J.L. Powers writes angst-ridden fiction for teens (but wishes she could be funny instead...) Her latest novel is THIS THING CALLED THE FUTURE (Cinco Puntos, 2011), a coming-of-age novel set in post-apartheid South Africa.


Background Information

I grew up in the Southwest along the U.S.-Mexico border, which has had a major influence on my writing since it wasn't anything like the rest of the U.S. Growing up in another culture led me to an intense interest in all things Latino; as an adult, I've also expanded my areas of interest to Africa. I am fascinated by religion--how it can be both a healing and a harmful force--and I'm fascinated by how complicated people are. Whenever I read about somebody's job, I think, "I'd like to do that." Then I realize I'd like to do it for about 3 months--just long enough to write about it--so I've decided not to try any more careers out and just stick to writing, thank you very much.
