About this author

Jessica L. Padilla lives in southeastern Iowa with her 3 wonderful, crazy little boys. She enjoys reading, writing, hiking, video games and movies in her spare time. She is addicted to french fries, mountain dew and rock music and loves animals, zombies and the smell of cinnamon. She has wanted to be a writer since she was 9 years old after reading Edgar Allen Poe for the first time and her first published short story was a guide to surviving a zombie apocalypse in her college literary magazine. Blood Origins (A Black Novel, Book #1) is her first full length Young Adult novel and will be published late spring 2013.


Have been swamped with "life" things and haven't had much time for writing (or, if I'm really honest, much drive to do so lately..) but hope to get back to it soon! Also, Origins is about to get an upgrade! More to come soon...

“How do we do this? Do I have to bite you?" I ask, squirming uncomfortably at the thought of doing so.

"Why, do you want to? If so, by all means go right ahead. I doubt I'd mind much," he laughs. "No, no biting. You watch too many movies.”
Jessica L Padilla, Origins

“I thought I told you to stay away from me,” I snap.

“No, you told me not to touch you again. You never said to stay away,” he shrugs.

“Why are you such an asshole?”

“Probably the same reason you’re such a pain in the ass. For the fun of it.”
Jessica L Padilla

“Ow!” I yelp. My eyes pop open and I jerk up into a sitting position, automatically reaching for my now injured leg. “You kicked me!” I accuse as I glare angrily at my attacker. I still in disbelief as I find myself once again face to face with the same boy I had encountered only days before.

“I had to make sure you were alive,” he states simply, an edge of amusement coloring his words, as he shrugs unapologetically. “It’s not like I find a lot of girls playing dead in the woods.”

“What’s your name?”

“You just can’t take a hint, can you?”

“That’s kind of a mouthful. Do you happen to go by a nickname?”
Jessica L Padilla

“Do you have any idea how hard it is to walk through the woods in a dress and heels?!”

“So take them off…..”

“What?” I question him, confused.

“Well, not the dress obviously….unless you want to. I won’t object,” he smirks.
“The shoes. Take off your shoes.”
Jessica L Padilla

“A familiar scent snaps me back to reality and I sit up just as I hear footsteps approaching. “What do you want?” I hiss icily as Vraiden steps into view.

“Money. Good looks. Invincibility. Oh, wait, I already have all that,” he smirks as he sits beside me.”
