About Lizzy Ford

I breathe stories. I dream them. If it were possible, I'd eat them, too. (I'm pretty sure they'd taste like cotton candy.) I can't escape them - they're everywhere! Which is why I write! I was born to bring the crazy worlds and people in my mind to life, and I love sharing them with as many people as I can.

I'm also the bestselling, award winning, internationally acclaimed author of over sixty titles and counting. I write speculative fiction in multiple subgenres of romance and fantasy, contemporary fiction, books for both teens and adults, and just about anything else I feel like writing. If I can imagine it, I can write it!

I live in the desert of southern Arizona with a pack of spoiled dogs and Tubbs, the Godfather cat who rules them all.

My books can be found in every major ereader library, to include: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Kobo, Sony and Smashwords.

Review by: CRISSY MACKEY on Oct. 03, 2013 :
Xander's Chance was definitely an amazing read. You will fall in love with the characters in the book especially Xander and Jessi. Xander had a hard childhood, he and his mother was cast out because of what he is. When tragedy strikes Xander is given the choice to live his life as he see fit or take revenge. What happens when someone he trusts tricks him? Jessi is struggling to take care of her cousins Brandon & Ashley. When Ashley ends up in the hospital, Jessi runs into Jonny. Jonny is determined to use Jessi to get what he wants even if he has to threaten her and her famiy. Ashley has to get close to Xander but is Xander what he really seems and is Ashley in over her head. Who can she trust when everyone seems to be testing her?
I love the chemistry between Xander and Jessi and their banter will definitely make you laugh. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read a good paranormal with romance, humor, action, suspense and mystery. However I do recommend this book to 18+. I am really looking forward to reading the next book and future books in the series.

Xander is the ultimate vampire and by that I mean original. In his story we learn of how he was betrayed and how if effects him in current times. Then he meets the woman who will make him trust again and fall in love. This is a wonderful and unique vampire tell that is like no other. It's a must read for anyone who is already in love with the War of God's series.

I must say I am yet again enthralled by Lizzy's style of writing. This story maintain's the theme of the God of War series and gave wonderful insight into the character of Xander who in the Grey God's book seemed almost irredeemable and didn't care about anyone with a hint of depth that made you second guess that impression. I love the complexity of this character and the history that makes him who he is. The story is integrated into the series nic ely yet again including all our old favorites without overshadowing the main love interest. Love it and can't wait to read the next book.

I love all of Lizzy's books and this one is no exception. It picks up where the last book left off. I love the new story but still has previous characters in it as well. Great Job Lizzy!

Review by: Tricia Becker on April 12, 2013 :
Another amazing 5-star book for Lizzy Ford! I loved the War of Gods series, and this one picks right up where the last one left off. You don't have to read the others to enjoy this book, but so many of the characters from those books find there way into this one. Besides, they're all fantastic, so why not start at the beginning!

Review by: marsha thalleen on March 27, 2013 :
Lizzy Ford is a very talented author. I expect nothing less than amazing from her, and she always delivers. Xander is a perfect love story between imperfect paranormals. I love the theme of choices that runs throughout Xander's Chance. Lizzy Ford sticks tightly to the theme, until the very end. I was thrilled to get caught up with my old friends from War of Gods. A must read.

Review by: Gabriele Carmona on March 25, 2013 :
right at the onset, Lizzy Ford proves yet again her uncanny ability to grab you by the throat and tie you to
Xander's story emotionally. she then keeps you on your tippy toes all the way to the end with new surprises waiting around every corner. this awesome book compels you to read it in one sitting. a wonderful edition to the *War of Gods* series. a highly recommendable read.

Review by: Luna Larios on March 24, 2013 :
Another masterpiece, Lizzy! I've got to say, since Xander was introduced in Damian's immortal I was curious about him... after the Grey God I was hoping he'd have his own version of a happy ending. Xander was absolutely perfect, his lack of commitment to anything or anyone made me curious. Jessi was his perfect match; witty and intelligent while also incredibly sweet and willing to do anything for those she loved. I loved this book as I have every other before! Can't wait to see what's up next and, although I'm not exactly a Jonny fan but hopefully I'll see him in a different light after the Black God...

This is an edit to my previous review adding the stars and an additional comment since I hit the submit too soon :/ Xander was the perfect medium to give insight into the dark, brooding original vampire. I look forward to future works involving the Originals from Lizzy Ford.

Absolutely wonderful spinoff for the Gods of War series. Xander, the original vampire, is a loner who loves his life peaceful, orderly and his food to be 1 night only. Then Jessi enters his life.
