K.J. Quint believes everyone has a story to tell. Quint was born and raised in Woodbridge, Virginia, and has always had a passion for writing tales of adventure, and particularly: humor. Humor is his weapon to conquer life’s challenges. He loves a funny story, the sort you can get lost in. He views laughter as essential to life. Not just because something is funny, but just to express joy about life. We all go through trials and challenges, but laughter lets you enjoy life that much more. It gives you that wonderful, big feeling, you can only get through loving life, no matter what comes your way.
K.J. loves the aesthetic qualities of writing – the big picture created by big ideas and a boundless imagination, like peering out at the broad horizon of our beautiful world. He’s especially inspired by his late grandfather, who despite his own high standards, thought K.J. had a real skill, and bragged about him in private to his friends. K.J. loves to learn, loves music and dance and movies, loves to study history, and loves to find answers where other people see questions. He strives to see the world from different perspectives, even if to better understand his own.
In addition to a passion for making others smile, K.J. also has an eighty pound lapdog. Because, just like writing fantasy, there are no limits on your dreams. Or the potential for your adventures.
Books by K.J. Quint
Audrey (she prefers Odd) lives in a perpetual state of boredom. She tries to keep busy with small jobs around town and by listening to stories of adventure from a boy in the travelling circus—her only friend Kite. But Odd has always had one thought in her head: I want to go on my own adventure.
It appears that Odd's wish finally comes true as a flying island appears over the town and whisks Audrey and Kite away to a far-off place, into a forest of the magical Nightlands where mystic creatures and magical folk roam. It’s up to Audrey and Kite to learn how to master the strange workings of this new world in order to find their way home.
