Justine Avery is the #1 international bestselling and award-winning author of stories large and small for all. Born in the American Midwest and raised all over the world, she is inherently an explorer, duly fascinated by everything around her and excitedly noting the stories that abound all around. As an avid reader of all genres, she weaves her own stories among them all. She has a predilection for writing speculative fiction and story twists and surprises she can’t even predict herself.

Avery has either lived in or explored all 50 states of the union, over 36 countries, and all but one continent; she lost count after moving 30-some times before the age of 20. She’s intentionally jumped out of airplanes and off the highest bungee jump in Ne

“Within twenty-four hours after man's most memorable and monumental encounter with an alien species, Nathan deduced that he must've imagined it—because the Internet said so.”
Justine Avery, Earth Inherited: A Short Tale of Planetary Plague & Astronomical Affliction

“There is no ‘time,’ only the infinite now.”
Justine Avery, The One Apart

“As the black of night transformed into the distinct deep blue of morning twilight, Trevor traded the well-worn accoutrements of a humble adult life for the highly specialized gear of a weekend warrior, giddily exchanging the daily grind for the enthrallment of the almighty Saturday.  Almost enough to make a grown man weep in gratitude.”
Justine Avery, The End: A Novelette of Haunting Omens & Harrowing Discovery

“Whatever your favorite genre is, you can probably trace your love for it back to one single book that really moved you.”
David Farland, Drawing on the Power of Resonance in Writing

“On the page, punctuation performs its grammatical function, but in the mind of the reader it does more than that. It tells the reader how to hum the tune.”
Lynne Truss, Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation

“I'd like to emphasize that when a reader finishes a great novel, he will immediately begin looking for another. If someone loves your book, it increases the chance that he or she will look at mine. So there is no competition between writers. Another writer's success helps build a larger readership for all of us.”
David Farland

“If we don’t feel like we have leisure, Robinson maintains, it’s entirely our own fault. “Time is a smokescreen. And it’s a convenient excuse,” he’d told me. “Saying, ‘I don’t have time,’ is just another way of saying, ‘I’d rather do something else.”
Brigid Schulte, Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time

“how the now-ubiquitous humble shopping cart was invented and adopted eighty years ago. Sylvan Goldman, a grocery store owner from Oklahoma, noticed that when his customers’ baskets became too heavy or too full, people stopped shopping. Clearly their problem was his problem, too. He began to think of ways to improve the experience for his customers. In 1936 he came up with the idea of a basket carrier on wheels.”
