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.

    Great read.

    'A Vow to Sophia' is the second book in the Fighter Queen saga. It takes place approximately twenty years later, and like the first, it's jam packed with action.
    The story revolves around two main characters, Johnny Lincoln and Onja Pedersen.
    Johnny is an extremely talented test pilot who works for his father. When war breaks out he immediately enlists to become a fighter pilot in the United Federation Fighter Fleet. His natural born talent and his need to prove himself make him an instant ace.
    Onja Pedersen is a refugee from a war torn planet, ravaged by decades of occupation. At the age of twelve her father manages to smuggle his beloved daughter off world, in the hope of a better life. Onja vows to avenge her family, that vow becomes her reason to live.
    When Johnny and Onja join forces as pilot and gunner, they become all but unstoppable. Their reputation grows as time and time again they beat the odds. Through their trials of battle a love develops between them, each would die for the other. It's this connection that gives the story a great edge. You feel for the two as the war envelopes them and they are forced to make sacrifices that no one ever should.
    This book has it all, epic dog fights, bitter hatreds, great friendships and a love story that truly touches the heart. I have already bought the next two in the series and if they're as good as the first two, then I won't be disappointed.
