Welcome! I’m Jade Kerrion, a Science Fiction author. I graduated from the Johns Hopkins University with an undergraduate degree in Biology and Philosophy, and then went on to get my MBA from the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration, University of Virginia.
My varied background led me through many careers across many industries, including container shipping, education, and management consulting. In my spare time, I wrote stories – young adult, fantasy, and science fiction – and developed a loyal reader base with my fan fiction series based on the MMORPG Guild Wars. I was accused of keeping my readers up at night, distracting them from work, housework, homework, and (far worse), from actually playing Guild Wars.
And then I wondered why just screw up the time management skills of gamers? Why not aspire to screw everyone else up too?
So here I am, writing books that aspire to keep you from doing anything else useful with your time.
I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with my wonderfully supportive husband and my two young sons, Saint and Angel, (no, those aren’t their real names, but they are like saints and angels, except when they’re not.)
Thank you for visiting!

- The Karaoke Duo Vs The Karaoke Zombies
on Feb. 19, 2013
The Karaoke Duo vs the Karaoke Zombies is a highly entertaining superhero parody.
On the one hand, you'll see all the familiar plot lines: the slightly awkward superhero, the disapproving chief of police, unrequited love on the part of superhero crime-fighting partners, smooth-talking villains with blond hair and bulging muscles, beautiful minions-in-crime who see the error of their ways, superheroes tied upside down over vats of nasty, boiling things, mind-controlled zombies, 100-feet high monsters roaming the streets, missiles about to blow up vast chunks of the world, etc. So, in a way, there are few plot surprises...
...which makes it all the easier to relax into the story and enjoy the humor for what it is. The story is over-the-top, in plot and in slapstick humor. With charming self-deprecation (Mr. Stark even makes a reference to himself in the novel...see if you can find it), the Karaoke Duo vs the Karaoke Zombies had me chuckling through every page. Occasionally, I snorted aloud and was grateful I wasn't drinking anything at that time. The prose flows smoothly and well; Mr. Stark's writing style lends itself easily to humor.
What I did not expect was the subtle sweetness of the romance in the book. The romance had real heart, and while it certainly wasn't dwelt upon in much detail, it was the soul of the book and the plot.
I finished reading this book in a single seating, and highly recommend this book for anyone wanting a well-written humorous play off superhero themes.
