J.B. Sweetser developed a love of language and literature early in life while attending a private prep school in New Jersey (as June Pearson). While attending Lafayette College in Pennsylvania, June continued her literary interests by majoring in English and French literature and writing poetry and short stories. After receiving her MBA, she pursued a career in international marketing, living in Arizona, San Francisco, Honolulu, and Orange County, CA. She finally settled in Seattle with her husband, Tom, where she is now writing full time. Avie No More is her first novel.
