Meet the Author

John Bowers began his first “novel” 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 wasn’t 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.

    You will love this book!

    When I first read the premise of The Fighter King, I was unsure whether or not I would like the book. The concept of a war in space that almost mirrors the American civil war seemed to me, to be a stretch too far. I was wrong, not only does the book work, but it is completely convincing in its depiction of a clash of ideals. On one side, you have the brutality and racism of the Sirian confederacy, and on the other the serenity and beauty of the Vegans. In the middle is a man who must do his bit to defend Vega's innocents. That man is Oliver Lincoln III. Oliver is powered by both, revenge and guilt. This motivates him to do things that he would never have thought possible. As with all the best war stories, both true and fictional, an average man becomes a hero. This makes for an action filled, thrilling tale. If you love stories packed with more pulse racing scenes than the average Bruce Willis flick, then this book is for you!
