justin a. reynolds has always wanted to be a writer. The earliest documentation of this desire was recorded on a sheet of green, learn-how-to-write-with-a-jumbo-pencil ruled kindergarten paper, which can be found prominently displayed in his mom’s office. OPPOSITE OF ALWAYS, his debut novel, was an Indies Introduce Top Ten Debut, a School Library Journal Best Book of 2019, translated in 17 languages, and is being developed for film with Paramount Players. He hangs out in northeast Ohio with his family, and is probably somewhere dancing terribly, or as his sister likes to say "doing the sports". His second novel EARLY DEPARTURES will publish in September 2020.

The question WHY haunted me in the weeks after their funerals. I remember thinking, there's nothing I wouldn't do to see either of them again. Which led me to: wait, so would you be willing to do ANYTHING? And what if that meant losing someone else close to you?

These feelings, and questions, were the first threads of Opposite of Always.(less)

There are certainly moments I'd love to have back--either because they were amazing and I'd want to live in them again, if only for a few seconds, or because they weren't so good, and I've love a shot at reshaping them into something positive. That being said, I'm also content with the way time marches on, haha. I feel like otherwise I'd be rewinding everything and never move very far into the future :D(less)
