You’ve come here wondering, “What is the meaning of life?” Er, I mean, Jason June’s life. Jason June is a genderqueer writer mermaid who loves to create picture books that mix the flamboyantly whacky with the slightly dark, and young adult contemporary rom-coms full of love and lust and hijinks.
When not writing, JJ zips about Austin, Texas. He loves dinosaurs, unicorns, dinosaurs riding unicorns, and anything magical that takes you to a different world or time. Also, Laura Dern. JJ is a tried and true Hufflepuff, and he is actively looking for an Andalite friend. His debut picture book, WHOBERT WHOVER, OWL DETECTIVE, illustrated by Jess Pauwels, is out now from Margaret K. McElderry Books/Simon & Schuster! PORCUPINE CUPID, a queer-inclusive Valentine’s Day story, illustrated by Lori Richmond, is up next and due in December 2020. And get ready for JAY’S GAY AGENDA, Jason June’s debut YA, queer rom-com, coming Summer 2021 from HarperTeen!
