About this author

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.

As you've probably guessed by now, I'm a huge advocate of helping out wherever I can. And I'm honored to say that I'm able to do just that by supporting my good writing friend, C.J. Redwine, and her awesome decision to adopt another beautiful baby girl named Isabella Grace (there are no words for how much I adore this name.) by helping with her fundraiser/giveaway to raise the funds necessary...

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.
