About this author

Jenna Black is your typical writer. Which means she's an "experience junkie." She got her BA in physical anthropology and French from Duke University.

Once upon a time, she dreamed she would be the next Jane Goodall, camping in the bush making fabulous discoveries about primate behavior. Then, during her senior year at Duke, she did some actual research in the field and made this shocking discovery: primates spend something like 80% of their time doing such exciting things as sleeping and eating.

Concluding that this discovery was her life's work in the field of primatology, she then moved on to such varied pastimes as grooming dogs and writing technical documentation. She writes paranormal romance for Tor and urban fantasy for Bantam Dell.

“Sorry,” I muttered. “Just because you’re an asshole doesn’t mean I have to be a bitch.”
Jenna Black, Glimmerglass

“Sleep was the greatest invention in the history of mankind. When I was sleeping, I wasn’t feeling guilty, or miserable, or sad.”
Jenna Black, Shadowspell

“That was one of the bravest, stupidest things you’ve ever
done,” he said into my hair. “You just scared ten years off
my life.”
I let out a little laugh, adrenaline still pumping through my
system. “You’re immortal, dummy.”
“I was before I met you,” he quipped.”
Jenna Black, Sirensong
