About Dr. Jennifer Ikner Lowry

My Background



I'm just a small town girl with a big heart for Jesus! 

I was raised in the small town of Maxton, NC! Even though I moved close to the big city of Raleigh, there is no place like my hometown.

My Writing Style


I'm Southern, no doubt about it. I want that to seep through the pores of any novel I write. I desire to be authentic in my voice and stay true to the characters that the Spirit guides me to write. See, I believe with all my heart there is power in words. That power can reach nations, and I pray that my writing has that opportunity!

I believe our youth should be provided with fiction that has a riveting story that draws them in, but keeps it clean from beginning to end.

My Journey

Follow my daily Podcast!

For my 8th grade graduation, my sweet momma bought me a Brother typewriter (with the little screen) because she knew the dream in my heart! I loved to craft stories and secretly dreamed of becoming an author one day! 

From silly off to college stories to paranormal tales, I found myself escaping in the words of my favorite books (Sweet Valley and anything by Stephen King) to creating my own worlds. For years, I wrote and collected words on paper without sharing them with anyone but my family. 

I've two devotionals and a homeschooling education guide self published on Amazon. My fiction titles are all waiting eagerly to be published. I was too timid and fearful (if I am to speak the truth, and I must) to put my worlds out there. So, they hung their heads down low as I went about my life.

As a teacher, I am inspired by brilliant students each day. I watch their openness and willingness to publish. Their chance taking built me up to the courage leap of faith to send off a query for my debut novel, Hope Has Wings...and she took flight and soared. And here we are!

Now, my day has come! Thank you for coming along on this ride with me. Many blessings to you and yours!
