ABOUT AJ IRVING

  • AJ Irving
    grew up in Boise, Idaho, catching grasshoppers and writing stories. Her biggest
    dream in the whole world was to be a writer. Now she lives in Seattle with her
    husband, two children, two dogs, and a cat named Ish. AJ’s writing flame burns
    brightest when she works on picture books. She reads kidlit every day and
    dances every chance she gets. 
    Her debut picture book, DANCE LIKE A LEAF, will be published by Barefoot
    Books in fall 2020.

    AJ is represented by Jordan Hamessley of New Leaf Literary.
