Raised in a tiny mill town in Northwestern Montana, J. L. had every intention of being anything but ordinary. After a shortlived marriage at the age of 19, J.L. decided to explore every facet life had to offer. She hitchhiked with friends. She went to Rainbow Gatherings all across the U.S. She lived on a farm. She explored the punk scene, fell in love, laughed loudly, and cried deeply.
When she met her husband, her adventurous spirit didn't dry up. If anything, J. L.'s husband exacerbates her desire to explore. They have traveled to Europe together, with their two children in tow. They have lived in beautiful, ugly and ordinary places. These days they live in Hawaii, and spend their weekends exploring the islands.
J. L. has recently published book five of the bestselling Niki Slobodian series, The Devil's Backbone. She likes spicy food and the smell of the ocean. And she loves getting email.
