About R.M. Lowery

Author of the Jakob Larsen Mysteries

My name is R.M. Lowery and I’m a writer of crime, mystery, and noir fiction. I also drink a lot of coffee, typically while writing.

I have been a storyteller most of my life, and have been writing professionally for more than twenty years. I began my professional writing career as a business writer—mostly writing business plans, sales letters, and website copy. I was then lucky enough to become a journalist and write nearly every day. Along the way, I discovered a love for fiction writing and started penning short stories and novels.

I wrote my first novel in 2006. It is now locked safely away where no one will be subjected to its dreadfulness. But I took what I learned from the experience and began work on other novels. 

Music has always played an important role in my life as well. I play the guitar and drums, but my favorite instrument is the bass guitar, which I’ve been playing since I was twelve. Music has allowed me the opportunity to compose, produce, and write several songs, and I’ve played in bands, performed on albums, co-produced records, composed orchestral pieces, and accompanied other (far better) musicians on stage.

But words are my passion. I can’t stay away from writing. I’m currently working on the release of We Kill Our Own, the second book in the Jakob Larsen Mysteries. The fist book, The Gentle Slope is available now in paperback and on all popular ebook platforms.
