About Me

Marita Fowler began her literary career writing a comedic action series, titled THE FAT ADVENTURE SERIES. She grew up in rural Tennessee and drew from her small town upbringing to craft FAT ASSASSINS and FAT BODYGUARDS. However, she has recently tapped into her darker muse and released the first book (titled ADDERWALD) in the ANAGENESIS SERIES - a steampunk, post-apocalyptic, zombie series.

When did you know you wanted to be a writer? Like many authors, I’ve had a love affair with books from a young age. I wrote short stories during my school years, but never concentrated my energy into a novel. I spent my early career years fine tuning my technical writing skills, while constantly thinking about books and characters. 

This is actually the third book I started before finding characters and a storyline that flowed easily from my fingertips. I wasn’t ready for those other ideas yet, so I shelved them until my brain is ready to cooperate. 

Once I wrote the first piece of dialogue between Shasta and Ulyssa, I was hooked. Everything picked up momentum and I saw characters, conversations and stories everywhere.
If you gravitate to the journal section of a bookstore or collect notebooks like a foraging squirrel - your inner writer is waiting to be unleashed. 
Here's my stack of journals - the pink one is for Fat Spies.
