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: Taabia Dupree on Sep. 05, 2011 :
I'll Be Honest, I'm not really into horses. But I just adore Butch and Essie, lol. Essie being such a diva and Butch, well he has a personality of a cocky male =)

I enjoyed the main characters hot scenes; one in particular, them almost getting caught in the stall.

I wanted more interaction with the main characters at the beginning, but K.Rowe made up for it as the story progressed.

GREAT JOB !

I thought this book was great.I enjoyed the storyline very much and the way Katie and Leo's relationship evolved couldn't have been written any better.I was also happy to see the character of Katie change from a spoiled rich girl into a more humble,caring person.

As a habit I am into Westerns(Louis L'Amourin particular)but when the Author who is a friend of my suggested this book to me I thought what the heck I'll buy it for my wife because she would enjoy it, little did I know that when I went to glance at it that I would be hooked, but hooked I was,I found this book to be highly enjoyable and hard to lay down once I started, the story line was quite easy for me to follow in that every thing that it talked about, location wise I could identify with, haveing raised and trained quarter horses,worked cattle and gone to Drassage and Hunter class shows,I have now found myself in the position of waiting with great anticaption for her next romance novella which she is currently working on and all this comes from an old hard nosed cowboy and if your smart you'll try it, Happy reading and Happy trails.

Overall, this book was a good read. I did feel that the characters could have been developed more (I really couldn't get enough!), and also the POV switches had me confused at times. I recommend this book!

This story has widened my taste to the romance genre. A great tale with fascinating characters, dialogue and of course... romance. I recommend this novella to anyone.
