J. C. Davis is an unrepentant book addict who always has a spare book on hand in case of emergencies. She writes Picture Books, MG, and YA, and her debut novel, CHEESUS WAS HERE, was released in 2017. She’s currently at work on a MG road-trip story which is taking as long to write as crossing the US aboard a fleet of tortoises. Ms. Davis is represented by Mandy Hubbard of the Emerald City Literary Agency. In addition to writing, Ms. Davis is obsessed with hedgehogs, taking pretty book pictures, and all things nerdy. She was a MG mentor in 2015 and 2016 and can’t wait to dive in for another round!
