About the Author

Justine Pucella Winans is a queer and nonbinary writer who resides in Los Angeles with their husband and cats. When not writing, they try their best at Brazilian jiu-jitsu, read an alarming amount of manga, and try to make pasta even a fourth as good as their nonna's. They are the author of Bianca Torre Is Afraid of Everything, and you can find them at


"Smart, witty, and daring, this debut is a fast-paced whodunit-conspiracy story with a strong subplot following Bianca's journey to better understand where they fit on the gender spectrum." -- Booklist (starred review)

"[With] humor both whip-smart and absurdly campy, Winans portrays Bianca's gender exploration and timid steps toward bravery... [an] exuberant read." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A Pop Rocks thriller that fizzles on your tongue and delivers enough cults, birdwatching, and nonbinary crimefighting to make an afternoon disappear in a flash. -- Grady Hendrix, New York Times Bestselling author of My Best Friend's Exorcism

Hilarious and heartfelt, Bianca Torre Is Afraid of Everything is an absolute flocking delight of a book. -- Marieke Nijkamp, New York Times bestselling author

Winans has created a pulse-pounding mystery full of intrigue, creepy scares, and adorably awkward queer bird enthusiasts. The trifecta! The only thing you should be afraid of is not picking up this book. -- Jason June, New York Times best-selling author of Out of the Blue

The cutest, most endearing book with gruesome murder you'll ever read. This book has everything: cults, murder, jiu jitsu, anime, anxiety, gender feels, lesbian sheep, and like, a lot of birds. Come for the stabbing, stay for the gay. -- Maggie Tokuda-Hall, author of The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea and Squad

Fans of Only Murders in the Building will delight in this queer mystery that's equal parts twisty and cozy. An affirming exploration of gender, sexuality, and friendship, Bianca's story is laugh-out-loud funny and brimming with charm! -- Rosiee Thor, author of Tarnished are the Stars

The perfect blend of a love for birds and a search of self-identity, plus a murder mystery that'll leave you breathless, until you get to the satisfying conclusion. -- Naz Kutub, author of The Loophole

"Sardonic and witty.. The true golden moments come from Bianca's down-to-earth experiences--[such as] their journey through their acceptance of the nonbinary label." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
