Agent: Beth Phelan

j.a. reynolds

He’s been a pest control operator, a night security guard, cleaned offices at a steel mill in the twilight hours, interned at NASA, sold high-end faucet fixtures, installed carpet flooring, call-centered, taught 5th graders, sold mobile devices, taken LOTS of classes not required by any of his multiple majors (despite his advisor’s pleas for focus), and is most recently a registered nurse, happily caring for hematology, oncology, and orthopedic patients.  And alas—now he gets to write books that you can read.  j.a. reynolds’ debut YA novel OPPOSITE OF ALWAYS is forthcoming from Katherine Tegen Books in the U.S. and Macmillan in the U.K. He hangs out around Cleveland.
