Jez Strider (1983-Present) is a native of Tennessee.
For as long as she can remember, reading has been a big part of her life, taking her out of a sometimes harsh reality to wonderful new worlds.
When she was in high school, writing became more prevalent.
She worked for three years on the newspaper staff as the Arts and Entertainment editor.
After graduation and a few bumps in the road, she enrolled at Penn Foster College with a focus in freelance writing.
It took several years before she realized she wanted to give writing a book a shot.
In 2011, she was diagnosed with cancer.
That fight and becoming a survivor gave her new insight and motivations toward her goals.
With the realization that none of us are guaranteed tomorrow, she started work on that elusive book.
Vampire’s Eve is her first publication.
Today, Jez still resides in Tennessee with her boyfriend, cat, and dog.
She is currently working on her next book.
