J.E. Thomas


J.E. Thomas writes books for tweens and teens. She is passionate about writing books about what it means to be a good human. Her characters often start out lost, confused, frustrated, angry—basically lightyears from their best selves—but, ultimately, grow into people we’d want to spend time with or have living next door.

A Denver native, J.E. graduated from Kent Denver School then earned degrees in mass communications, political science and public communications from the University of Denver. Her debut middle grade novel, CONTROL FREAKS, was published by Levine Querido in 2023. CONTROL FREAKS earned a starred review from Booklist and was named a Must Read of Summer by People. A dedicated fan of teachers and librarians, J.E. believes educators are superheroes.
