I’m JJ!

I write books for kids and for adults, because I believe words have magical powers.


Stories of all kinds have the potential to heal us and bring us together.

Mia’s Wish

Some Things You Keep

JJ Landis’s first book, Some Things You Keep, is a memoir about growing up after the suicide of her mom. She’s published several articles about suicide and grieving. JJ has also written four picture books: Mia’s Wish, Marshall Mellow, Pajama Promise, and Barrett Blasts Off. JJ is a librarian in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where she lives with her husband and three kids, an occasional exchange student, a three-legged Pit Bull, and a cat that drinks out of the toilet.
