About K. Rowe

After serving over 20 years in the Air Force, I made the ultimate job switch: to farmer and author. It was a drastic change, not to mention a drastic pay cut! I've been writing 25+ years and have been published in a variety of media: book, newspaper, photography, and magazine. I love to write, it seems to be a passion I can't ever seem to satisfy.

It started out back in the day with the first book of the Dragonslayers Saga. Project: Dragonslayers is an MWSA award winning novel about an unlikely Special Forces team who are thrown headlong into the world of counterterrorism. The second book, Dragonslayers: Mind Games, continues the saga where the team enters the twisted world of al-Qaeda. They must find the source of a mystery explosive, or risk losing more innocent civilians to attacks. This book was selected for the MWSA summer 2011 reading list. The third book in the series is Dragonslayers: Battle Rhythm. This time it's Yemen, and the team finds out they're not invincible. Two more books in this series are slated for release: Kill Box (2013) and Critical Mass (2014 or 2015).

Also I've expanded my work in other genres. Out now is the best-selling contemporary romance, Cowboys and Olympians. You'll meet and fall in love with Leo Richards, a champion reining horse trainer, as he tries to convince himself that he can love again after his wife and unborn child were killed in a fiery car crash. He falls for Katie Shulman, a rich, stubborn woman who just doesn't like cowboys. I'm currently writing another romance titled Silks and Sand about a Kentucky horse-racing family that falls on hard times. The owner, Evan Stoddard, hopes to regain their glory by putting a big bet on an unlikely horse and rider combination—a bet that threatens to ruin his life.

If supernatural thriller/ horror appeals to you, The Hall is complete and on sale. You'll meet Marcus Bishop, wealthy Memphis book publisher; his new and terrifically eccentric best friend, Prince Mongo; along with a ghost and demons that haunt the old castle Marcus buys.

After taking a dare from a horror author friend of mine, I started work on the “Space” series. Space Crazy introduces you to Dar Meltom, a half breed alien who's had a rough life. He longs for a life in the stars, and as difficult as it is, his mother manages to give that to him. Space Junk, the second book is also completed. The third book in the series, Space Available, will be out July 2013. The final book is Space Invaded.

So far I've enjoyed working in all these genres, and have started converting some stories into screenplays. There are more things I'm working on, too numerous to mention. So keep checking my Facebook pages to see if there's anything new.

Most recently, I was given a rare distinction of placing 1st in Ron Knight's top 100 Facebook authors of 2012. He starts with 8,000 and narrows it down to 100. An honor indeed.

As always, I appreciate feedback and book reviews. I'm a small fish in a huge ocean just trying to stay afloat. I love my writing and pour heart and soul into each work I do.

Review by: JL Stratton on July 22, 2014 :
Great Story and wonderful introduction to the fascinating world (or universe) of Dar Meltom. The writing was tight, the grammar proper and the story, exciting enough to keep me turning the pages to the end. I believe if one takes a chance on this first story, they will surely be motivated to purchase the other stories in the series, as I have.

Finally a low cost book written to a professional level. A great read. No ridiculous plot devices and a likeable, well developed main character. Highly recommended.

It's nice to find a good sci-fi story after the inundation of the fantasy genre by teenage vampire and angel/demon schlock. Fans of Star Trek should enjoy this.

Excellent!!! I have read a few space stories and to be honest, I get bored and have to come back another day to continue. Not Space Crazy, I read right through to the end and was upset there wasn't more. There are funny bits, serious bits and emotional bits in this book. But the best were the surprises. Read this story about Dar and as you invest your time in reading; you will notice how invested you are in finding out what comes next in his adventures. Great read, enjoyable and I'm looking forward to Book 2.

Although I have read all of the military thrillers that K.Rowe has written this was my first Sci-Fi venture and I must say I was not disappointed in the least. I found that the characters and story line were well written and maintained through out the book and reminded me of a meldeing Star Wars, Star Trek , Battle Star Gallicta and Buck Rogers and if this book is ever made into a movie it will be a block buster I assure you. In closing , rest assured that I am axiounsly awaiting her next installment and I recommend that you take advantage of this offering of a free book YOU will not be disappointed

K. Rowe is my FAVORITE writer of sci-fi! Wham! The lady knows how to spin an in and out of this world tale that is funny, sexy, intriguing, and filled with suspense and battle scenes. Dar Melton, the hero in this tale, is a young man who has been picked on because of the fact he is different: half earthling and half Satiren. Even in the outer reaches of the universe, bullies exist, and they pick on people just because they're not the same as them.

But Dar's mother hopes to change all of that and give her son a chance in an unfair world. At the young age of 17, he joins up with the crew of a space freighter and becomes a man; and a proud warrior.

That's all I can say without ruining the story for you, but if you love a great action-packed sci-fi tale, grab this story and the ones to come in the series.

Oh, yeah! It doesn't get ant better than this!
