J.A. White

We knew him first as a legendary local teacher (Glen Ridge) and now he’s one of the hottest new authors in the kids and YA spring lineup! With a Hollywood option already lurking and absolutely stellar reviews, J.A. introduces us to The Thickety: A Path Begins, the first in a harrowing, magical series that will have the kids dying for more.  Check it out.




A dark, forbidden forest. Vicious beasts. Deadly plants. An evil spellbook. Secrets. Mysteries. Witches, both good and bad . . . A Path Begins is the thrilling start of a new middle-grade fantasy series about a girl, a mysterious forest, and a book of untold magical powers. Kara and her brother, Taff, are shunned by their village because their mother was a witch. The villagers believe nothing is more evil than magic, except for what lurks in the nearby Thickety. But when Kara enters the forbidden forest, she discovers a strange book, a grimoire that might have belonged to her mother. The events she then sets in motion are both awe-inspiring and terrifying. . . . Full of action, set in an intriguing and dangerous world, and illustrated with gorgeous and haunting line art, The Thickety: A Path Begins is a truly stunning book.




J.A. White is a teacher and writer and lives with his family in New Jersey.
