Jeremy Hurd is a 26 year old author living in Austin, Texas. Despite his current place of residence, however, his heart will always be in a certain city on the shores of Lake Erie known as Cleveland, Ohio. To put the issue of his ambiguous race to rest, he is half black and half white. He attended The Ohio State University only long enough to get disillusioned with academia, switch majors three times, and somehow manage to complete a minor in Women's Studies.
In this early stage of his career, he primarily writes dark literary fiction heavily textured with his brand of stylized surrealism.
By the time City Hall spokesman Sean Delancy discovers that his young new girlfriend is the serial killer responsible for the mounting death toll terrifying citizens and keeping him stammering during press conferences, he is already falling in love with her and may be in too deep to do anything but see the relationship to its natural end - regardless of what that entails.
