Canadian novelist Justine Musk is well-known for writing the modern fantasy book BloodAngel. She is the first spouse of billionaire businessman Elon Musk, co-founder, CEO, and lead creator of SpaceX as well as Tesla, Inc., and its chief product architect. Justine, a Peterborough local, completed her studies at Queen’s University before relocating to Japan. She spent a significant amount of time teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) there. She resided in California after her return, where she later wed Musk in 2000. Together, they had six children, but their first boy, Nevada, died in infancy. The pair filed for divorce in 2008, and since then, she has written articles claiming to be a “model ex-wife.” Her first book as an author, “BloodAngel,” was published; since then, she has also written “Uninvited” and the BloodAngel sequel, “Lord of Bones.”
Early Youth & Life
In Peterborough, Central Ontario, Canada, on September 2, 1972, Jennifer Justine Wilson became Justine Musk. About her family and early years, little is known. She enrolled at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada after finishing secondary school, where she studied English literature and received her degree. Then she traveled to Japan to begin teaching English. She spent some time in Australia as well.
Justine Musk’s Career
California ultimately became Justine Musk’s home. She penned the first draft of “BloodAngel” while she was a student at Queen’s University because she had always wanted to be an author. The dark urban fantasy novel by Roc Books was released in 2005 to rave reviews. She published her second novel in 2007. The paranormal fantasy novel, entitled “Uninvited,” centers on Kelly Ruland, a young woman whose life is upended by an automobile accident. The book “Uninvited” was released by MTV Books.
Lord of Bones, the second installment of Justine’s BloodAngel books, was eventually released in 2008. In this well-received sequel, all of the major characters from the first book made a comeback. Along with contributing to “The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2: Love Bites” (2009) and “Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love,” she has also released a short story titled “I Need You More” (2010). She was among the first authors to use websites like Pinterest to organize a book.
A connection to Elon Musk
When they were both Queen’s University pupils, Justine and Elon Musk became friends. In 2000, they got hitched. Nevada Alexander Musk, a boy, was the couple’s first child and was born in 2002. But ten weeks later, he passed away from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). After that, in vitro fertilization was used to deliver all of their subsequent offspring. Griffin and Xavier, identical boys, were born in 2004; Damian, Saxon, and Kai, triplets, were born in 2006.
On September 13, 2008, she made a public announcement telling the media that she was divorcing Musk. Their five kids are shared in their care. In a later piece for “Marie Clarie,” Justine detailed her relationship with Musk in great detail and referred to herself as a “model ex-wife” who gets along with Talulah Riley, Musk’s second ex-wife. Right now, she is a resident of Bel-Air, California.
