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: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JYKOFM6/ref=cm_cd_asin_lnk

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: http://fallensiren.com/ 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.

I've been an Anna Strong fan ever since I started reading these books earlier this year, so when Retribution, the fifth book in this series released, I dropped what I was reading to read it instead.

In Retribution, Anna Strong is still dealing with her two sided nature, her vampire and human sides and trying to accept her new life as a vampire, which I think she starting to come around to, evident in her new-found relationship with another vampire who is also a super hot underwear model, Lance. Warren Williams, San Diego's ex police chief and her ex-mentor now the leader of the local supernaturals, is pressing Anna to help find the person responsible for draining newly turned vampires of their blood. Anna is resistant at first because she still feels a boat load of resentment towards Williams for having a part in her family move to a winery in France, even though it's the safest place for them to be, away from the dangers surrounding Anna's supernatural world.

As a bounty hunter, Anna has to be cunning and part sleuth in finding criminals on the run. These skills as a bounty hunter come in handy while she tries to track down Belinda Burke, a very powerful black witch who has put a death spell on one of her close shape shifting friends, Culebra. Culebra owns Beso de la Muerte (Kiss of Death), a bar in the deserts of Mexico that caters to the supernatural and when he shows up at his own bar near death with Belinda Burke's name the last words he speaks, the clock starts ticking for Anna to find Belinda.

Anna has always been a cocky, hard-edged gal with a strong stubborn streak, who has always been quick to speak her mind and never takes any bull from anyone but she's always had a soft heart inside the tough exterior she shows world.

I've only read the fourth and this book, of the series, so, I might be missing some ideas. But, whats really irritating is that everybodys saying she's the 'chosen', what does that mean? Also, she's juggling vampire and human life together, so what is a vampire life? Why does William want her to understand that and join 'him'?
This is a depressing book to me, there was hardly any happiness, except with her boyfriend Lance. Her family left her to live in France, everybody's away elsewhere, all she's doing is work. There's no reward for her, expect the safety of her loved ones, until her loved ones start dying. Now, its all about revenge, she meets new people, one of which is a witch, who she threatens to kill, and she means it, if she doesn't help find Belinda Burke. Then later on, she almost kills Williams when he tries to kill her, because she can't find Burke.
This whole book is depressing, its all about deaths, and not turning into vampires deaths, but actual deaths. It makes me want to cry. I'm not exactly sure if I would recommend this to anyone, and if I do decide, it'll be after I read the sixth.
If you read this review and find it lacking something, or something should be changed, please leave me a comment, so I can do better next time.

When I saw that Book 5 of the Anna Strong Series was on the shelves, I quickly added it to my must read stack. Having read the previous four novels, I was geared up and ready to follow Anna's latest adventures.

In this book, bounty hunter and newly turned vampire, Anna continues to struggle with living the life of a vampire while trying to maintain a hold on her humanity. When young vampires start turning up dead, Anna is forced to joined forces with her mentor-turned-enemy Warren Williams to dig up answers for fear that she may be next. Add to the mix that Belinda Burke is back on the scene and has placed a nasty spell on her friend Culebra and subsequently Daniel Frey and you've got a fast paced, story that doesn't let you down.

I really enjoyed reading Jeanne C. Stein's lasts installment in the series. She's been able to build a supernatural world around her main character that's perfectly woven into modern day San Diego. My only complaint about the storyline would be that there were more questions raised than answered. The biggest question being -- "What does being the `Chosen One' really mean?"
I guess we'll have to wait for Book 6 to get that answer. It's definitely a book I'd recommend!

I really enjoyed the first three novels of this series- Ana is a young woman who works as a Bounty Hunter, when, on the job, she is accidentally 'turned" and becomes a vampire. It's a fun twist on an old genre, and the series started well, but the fourth book was a let down. With "Retribution" I feel like the author is back on track. Although our heroine is often ridiculously stubborn and her own worst enemy in ways I find insanely irritating, this book answered a few questions- and asked a lot more. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, and I almost did not read it, that's how disappointing book 4 was! Worth a read- and if you're thinking of picking up the series, I'd suggest you do- just don't get discouraged by book 4- it does get better- let's just hope it KEEPS getting better!

I'm really enjoying this series. Each book is equally as good as the last.
Anna seems to get herself into a bind......again. This time, the witch, Belinda Burke, is back and she is using vampires for a very dark and may I say, "profitable" purpose. As usual, Anna is in the middle of it, and so is her partner's ex-girlfriend. Vampires are showing up dead-------at the same time, a new beauty product has hit the market, and it's leaving its users with some blood-thirsty side effects. Another interesting read!!
