J.L. Bowen’s News

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged, but I wanted to update you on my new project. I’m currently writing a young adult novel, Remember Me,  during NaNoWriMo. This one is different for me. It’s not paranormal, but as always, it will have dark themes. My story is set in high school. Both my hero, Hunter Green, and heroine, Jazmin Juarez, are dealing with mothers who have some serious issues.
Oh, and did I mention football? Yes, my favorite sport. High school drama is wrapped up into this book. I’ll be posting snippets every week.

Remember the teacher who made you feel two inches tall? Meet Hunter’s nemesis:

Ms. Pease handed out our geometry quizzes. “Good job, Nancy,” Ms. Pease said. She smiled her thin smile and looked at Nancy through her pointed glasses. “You received a perfect score. Obviously, you studied.”
She flashed me an obviously-you-didn’t-study look. But the truth was—I did study. I studied every night, but learning Chinese would be easier than learning surface area and volume.

I can relate to Hunter. I dreaded math, still do.
