Born and raised in the mountains of East Tennessee, R.J. Harris has been writing since she could hold a pencil. The beauty of her home in the Appalachian Mountains, along with the legends, myths, and folklore of that area, is what inspires the unique plots and settings captured in her young adult fiction. In addition to her love of all things fictional, R.J. is also a freelance writer and editor, an occasional adjunct professor, and a social marketing director. When not working, R.J. can be found at home building block towers for her son to knock down, drinking coffee and watching Netflix with her husband, and trying to win the approval of her grouchy calico cat.

As  summertime approaches, life has a way of slowing down, yet accelerating at the same time. School is out, the kiddos are home, and the anticipation of the rest and relaxation of summer vacations makes us as giddy as children on Christmas Eve.


For authors who also teach, like yours truly, the summertime means it’s prep time for workshops, readings, signings, and appearances. So for those who a...
