission, Texas author writes in different

genres. Recently we both were selected to be featured authors at the

upcoming Texas Book Festival in Austin on November 10 & 11. It caused

some head scratching for the staff of TBF. All future books will be under the

pen name of David A. Bowles. The publisher is in the process of adding the

A to the previously published books covers. More info at or
