J.D. Levin is a mild-mannered librarian by day… and a mild-mannered rock & roller by night. He has worked as a public school educator for almost two decades – first as an English teacher, then as a Teacher Librarian. Outside of the classroom, he’s written songs for/with Far From Kansas, the Briar Rose Ramblers, Kailua Moon, and Grammy-nominated slack-key guitarist Danny Carvalho. Levin is a graduate of UC Berkeley (BA ’01), Stanford University (MA ’02), CSUN (MA ’09), and CSULB (TLSC ‘15). He lives on the central coast of California with his wife, two daughters, and oversized collection of musical instruments. Incomplete and A Different Slant of Light are his first novels.
