I’m JD Burns, a writer of fun middle grade novels and the occasional sci-fi short story.

I love Middle Grade because you can really have fun with the story, but at the same time the writing has to be unforgettable. After all, captivating young readers isn’t just about the cool magic – there has to be great storytelling too. (Well…that and fire-breathing swamp ogres.)

I’m currently seeking representation for my MG Contemporary Mystery  (Nuclear Basketballs and Other Dangerous Inventions)

I live in western Pennsylvania with my wife and 17 year old son, who is my toughest critic (and my staunchest advocate).

You can follow me on twitter @jdburnswrites.

I hope you find my website informative and useful…or if not, then at least humorous.

All the best,
