More About the Author

Hi-- I am the author of the Anna Strong Vampire Chronicles. Good news! The Becoming is now available in ebook in all platforms and Blood Drive will be out next month! Thanks so much for being patient!! The Amazon link is:

I have joined the ranks of so many authors who are putting stories up on Amazon. My first venture is an Anna Strong novella called Cloud City. The story takes place in Leadville, CO. I hope you'll give it a read and please, let me know what you think of it!

The ninth book in the Anna Strong series, Blood Bond, was released on August 27. It's both a happy and sad time, an end and a beginning. Anna will be back in one way or another soon so stay tuned!

My collaboration with San Diego author Samantha Sommersby is proceeding, too. The book is called Cursed, the first in the Fallen Siren series. It was released under the pseudonym S. J. Harper on October 1. Check out our website here: for more information and our events page.

The only thing I like more than corresponding with readers, is meeting you in person. If you're planning to be at RT in New Orleans, look me up!!

Thanks again for being a reader.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The description of this book is a little misleading as it pertains to events that happen in the very beginning of the book. Crossroads is an very accurate title for the real story, as it is a journey with a major choice at the end. We're talking life altering. Anna has a big decision to make after a huge carrot is dangled in front of her, the chance to become human again. As she travels to find the cure with the help of Frey, she finds trouble in the most unlikely places. If she isn't careful her next step might just be the last one she ever makes.

Anna has always been a very brash character, constantly making hasty decisions on the fly. So, I was glad to see her take a step back to really consider the consequences of such a major decision. Something like that would be bound to have a steep price, both personally and due to her position as Chosen, potentially to all of humankind. Anna may think she isn't worthy of being in such a position, but I have to disagree. The entire time she is weighing her choice, the personal cost wasn't the roadblock, but the cost to others. Another worry of Anna's is that she can now kill too easily without remorse, making her no better than a monster. I'll have to disagree with that as well. She needs that ability due to her position, and since she never uses it on anyone who isn't evil or intent on hurting others, I don't think her conscience should worry so much.

I really love the dynamic between Frey and Anna. I'm kind of rooting for them as a couple in the long run despite their respective significant others. They just seem to be kindred spirits who understand one another completely. It's kinda funny that they have such a close bond when you consider their inability to read one another's minds due to Anna's long ago mistake.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Mission Beach, SDPD Detective Harris visits Anna Strong over odd anomalies involving two hundred year old DNA found in the fiery death of his late boss Warren Williams. She knows she is the "Chosen One" (see Retribution). However, she needs a little time to accept her destiny and grieve the loss of her mentor and the betrayal of her late lover. However, the battle against Chael the vampire is still on as the ancient one challenges her position as he believes vampires belong at the top of the food chain not roaches scurrying for food.

Anna's former human lover Drug Enforcement Agent Max asks for her help to end the murderous terror of a rogue vampire. This Undead transports people across the Mexican border, but once stateside he drains the blood from his human cargo. Her partner David has found out some information about his lost weekend that Anna would prefer he not remember. Anna confronts Chael who implies he knows how she can return to being human, her fondest desire. To do so Anna must locate a Navajo shaman living as a hermit on a reservation. Chael also makes Anna realize he knows shapeshifter Daniel Frey has a young son that Anna fears the vampire or something else will target.

This is an enjoyable Anna Strong, Vampire urban fantasy as the heroine's life keeps getting increasingly complicated. Besides dealing with vampires like Chael, the human trafficker and the late chief's wife, she also has issues with humans like Harris and David. However, this is nothing compared to what awaits the hero on the Navaho Nation.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Emily E. Gallup on September 21, 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback
While I agree with other reviewers that this installment offers a view of the continued growing up process of the ever evolving Anna, I cannot find much to gush about with Crossroads.

While I do not necessarily agree with the suggestion that the seventh book is "filler," I was frustrated by plot arcs introduced and not developed and plot arcs that felt anemic and rushed. Primarily, the early events in the book, Det. Harris and the Williams issue, Max and Anna's lingering ambiguous feelings, both these left me feeling as though there was something missing or unresolved. The showdowns with Judith Williams and the Long Whiskers felt stifled and anticlimactic.

I felt certain that the new boyfriend Stephen had backstory but it is not in any of the previous novels (perhaps in one of the anthologies published over summer?), though Ms. Stein does like the name and has used it for two other characters. I found this very confusing and wondered about this development, adding to the disjointed sensation permeating my experience.

As other readers mention, the maturation and acceptance ongoing with Anna that is critical to the strength of the series is present, but this also felt less fluid. Disappointingly, I felt this book lacked the well timed humor or poignant prose of previous novels, and this likely added to the stilted, let down sensation I have in reaching the end.

The character of Anna Strong is evolving to one much fuller and more complex. She is becoming much more self-aware and is showing a broader palette of emotions. As a result she is becoming much more likable while still retaining the kick-ass qualities that we cheer for. No doubt anyone who has followed Anna through all her books will recognize the maturing process as something we have hoped for, as she gives her all and more to help a friend.
The book starts like a jet taking off and accelerates all the way through. I finished it in one day and am ready for the next book already. Keep on, Anna!!!
