J.M. Reep


J.M. Reep writes and teaches writing in Texas. He is the author of two young adult novels: Leah (2009) and The Spring (2008). They are novels aspire that more to Salinger than Rowling; they’re more in line with Joan of Arcadia than Gossip Girls, more in tune with The Smiths than The Jonas Brothers. These are stories that deal with those questions that are universal to young people (and all people): “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” “What is my place in the world?” “What does the future hold for me?” The characters of these novels grapple with these questions, and each character finds his or her own answers — just as we all must.
