J. E. Bright is the writer of more than 120 novels, novelizations, non-fiction books, interactive storybook apps, and novelty books for children and young adults.
He lives in the Clear Lake City neighborhood of Houston, TX with his pithuahua dog Henry and pineranian dog Arthur.
Back in 2013, I wrote two novelizations for Nickelodeon’s animated show Winx Club, each covering an entire season of the fairies’ and specialists’ magical adventures.
I was impressed with the storytelling and characters back then, and I was very pleased to watch the new Netflix show Fate: The Winx Saga, which was super fun . . . even if I like the original animated version better. The Netflix storyline is very similar to the plot of my novelization Winx Club: The Power of Dragon Flame, which progresses through Bloom learning to understand and control her powers while negotiating her relationships with the headmistress, her parents, Stella, Musa, Flora, Techna, Aisha, Riven, and Sky. The book goes further into Alfea’s war with the evil witches, though.
The second novelization I wrote was calledWinx Club: Beware the Shadow Phoenix, which continues Bloom and her powerful friends’ adventures as they welcome a new classmate (Roxy) and battle a dark lord.

A major cover refresh for Recess Heroes Face the Moon Fumes, my middle-grade science fiction adventure chapter book with adorable art from original illustrator Rima Salloum, is in the works for release in the near future. I like that it shows more action than the previous cover — and shows Brett, the newest Recess Hero, literally facing a Moon Fume. I do miss all the guys being on the front, but at least the whole team is on the back cover.
In other exciting news, the book was translated into Spanish by Hernán Echavarría. The Spanish version,Los Héroes del Recreo contra los gases de la Luna, will be available soon from Brighten Press.
Both the Spanish edition, Los Héroes del Recreo contra los gases de la Luna, and the existing English version of Recess Heroes Face the Moon Fumes with the new cover will be available in the next month or so from Brighten Press.
As always, you will also be able to find it here at jebright.com.

I think we’re up and running! I’ve added all my children’s books over the past few days — quite an undertaking, given there were 106 to categorize on this site. I’ve written more, but those were under pseudonyms other than J. E. Bright, or were in online or app formats that no longer exist, or are no longer available for other reasons.
Please let me know if you have any trouble navigating the site. The book filtering system was the biggest headache in making this new home on WordPress, and I hope it works for you. Please let me know, too, if you see any weird transitions between desktop, tablet, or phone access. I’ve tried to make this site as responsive to different devices as possible, but that’s not always so easy.
Next up: moving my recommendations for other author’s children’s books over to this site, and reinstating my authors’ shrines.
Thanks for your patience during this changeover, and thanks for reading!
