About this author

Jeri Smith-Ready has been writing fiction since the night she had her first double espresso. A steady stream of caffeine has produced twelve published novels for teens and adults since 2001.

Jeri lives in Maryland with her husband and two cats, who often play tag-team "sit in the author's lap and keep her from writing." (The cats, that is, not the husband. Though, actually...)


Friday evening at 7pm, I'll be visiting a fabulous independent bookstore on the Philadelphia Main Line (where I went to college and where This Side of Salvation is set). Here are the deets:

Thanks, Cosie! I'm so happy you enjoyed Eyes of Crow. Voice of Crow is currently out of print in paperback but is still available in ebook. There also happens to be a used copy available on eBay right now for under $10, including shipping. I'm not the seller--I just like to let people know when one goes on sale so they can grab a copy if they prefer print books.

Have a great day!

Thank you so much, Nardos! As a matter of fact, I have 3 stories coming out this year from the boys' perspectives: Logan's will be out very soon ("Bridge," which appeared in an anthology a couple years ago but will be rereleased with bonus material); Zachary's novella "Shattered" I'm aiming for a summer solstice release (June 20ish); and Martin's short story (so far untitled) will be out late summer/early fall. Keep an eye on my blog here for details soon! :-)
