About the Author

Author Info

Bix Santana was born a pseudonym during summer yoga retreats in Bristol, NY in the mid-2000s, a punning derivative of bhikshatana—an unusual manifestation of the Hindu god, Siva, and who figures prominently in a cycle of ancient myths involving a band of Pine Forest Sages. Bhikshatana in Sanskrit means ‘beggar’s body’.

Bix was born in Greenville, SC in 1953. He spent his early life as a ‘military brat’ and lived widely throughout the US and for a time in Europe. He has a BA from Arizona State University; and a MA from the University of Nevada-Reno; and has spent a decade and a small fortune in the study of the wisdom and liberation teachings of South Asia collectively known as ‘yoga’.

His other self-published title, The Iron Heel—A Graphic Novel, can be ordered at http://store.bookbaby.com/book/The-Iron-Heel1. His third book to be released summer 2020 will be a collection of poetry, humor and essays titled, In Search of Lost Time.

Bix lives with a goddess and a spirit animal on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in a prime western location.
