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.

“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.”
