Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"A very original world with an ingenious set of rules." -- KMK

"It made me laugh out loud and also brought tears to my eyes." -- A. J. 

"Impossible to put down." -- Jonathon

"There were moments where I realized that I had stopped breathing. There were moments that I gasped, laughed, or commented out loud." -- Ary

"This is compelling YA fiction that sets itself apart from other stories available today. It's unique, fresh and appealing to both young women and young men. Kudos, J Washburn." -- Strykera

"It is a fun mix of fantasy and growing pains, with ominous end-of-the-world consequences." -- L. Sawyer

"I feel like it tells the story that I might have played out in my imagination as a child." -- Zach

"Highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good adventure." -- Penelope

"It was one of those that I couldn't put down till it was done." -- Jeff V. 

"The characters are flawed in a way that equally frustrates and connects you with them. I found some of myself in Nate (which I completely did not expect)." -- Ginger

"I would feel confident recommending it to anyone." -- Busyreader

"Nate's character is very likable from the beginning, and it's fun to see how he handles normal teenage dilemmas with his 'out of this world' problems!" -- Nancy

"Fast-paced, carefully constructed story-telling that will keep you turning pages until the end." -- KMK

"This book is a great adventure that I think the whole family could enjoy. It takes your dreams coming true to a whole new level." -- Melodee

About the Author

First, you're wondering about my name.

I knew it.

No, I'm not trying to copy J.R.R. Tolkien or J.K. Rowling. J really is my first name--my whole first name. Nope, not J-A-Y. Not J with a period. (Abbreviating it makes it longer.) It starts and ends with J.

Just J.

Incidentally, if you throw a pen at a paper from at least five feet away, it nearly always spells my name. "But what kind of a name is J?"--you're still asking. Well, I'll tell you. There was once a man named Melvin J. Ballard (whose middle name was Joseph, but he liked to abbreviate it). My grandpa was named J Ballard Washburn in honor of this man. But he just got the J (without the period). I was named after my grandpa, and I just got his J.

Which is nice.

After all, brevity is the soul of wit.

Now, a few facts about me:

I was born in the middle of skin-walker territory, in Arizona, practically on the Navajo Reservation. Yeehaw.

I grew up with my siblings in suburban Idaho. In a neighborhood with a few good bike jumps, a makeshift hockey court, and even a safe-house for sneaking video games. To the south we had open fields, which, back then, looked surprisingly similar to the Land of Prydain, littered with streams and trees. It was magic. Out there my siblings and I actually lived the adventures you've read in my books.

Then I accidentally grew up. On accident--I mean it.

I blame Mrs. Darling's smile.

But lucky for me, I still find adventure here and there--in places where it's easier for adults to see it. Like Xi'an, Cuzco, and Stonehenge. Being a grownup also meant I had to become a productive member of society, so I decided that writing adventures would be the next best thing to living them. That's what I do.

And I'm glad you could join me--we have some exciting things ahead of us.
