New York Times bestselling author of young adult and middle-grade fantasy fiction

J. Elle is the New York Times bestselling author of young adult and middle-grade fantasy fiction and a 2022 NAACP Image Award Nominee for Outstanding Literary Work for Youth and Teens. Her work has been translated into three languages. The former educator credits her nomadic lifestyle and humble inner-city beginnings as inspiration for her novels. When she’s not writing, Elle can be found on the hunt for new desserts sans Chocolat, looking for literally any excuse to get dressed up, and road-tripping her way across the country with her two dogs in tow.

Meet J. Elle

The best place to get a look at my upcoming events is on my Instagram highlights, but here’s what’s coming up:

Texas is home. Though southern California has grown on me. I still prefer tacos the Texas way but I'm making it work. Next to writing and reading, cooking is my love language.

Food is love.
