About Me

Hi! I'm Jared Agard. My novels are represented by Colleen Oefelein of Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency. I teach art and film at the Health and Science School in Beaverton, Oregon and reside with my three crazy boys, gorgeous wife, and the most pathetic dog on the planet.

Thanks for checking out my website!

My Books

Living Bones

When a blood-thirsty biology class skeleton comes to life, super-popular eighth-grader, Travis Scott, and his new group of misfit friends must find a way to stop the murderous bones before they become its next victims.

Deepest Darkest Dungeon

Twelve-year-old Devon Everette plays as a Dwarf Warrior. His crush, Emma, plays as a human sorceress. The creatures they battle in their favorite role-playing board game are nowhere near as horrible as the battle they'll fight in real life after Emma becomes a victim of sexual harassment and abuse.

Intergalactic Backpack

Starting middle school sucks, especially when you've got an alien in your backpack who's out to destroy the world. Eleven-year-old Epson Dean must face his worst fears: pool parties, boy-bands, and deadly creatures from across the galaxy in a series of tests that will determine the survival of mankind.
