Bestselling, Award-nominated Author

J. A. Bouma

Nobody should have to read bad religious fiction—whether its cheesy plots with pat answers or misrepresentations of the Christian faith and the Bible. That’s why I want to tell compelling, propulsive stories that thrill as much as inspire, while offering a dose of insight along the way.

When not putting fingers to keyboard, I love vintage jazz vinyl, a glass of Malbec, and an epic read—preferably together. I call Grand Rapids home with my wonderfully adorable and supportive wife, two blessed kiddos, and one rambunctious boxer-pug-terrier.
