Liz Jasper's first novel, Underdead, won the 2008 EPPIE Award for Best Mystery. The sequel, Underdead In Denial, was published the following year to critical acclaim. Since then she has written a YA novel and is currently back to work on her next Underdead book.
Liz lives in California near hiking trails and good public libraries, in a house where chocolate is welcome and the resident cat gets fatter and lazier every year. Why does Liz enjoy writing paranormals? With a career path that has gone from teaching middle school science to economics and finance, writing about blood-sucking demons was only natural.
Science teacher Jo Gartner staked the dangerously attractive vampire who turned her almost undead, and his minions haven't come after her. No worries, she has it all under control. Except she's not sure Will is really dead dead. And her vampire-hunting crush is back investigating an odd murder. And when someone notices Jo's vampire traits, Jo must risk it all--before the next person dead is her.
From award-winning novelist Liz Jasper comes a humorous new YA paranormal... Crimson dreams of being rescued from the loser table at high school. But having her long lost father show up on her sixteenth birthday and tell her she is really a princess-of demons-was NOT what she had in mind.

And Jo is forced to decide which side she's on, once and for all.
