Author Biography

J.D. Brown knows that vampires exist because she’s dating one and no, he doesn’t sparkle. Unfortunately, he’s not immortal either (or maybe her standards are too low). A magnet for subcultures and weirdness, J.D. was that socially awkward girl with more fictional friends than real ones. As a child battling a hearing loss and a medical condition with no name, J.D. found comfort in books where strong women always saved the day and got the guy. An obsession with Charmed, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Heroes lead J.D. to believe that her mutated chromosome made her something more, not something less. Thus her stubborn flare to persevere was born. A lover of fine cuisine, coffee, and shoes, J.D. never understood why shoe stores don’t serve Starbucks and soufflé. She resides in Wisconsin were she writes urban fantasy—aka vampires for adults—and has political debates with her dogs. She loves to hear from fans and is active on Facebook.com/AuthorJDBrown

Ema continues to learn about her unique gifts, abilities, and responsibilities as a newly developed vampyre in Dark Liaison by J.D. Brown. Unlike many others of her kind, Ema has a special set of gifts to help prepare her for her specific destiny. She must not only learn to use them but also determine the allegiances of other characters in the realm of the mystical, right in the heart of modern society. Not sure who to trust and how much she can afford to rely on her feelings for Jesu, Ema must carefully navigate clan politics and gain insights into historical connections between rival leaders. Constantly in danger from the attempts of Appolyon to capture and kill her, Ema quickly learns to take advantage of her instincts and will to survive to remain free, save those who are important to her, and, above all, trust in love.

J.D. Brown continues the exciting story of Ema Marx, a superior breed of vampyre, in Dark Liaison. Escaping the death order of one clan, Ema turns to the protection of another and quickly becomes enmeshed in a complicated set of promises and duties. Brown skillfully blends current issues with legend and fantasy to create a world that is as real as what we experience every day. The characters have unique personalities and interact in a complicated mixture of old world tradition, basic survival instincts, and diplomacy. Ema is a character with depth – she must come to terms with her new life as a vampyre while facing the most ancient power-hungry king with an unquenchable desire to dominate the realm of the undead. This is a great story that is almost impossible to put down.
