J Monkeys


J Monkeys has always been a storyteller, although mostly just for self-entertainment. J was shocked to learn that everybody didn’t spend their time with their head in a cloud imagining what they would do if some kind of adventure presented itself. After getting a degree in Creative Writing from the University of Connecticut (Go HUSKIES!) and spending WAY too long writing boring things for a regular paycheck, J is proud to offer this debut novel.

J lives in Connecticut with a menagerie of children and pets and is hard at work on the next book in the Livingston-Wexford series – The Peacock Tale. It’s a piratey adventure! Look for it in the fall of 2011.

Kayla & Quinn are having a really bad weekend. For 14-year old enemies who are forced to live together it takes something extraordinary for things to be really bad. Like their house exploding. Or people trying to kill them. When a DVD turns up saying "We are not who you think we are," they begin a crazy adventure to figure out what that means & they find that nothing is the way it seems.
