AUTHOR

Justine Avery

Justine Avery is an award-winning author of stories large & small, for all.

Born in the American Midwest and raised all over the world, she is inherently an explorer, duly fascinated by everything around her and excitedly noting the stories that abound all around. As an avid reader of all genres, she weaves her own stories among them all. She has a predilection for writing speculative fiction and story twists and surprises she can't even predict herself.

Avery has either lived in or explored all 50 states of the union, over 36 countries, and all but one continent; she lost count after moving 30-some times before the age of 20. She's intentionally jumped out of airplanes and off the highest bungee jump in New Zealand, scuba dived unintentionally with sharks, designed websites, intranets, and technical manuals, bartered with indigenous Panamanians, welded automobile frames, observed at the Bujinkan Hombu Dojo in Noba, Japan, and masterminded prosperous internet businesses--to name a few adventures. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree that life has never required, and at age 28, she sold everything she owned and quit corporate life--and her final "job"--to freelance and travel the world as she always dreamed of. And she's never looked back.

Aside from her native English, Avery speaks a bit of Japanese and a bit more Spanish, her accent is an ever-evolving mixture of Midwestern American with notes of the Deep South and indiscriminate British vocabulary and rhythm, and she says "eh"--like the Kiwis, not the Canadians. She currently lives near Los Angeles with her husband, British film director Devon Avery, and their adored children. She writes from wherever her curiosity takes her.

Avery loves to connect with fellow readers and creatives, explorers and imaginers, and cordially invites you to say "hello"--or konnichiwa. You can find her at JustineAvery.com, on Twitter @Justine_Avery, and at Goodreads.com/JustineAvery.
