AJ is a debut author with the publication of Quest for the King. She has a Master’s Degree in International Affairs from The George Washington University and has been writing and editing as an analyst for almost 20 years. Her work in progress is a fantasy novel, The Sword of Ferbandey. She is currently a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and is active in both her church and her sons' boy scout troop.
