My name is Mike Jung. I play the ukulele, but not all that well. I live in Northern California with my wife and kids. I like persimmons, rosemary potato bread, the music of the Pernice Brothers, overstuffed chairs, black coffee, baseball, and people who are not mean to me. I can be reached right here. I write middle grade fiction, and one day I will achieve galactic domination. I’m represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette of the Erin Murphy Literary Agency, and I have no problem telling you I have the best agent, the finest agency, and the totally bestest and most wonderfullest agent-mates in the history of everything ever. Oh yeah, my debut novel, GEEKS, GIRLS & SECRET IDENTITIES, was published by Arthur A. Levine Books, an imprint of Scholastic, Inc., on October 1 2012. I also have an essay in the DEAR TEEN ME anthology (Zest Books, 2012) and the forthcoming BREAK THESE RULES anthology (Chicago Review Press, 2013).
