Justine Musk

The Future of Courage


Justine Musk has been a student of story since before she wrote her first novel at age 14.  She is the author of the dark fantasy thrillers BLOODANGEL, LORD OF BONES, and UNINVITED, published by imprints at Penguin and Simon + Schuster. When a tragic event disrupted her own life story, writing became a way of reframing, of asking increasingly personal questions about the broken stories that rule the culture and the people who rise up to challenge them. Her nonfiction has appeared in Marie Claire, Slate, Mashable and others, and she is a 3x TEDx speaker on the shadow side of creativity. In 2015, her Quora answer to the question “How can I be as great as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk or Sir Richard Branson?” went viral.
