A. J. Scudiere
Itâ€™s AJâ€™s world. A strange place where patterns jump out and catch the eye, very little is missed, and most of it can be recalled with a deep breath, itâ€™s different from the world the rest of us inhabit. But the rest of us can see it - when we read. In this world, the smell of Florida takes three weeks to fully leave the senses and the air in Dallas is so thick that the planes "sink" to the runways rather than actually landing.
For AJ, texture reigns supreme. Whether itâ€™s air or blood or virus, it can be felt and smelled. School is a privilege and two science degrees (a BA and MS) are mere pats on the back compared to the prize of knowledge. Teaching is something done for fun (and the illusion of a regular paycheck) and is rewarding at all levels, grade school through college. No stranger to awards and national recognition for outstanding work as a teacher, trainer and curriculum writer, like most true teachers, the real joy for AJ is in the â€śoh!â€ť - the moment when the student sees the connection and it all makes sense.
AJ has lived in Florida and Los Angeles among a handful of other places. Recent whims have brought the dark writer to Tennessee, where home is a deceptively normal looking neighborhood just outside Nashville.
