Hi, I'm the author of Through the Portal, The Phoenix Glove, and Switching, the three books that make up the Through the Portal trilogy. I love, love, love to write and it's all I want to do for the rest of my life.
You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, or shoot me an email at JustinDennis4@gmail.com
I go to college in southern California, but I grew up just outside of Seattle in a little suburb called Sammamish. Yeah, say that three times fast. The city just south of Sammamish? Issaquah. I'm laughing at you right now trying to pronounce that.
What else? Well, I'm awkwardly tall and skinny. It's impossible to shop for clothes.
I love Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu, the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth, and the Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner. I also am a huge Avatar: The Last Airbender fanboy and I love the sequel, Legend of Korra. Both are animated TV shows that aired on Nickelodeon, and they are the epitome of amazing, funny, powerful storytelling and world creation in visual form. I'm also a fan of Fullmetal Alchemist and Death Note. I expect you to read/watch all of these now.
I'm also obsessed with technology. I think that new modern technology like smartphones, tablets, computers, and e-readers can greatly improve our lives. I do a lot of research into the newest smartphones, tablets, and laptops particularly, and if you ever need any help picking out a phone/tablet/computer, I'm your person! (I also write for MakeUseOf.com!)
By the way, my name's Justin Dennis. Dennis is my last name. Please don't tell me that it's a first name. Because it's my last name.
That's about it for me. I love the Through the Portal trilogy, and I've put three years of my life into it. I hope you enjoy it.

Not a bad first novel for an obviously young author. Needs a lot of work with dialogue, characterization and plot development, but that should improve with each book in the trilogy. He shows a talent for creating an entirely parallel universe full of laws, landscape and technology. Have not read the next two books yet.
