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.

“And now I realize---so what if I write scary stories? I might hurt someone with nouns and adjectives, but I would never hurt someone for real.”
J.A. White, Nightbooks

“Why destroy the World when you can watch the World destroy itself?”
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
