Justin A. Reynolds has always wanted to be a writer. Opposite of Always, his debut novel, was an Indies Introduce selection, a School Library Journal Best Book, has been translated in 17 languages, and is being developed for film with Paramount Players. He hangs out in northeast Ohio with his family and likes it, and is probably somewhere, right now, dancing terribly. His second novel, Early Departures, published September 2020. In spring 2021, he teamed up with Marvel and Graphix to release his debut graphic novel, Miles Morales: Shock Waves. He also contributed a story to the #1 New York Times bestselling anthology Black Boy Joy: 17 Stories Celebrating Black Boyhood, edited by Kwame Mbalia. It’s The End Of The World And I’m In My Bathing Suit is his latest book.
