Author Biography

Other works include the follow up to The Vampire Hunter's Daughter series called The Arcadia Falls Chronicles, The Graveyard Guardians series, and her vampire novel called Savior. Jennifer also co-authors a series called Once Upon A Zombie Apocalypse as well the Beary Tales series. 

She resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children where she practices preparing for the zombie apocalypse. Just kidding!

But seriously, between the craziness of taking care of her children, Jennifer has little time left for herself. The time she does have left, usually leading far into the night, is spent working on her beloved fiction or chatting with her equally crazy friends.

This special edition of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter contains parts I-VI, the complete collection. Fourteen-year-old Chloe witnesses her mother’s murder at the hands of a vampire. Before the vampire can kidnap her, there is an unexpected rescue by a group of vampire hunters.

Overwhelmed by the feeling of safety, Chloe passes out and they whisk her away to their small community. When Chloe wakes, she comes face to face with the only other living relative, besides her mother, whom she has ever met: her grandfather. Chloe’s mother kept her hidden from the family; now, Chloe tries to unveil the family secrets.

Through her grandfather, she learns her mother was a vampire hunter. In fact, her entire family is descended from the powerful bloodlines of vampire hunters. Chloe agrees to join the family she has never known for one reason only: Chloe vows to kill the vampire responsible for her mother’s murder. With vengeance in her soul, Chloe is even more determined to follow through on her vow when she discovers the true identity of her enemy and how he is connected to her.

Experience the world of vampires hunter’s, vampires and mythology with Chloe in this exciting series.

I first became aware of The Vampire Hunter's Daughter by seeing a post for a free ebook of the first part in my facebook news feed. I thought to myself, it was short and it was free. I needed something fast to read, so I downloaded and opened up my kindle and began to read. Immediately sucked into the world of 14 year old Chloe,  the rollercoaster ride of adrenaline and sheer awesomeness began! Luckily, it was the next day Jennifer had announced that she had prints of the complete collection. I quickly purchased one and within two days it was in my hot little hands. I stayed up that whole night and read the complete series in one sitting. I was blown away. Vampires, Vampire Hunters, Demi-Gods and Angels... the supernatural smorgasbord was unlike anything I had ever read before or since. I highly recommend this YA Paranormal piece of paradise to all book lovers. Get lost in Chloe's world and remember; It's always Vampire hunting season!

A war is brewing between the hunters and the vampires and Chloe is determined to strike against the vampires before they have a chance to attack. Unfortunately, her plan goes all wrong and results in a massive takeover by the undead.

This group of unlikely heroes have the power of elements, magic and strength on their side. They have even recruited one of the original vampires to help aid in their mission. But will it be enough? Will society ever go back to normal now that the world knows that vampires truly exist?

The Arcadia Falls Chronicles is the continuation of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter. Following the format of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, The Arcadia Falls Chronicles is serialized into several novella-length stories.

Jennifer has done it again! The continuation of The Vampire Hunter's Daughter, we continue to follow Chloe and her merry band of friends as they battle the undead. Chloe has grown up before our eyes through the writer's pen and she's amazing! The story is fluid. The characters develop before your very eyes as you read. And, there's never really a dull moment! Grab this set of the first 6 books pulled together in a fabulous boxed set in time for the holidays! Great for your favorite YA readers!

What happens when the hunter becomes the hunted? Christina is about to find out when she awakes as the one thing she hates the most.

Anthony, the original vampire has whisked her away to his country home to help her through this difficult transition. Though Christina knows that she is isolated for the protection of her friends and family, being alone with only her new mentor proves a challenge.

Once a Vampire Hunter, control has never been an issue. Now, as a vampire, controlling the bloodlust might just be the fight of her life.

AH-MAZE-BALLS! This installment of The Arcadia Falls Chronicles is told from Christina's POV. This strayed from all the others, as we've always seen this story play out through Chloe's eyes. This was an added bonus for us fans! You have to read this, because you'll love Christina even more :)

When her father died, Lucy Mae Estmond inherited the family business. She has known all of her life that she would be in line to watch over the souls of the recently passed, keeping them safe from the Reapers.

The soul eating Reapers have been a plague upon the Earth, stealing souls and leaving the Keepers as the only thing that stands between Heaven and Hell. The factions despise each other and have warred for generations.

Then Lucy discovers an ancient legend predicting the arrival of the Chosen One, destined to bring forth an end to the Reapers. The surprises continue when she realizes she is that person. For Lucy, being the Chosen One doesn’t change much. Fighting Reapers is just another day in the life of a Keeper.

When she meets Jack Walker, they both realize they have an insane, mutual attraction. Too bad that he’s been sent to prevent the prophecy from coming true. His only mission: to kill the Chosen One.

At the end of Keeper vs. Reaper, you get a special preview of Author Rue Volley's new novel, Stardust! Read the blurb here.

When Jasmine gets the call that her father has died, she immediately heads home to Stillcreek, Pa. Having been gone for years, she thought she had shed the small town and the insecure girl that she once was. However, returning home opens up all of the old wounds she thought she had mended and brings back her panic attacks and inability to deal with her overbearing sisters. The only thing that seems to pacify her anxiety is Cody Baker. Cody has a way of making her feel calm, when she needs it the most. Opening up to this stranger she meets on a train, Jasmine lets him in when the walls she has so carefully constructed start to crumble from grief. It may appear that Jasmine is the only one in need, but as most things go, appearances can be deceiving. Perhaps she is not the one who truly needs salvation.

The love of her life left her long ago, shattering her heart into a million pieces. It’s taken Hannah almost twelve years to push away the hurt and move on with life. That is, until the death of a Reaper brings Detective David Foster back to town and their paths cross once again.

With more and more of the soul-eating Reapers passing through town in search of the Chosen One, who happens to be her sister Lucy, the Estmond family has been busy enough. Now, they rally together in hopes of keeping Hannah out of prison.

With all the trouble lately, being a Keeper, a protector of souls, has never been more difficult for Hannah. Will she forgive David and rekindle their relationship? More importantly, will he find out she is the one responsible for the murder he is investigating?

Sparks fly in more ways than one in the second installment of the Graveyard Guardians.

Once upon a time, something wicked was woven. A magic formed by darkness and pain, a magic that only the victim of a broken heart could have created.

The death of her one true love has forced Goldalynn to use dark magic. Determined to bring him back she discovers she must acquire the pelts of three bears under the light of the blue moon to fulfill the spell.

The blue moon has risen and the three bears are caged, awaiting the fate of Goldalynn’s deadly spell. But, a collision of spells, magic dark and light create a curse, a curse that turns the bears fur into soft skin and their paws into delicate arms and legs… a curse that turns them human. Now these bears in human bodies must travel across the magical realms of the modern world searching for a way to break the curse.

This dark fairy tale is not the book your mother read you when tucking you in at night, you won’t find a fairy tale princess who needs a rescue, but there might be a prince or three in this world. Find out as Beary Tales takes you on a magically twisted adventure.

Jennifer has informed me that Arcadia 8 Mortals and Magic will hopefully release in December and Keeper Under Fire hopefully will release in January! I'm totally stoked for both releases! Make sure you stalk Jennifer at the links listed below!!
