Jason Gurley

By day, I'm a user experience designer; by evenings/weekends, I write novels from my home in Scappoose, Ore. My newest is Awake in the World, published February 2019 by Roaring Brook Press; my previous novel, Eleanor, was published by Crown in 2016 and has since been translated into German, Portuguese, and Turkish. I’m currently working on a new project.

Multnomah County Library's Best Books of 2016

Such a pleasure to learn today that Multnomah County Library has included Eleanor among its best books of the year, a wonderful reading list that includes novels by Eowyn Ivey and Ann Patchett, and children's books by Vera Brosgol and Carson Ellis. The whole list can be found here, and it's full of terrific reads!
