I’m also having trouble with the author being “Kung Fu Cowboy.”
I’ve been THE Kung Fu Cowboy here in Los Angeles since I came her in 2013. I’ve been wearing my black jeans, black long-sleeves, black vest, and black cowboy hat as a stagehand and stage performer on electric guitar while singing.
So it’s been easy to call myself, Kung Fu Cowboy. Most people did.
But five years later I am transforming into someone else. I have finished business plans to build my Shaolin Temple Kung Fu school in North Hollywood, California. I’ve developed a really cool yoga program to launch my school.
But I’m not Kung Fu Cowboy when I’m running my Kung Fu school. I’m Buddha Zhen. To confuse myself more I’m Buddha Z also. Kung Fu Cowboy is the adult version of The Hippy Coyote in American Zen. Buddha Z is the sassier version of Buddha Zhen Shen-Lang, founder of Shaolin Chi Mantis Traditional Buddhist Gongfu & Taijiquan.
I have no problem with my various identities… but what name do I stick on this book?
When I wrote the book I called myself, “Kung Fu Cowboy.” As I prepare to print the book cover and advertise it: what name do I use?
