A Visionary Writer

You need to learn all about J. Michael Brower, or John, to understand his creative process. He says he gets visions about his subject matter and he doesn't really know where they come from. However, John believes his writing skills are inherent because of the history of creativity in humans across the centuries.

Over the past few years, his young adult novels have touched the lives of many. John is overjoyed that the adventures of Brian Miller have reached so many, from children to adults, who seek to escape reality for a while.

If you are new to his writing, you'll find influences from both Chinese and Japanese cultures, including an interesting new spin on traditional dragons. John's star dragons are unique beings that originated in the cosmos, but now find themselves roaming the same land as Brian Miller.
