J. A. White lives in New Jersey with his wife, three sons, and a hamster named Ophelia that doesn’t like him very much. When he’s not making up stories, he teaches a bunch of kids how to make up stories (along with math and science and other important stuff). He wishes dragons were real because it would be a much cooler way to get to work.

This was a good one. With his more recent books, King seems to be having more success as a mystery/suspense novelist with supernatural overtones (like John Connolly), as opposed to just a straight horror writer. I enjoyed The Outsider and the Mr. Mer ...more

“Stories are just stories," Kara said. "People used to speak ill of me all the time. Doesn't make it true." "Sometimes lies do grow in the telling," Mary said. Then she leaned forward, her gray eyes flickering in the firelight. "But in my particular case, everything you've heard is true. Every unimaginable horror happened just the way the talespinners say. It's important you know that, Kara Westfall.”
J.A. White, The Whispering Trees

“Our village has its own brand of sickness," Kara said. "Besides, I think you can find beauty anywhere if you look hard enough. Even here." "Perhaps," Mary said, "but it's a dark, diseased sort of beauty.”
J.A. White, Well of Witches

“You can use the grimoire, but you don't need it," Mary continued. "Not when it comes to animals. That is your special gift. This is true magic, not magic stolen from the pages of a spellbook. You will have to learn how to wield it. It will not be easy.”
J.A. White, Well of Witches
