J. A. Bouma believes nobody should have to read bad religious fiction—whether its cheesy plots with pat answers or misrepresentations of the Christian faith and the Bible. So he wants to do something about it by telling compelling, propulsive stories that thrill as much as inspire, while offering a dose of insight along the way.
When not putting fingers to keyboard, he loves vintage jazz vinyl, a glass of Malbec, and an epic read — preferably together. He lives in Grand Rapids with his wife, two kiddos, and rambunctious boxer-pug-terrier.
