About J. L. Stowers

Science fiction author born and raised in Idaho.

For me, growing up in the desert of South Central Idaho was incredible. The desert’s subtle beauty and quiet secrets inspired a number of tales throughout my life. Spending my childhood exploring fields of lava, caves, and great fishing holes offered me priceless time to reflect and imagine. It’s where the first version of The Cost of Survival was born, among many other tales I’ve yet to tell.

I love a series you can get into, get comfortable and look forward to each episode. I fell in love with the Ardent Redux series. The characters are real and it feels genuine. Dani and her crew are simply fun to ride along with on each of their adventures and JL Stowers paints a vivid picture. Fun and enjoyable. Looking forward to Season 2 and the next adventures.
