Jez Strider


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.

Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
When I first published Vampire's Eve two years ago, I said if one person enjoyed the book, I would be happy. This still holds true. Every person that stops by Facebook, emails me, or leaves a review to tell me they liked the book mean the world to me. They keep me motivated when I doubt myself, help me if they find an error in the book or I need opinions, and I see the ones who interact with me often as friends, not just fans.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on getting my entire Vamp Life Series formatted for Smashwords, along with my other books. I'm also writing book three in my Vampire Takeover Series. I think it will be the last one of those, but you never know!
