About the author (2010)

John Bowers began his first ânovelâ at age 13. It took him nine months and was only 30,000 words, but he finished it. Before he graduated high school, he wrote four more. His teachers were convinced he was the next Hemingway, but it wasnât to be.Bowers was raised in a religious cult. Cults suppress creativity, demanding obedience and conformity. Though he wrote several more novels for fun, he never published them, and by the age of 30 he gave up writing entirely.At age 44 he broke out of the cult, rediscovered his dream, and began writing again. He wrote a juvenile adventure for his children, and then began a science fiction novel. That novel became the e-book, A Vow to Sophia. the first of the Fighter Queen saga. He followed it with The Fighter Queen.and The Fighter King, which is actually the first book chronologically. He's currently working with us on Star Marine, which takes place (and somewhat parallels) between Vow and Fighter Queen.Bowers is married and lives in California with his wife and three adult children. He is a computer programmer by profession, but a Born Novelist by birth.
