Jamie Pacton writes dark YA fantasy, contemporary YA stories with a funny + geeky bent, and funny MG fantasy. She was a Pitch Wars mentee in 2015 and she mentored YA in 2016 and 2017. She grew up minutes away from the National Storytelling Center in the mountains of East Tennessee; she’s the oldest of 10 kids, and, and she currently lives in rural Wisconsin with her husband, two kids, and a dog named Lego.

Jamie adores gardens, art museums, beaches, cake, whiskey, coffee, history fun facts, fashion reality tv, rainy days, cities at night, and traveling. (She even kind-of likes getting stuck in airports if she has a good book).

Her tastes in books ranges from twisty, dark YA fantasy, to laugh-out-loud MG books, to make-your-weep adult historical novels, and much of everything in between.

Jamie is represented by Kate Testerman at KT Literary.
