J.A. Souders was born in the heartland with an overactive imagination and an over abundance of curiosity that was always getting her into trouble.

Because she never grew up, she decided she’d put her imaginary friends to work and started writing. She now lives in the land of sunshine and palm trees with her husband and their two children and is an active member of the RWA, SFWA, YARWA and SCBWI.


She is represented by Natalie Lakosil of the Bradford Literary Agency and her debut novel, RENEGADE, will be released Fall 2012.

I also love dark and edgy and no matter what I write, whether it be contemporary or science fiction, I can't seem to make it light and fluffy (you know that light and easy beach read, but that's all right because my CP is wonderful at it. :) ) so I'll just stick with dark and edgy. :)(less)

“This is my favorite time of day. When the sun is setting and the last of its fiery fingers caress the water line before relinquishing their hold to the darkness of the night. And I can watch as the stars pop out, one by one, to pinprick the sky with their silvery light.”
J.A. Souders, Revelations

Sandra Thank you so much for friending me! :)


Teresa I just finished Renegade. Read it in 2 days and absolutely loved it. Thank you for writing a love interest that isn't dark, brooding, and mysterious for once. Don't get me wrong, they're nice but sometimes a little warmth is welcome.

Now I can't wait to meet you at the RT convention.
