Pen-wielder with a license to thrill

I’m Kristian Bowes, and I write science fantasy for young adults.

Personal Life

I grew up in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, and currently live with my family in San Antonio, New Mexico, USA. I have a two-and-a-half-year-old son, a wife, a dog, two cats, and a betta fish.

Education and Profession

I graduated from the University of Guelph with a B.A. in English and am currently finishing my M.A. thesis at Trent University, which required summer studies in Medieval Latin at the University of Toronto.  I have taught college writing to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) students for the past three years.


When I’m not reading or writing, I spend time outdoors.  We grow some of our own food and spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  I’ve recently taken up yoga and hiking.
