About Joleene Naylor

Joleene Naylor grew up in southwest Iowa surrounded by soybeans, corn and very little entertainment – so she made her own. She has been writing and drawing since she was a small child, with a particular leaning towards fantasy, horror and paranormal. It is this love of all that goes bump in the night that led her to write the Amaranthine series.
In her spare time she is a freelance artist, book cover designer and photographer. Her current projects include the seventh novel in the Amaranthine series, a collection of Executioner short stories, and The Terrible Turtle Conspiracy, a web manga collaboration with writer Jonathan Harvey. Joleene maintains blogs full of odd ramblings and hopes to win the lottery. Until she does, she and her husband live near Bolivar Missouri with their cats and turtles. However, unless she starts buying tickets she may never actually win anything.

Great story. Child Vampires are either very frightening, very tragic, or both. This one seemed tragic. Want to read more!

Great short story about her characters. Felt like this was a peak into a long history of these characters, and not something that's just made to fill the space.

Alexander is one of my favorite characters. He is so loveable and so tragic. Jo Naylor paints a wonderful picture of the child and his family and their lives.

I really enjoyed this one. Alexander and his family were among my favorite characters in Shades of Gray, so it was fun to get a deeper look into their lives. He longs for a normal childhood, but sadly, he'll never have one. I won't spoil it, but the ending was a powerful one. Definitely one that will stick with you!
