“[Bowen’s] pacing is excellent and he has a knack for efficient evocation . . .” —The Washington Post
“Bowen is a natural when it comes to writing sports stories . . .” —Newsday
About the Author
His dad loved sports. One of Bowen’s earliest memories is watching the 1957 World Series on TV with his dad and his brothers. Bowen’s dad was his Little League coach and his brothers were his teammates in backyard football and “driveway basketball.”
When Bowen turned eighteen, he left behind his sports-happy childhood and headed to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Bowen has always loved US and world history and he made history his major in college. Bowen also loves sports history because of all the great dramas and big personalities, which is why he weaves real sports history into all of his stories.
After he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, he went to George Washington Law School in Washington, DC.
Shortly after he graduated, he met Peggy Jackson, a journalist. They got married two years later and now have two grown children. Their son is a college baseball coach and their daughter works for a nonprofit in Chicago. When they were in elementary school, Bowen coached their baseball, basketball, and soccer teams—more than thirty teams in all.
Bowen was a lawyer for many years and retired from practicing law so that he could write for kids full time. He gets to spend a lot more time writing and he gets more time to visit schools and talk with kids about his books. He also speaks at a lot more conferences and meets more cool teachers and librarians.

In "The Golden Glove," Jamie gives all the credit to his being a great baseball player to his lucky glove. It's like a lucky charm he wears around his neck. But when his luck starts to run out, suddenly Jamie has a rude awaking to a whole new world of baseball and must learn to deal with it. Wow! No body wants to be a failure, so read on.
Fred Bowen, the author, does an excellent job using a baseball platform to share some practical suggestions. It's a great down to earth story that no kid should be without. There is no such thing as luck. So people should roll up their sleeves and go to work to identify who they are, try to bolster their confidence, and develop a determination to succeed. Like in any baseball story there are hidden messages with lots of lessons to learn. I strongly recommend this book for kids of all ages and I'm Marvin P. Ferguson, author of BOYS ON THE GOLD COAST.
