JONNY

                    is a product of the Great State of Texas, born and raised near and along the Gulf Coast and currently lives in San Antonio. They are a Sagittarius sun, Capricorn everything else, an avid supporter of Hot Cheetos and cheese, and a breakfast taco aficionado.

Jonny is an author of contemporary young adult novels inspired by their own Tejane & Chicane and queer identities including their debut novel Fifteen Hundred Miles from the Sun, a Pura Belpré Honor Book and a Kirkus Best YA Fiction of 2021 selection, and Ander and Santi Were Here, expected early 2023.

When not writing, Jonny enjoys reading, playing Dungeons and Dragons (bard main) and Super Smash Bros. (Inkling main), cooking, going to concerts, listening to Selena, caring for their many cacti children, and spending hours on airline websites, pondering on where they might venture off to next.
