ABOUT AJ IRVING
grew up in Boise, Idaho, writing stories and daydreaming about becoming an
author. Now, she writes picture books and poetry on her big back porch in a
tiny town near Jackson, Wyoming. AJ reads kidlit every day and dances
every chance she gets. She is the author of Dance Like a Leaf (Barefoot Books, 2020) and a soon-to-be announced picture book
celebrating queer girl friendship (summer 2023).
children’s author and former bookmobile librarian, AJ is passionate about
inspiring kids to love books. When she’s not
reading, writing, or dancing, she enjoys exploring the Wyoming wilderness with
her husband, two children, and their English bulldog.
