TJ Klune

TJ Klune

Travis “TJ” Klune is the author of The Extraordinaries (Tor Teen) and The House in the Cerulean Sea (Tor). Being queer himself, TJ believes it’s important - now more than ever - to have accurate, positive, queer representation in stories. The Extraordinaries is TJ Klune's YA debut.

When TJ Klune was eight, he picked up a pen and paper and began to write his first story (which turned out to be his own sweeping epic version of the video game Super Metroid-he didn't think the game ended very well and wanted to offer his own take on it. He never heard back from the video-game company, much to his chagrin). Now, over two decades later, the cast of characters in his head have only gotten louder. But that's okay, because he's recently become a full-time writer and can give them the time they deserve. Since being published, TJ has won the Lambda Literary Award for Best Gay Romance, fought off three lions that threatened to attack him and his village, and was chosen by Amazon as having written one of the best GLBT books of 2011. And one of those things isn't true. (It's the lion thing. The lion thing isn't true.)
