Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series is a dark urban fantasy. Jane is a full blooded Cherokee skinwalker and hunter of rogue-vampires in a world of weres, witches, vampires, and other supernats.

Her Rogue Mage novels—Bloodring, Seraphs, Host, and the RPG Rogue Mage—feature Thorn St. Croix, a stone mage in a post-apocalyptic alternate reality.

The Soulwood series is a new dark-urban fantasy / paranormal police procedural /thriller series featuring Nell Nicholson Ingram.

Faith writes full-time, tries to keep house, and is a workaholic. She gave up cooking for lent one year and the oven hasn’t been turned on since. Okay – that’s a joke. She does still make cold cereal and sandwiches. Occasionally, she remembers to sweep or use the vacuum cleaner

I'm really glad that you are enjoying it! The next one in the series is Raven Cursed and is due out January 2012. It's already up on Goodreads so that people can add it to their to-read shelves.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a note. It's always great to hear from a fan!
