At home in North Carolina, July 2011
Jeaniene Frost is the New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling author of the Night Huntress series and the Night Huntress World novels. To date, foreign rights for her novels have sold to nineteen different countries. Jeaniene lives in North Carolina with her husband Matthew, who long ago accepted that she rarely cooks and always sleeps in on the weekends. Aside from writing, Jeaniene enjoys reading, poetry, watching movies with her husband, exploring old cemeteries, spelunking and traveling – by car. Airplanes, children, and cook books frighten her. Jeaniene is represented by Nancy Yost at Nancy Yost Literary Agency.

Even as a child, Jeaniene has always been drawn to the strange. She would sneak and watch and watch horror movies at every opportunity, much to her parents dismay. At twelve Jeaniene began writing poetry. Shortly after that, she read her first romance novel, and it was love at first read! She knew she wanted to write her own novel someday, but figured she had plenty of time. That same ‘plenty of time’ mentality also lingered past her teens and through her twenties, however. It wasn’t until Jeaniene was almost thirty that she realized she’d either have to start now – or resign herself to never doing it.
She chose the former. When she sat down to write her novel, she knew it had to have her two favorite elements in it: urban fantasy and romance. Everyone has a favorite ‘what if they were real?’ creature. For Jeaniene, it’s vampires. The first time she went to Sunday school, her minister pointed to the cross on the wall and asked her if she knew what it stood for. With all of the logic of a 5 year old, Jeaniene replied, “Yes, that’s what keeps the vampires away!”
It was just one of the many times she embarrassed her parents in public. You could also say Jeaniene’s been hooked on vampires ever since.
