J. M. Richards currently lives in the Pacific Northwest, though she’s been known to call nine different states home over the years, and consequently can no longer remember her own zip code. Once upon a time, she spent seven years living happily in Pittsburgh and still has a soft spot for the black and gold city of steel. She also graduated from College of the Ozarks in Missouri with a degree in Philosophy and Religion, which seemed like a good idea at the time.

“Just then, I noticed a cluster of the noobs ogling me. “What’s up with them?” I asked my friends in an undertone.Alan shrugged. “I think they’re working on a project or something.”“What kind of project?” I asked warily. The intense kid with glasses—I still didn’t know his name—was looking back and forth between me and a large piece of poster board with a bunch of photographs and writing on

J.M. liked a quote

“Children's reading and children's thinking are the rock-bottom base upon which this country will rise. Or not rise. In these days of tension and confusion, writers are beginning to realize that books for children have a greater potential for good or evil than any other form of literature on earth.”

“Being in love with your best friend is problematic.”
J.M. Richards, Tall, Dark Streak of Lightning

“As much as I cared about him, I wasn’t a slave to fate. I could choose to ignore my feelings, strong as they were. It would be painful, but no more so than letting myself pine for my friend.”
J.M. Richards, Tall, Dark Streak of Lightning

“If you want to call it quits, just tell me. Man up and say it to my face. Don’t just skulk around.”
J.M. Richards, Tall, Dark Streak of Lightning

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“I never understood why Clark Kent was so hell bent on keeping Lois Lane in the dark.”
Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler's Wife

“A book is really like a lover. It arranges itself in your life in a way that is beautiful.”
Maurice Sendak

“No one wants to go through life alone, fighting battles single-handedly their whole life. Not even the hardiest of heroes. That’s just a miserable existence. Everyone needs someone in their corner, right?...Even if you could,” I wrinkled my brow, “would you really want to? By all accounts, it gets lonely being your own hero.”
J.M. Richards, Tall, Dark Streak of Lightning
