S. Jae-Jones (called JJ) is an artist, adrenaline junkie, and NYT bestselling author of Wintersong and Shadowsong. Before moving to grits country, she was a YA editor in New York City. When not obsessing over books, she can be found rock climbing, skydiving, or taking her dog on ridiculously long hikes. A southern California native, she now lives in North Carolina with her doctor Bear, a stuffed baby harp seal named White-Harp, and a husky-dog called Bentley. Other places to find JJ include Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and her blog.
