About Me

Justine Macauley writes speculative young adult fiction, mostly about queer teens discovering who they are in worlds almost like ours through adventure, angst, and hope. She was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and was a founding staff member and current admissions director at Brightworks, a K-12 projects-based learning school in San Francisco. She is a member of SCBWI, a 2021 Brown-Handler Resident supported by the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, and is represented by Jennie Kendrick at the Red Fox Literary Agency.
