Fowler Brown grew up in Arizona, where the scorching heat quickly taught him the virtues of indoor activities like reading. His career as a novelist began at a young age, with hand-illustrated “books” that featured lots of scribbly fantasy battles and very little in the way of characters, plot, or correctly spelled words. In a way, everything that’s come since has been an attempt to improve on those early abominations.

These days, Fowler and his wife live in Massachusetts, where actual, real-life snow falls from the sky! When he’s not writing, he can usually be found reading, slaying digital monsters, or designing and running tabletop adventures to test the mettle of his friends.
