A.J. Compton wants a lot of things;

To write books that make you think and feel deeply.

To make you ugly cry and cry with laughter. In the same book.

To write stories that make you anti-social and have you staying up late to finish them.

To show that life can be cruel and difficult, but it can also be incredibly beautiful and worthwhile.

And what A.J. really wants, is to write books that make you remember why you love to read.

AJ knows better than most that we don't always get what we want in life, but is going to give it a damn good try ;)
