About this author

Jeffrey Perren is the author of the historical novel Cossacks in Paris.

[https://www.createspace.com/4252020]

He wrote his first short story at age 12 and went on to win the Bank of America Fine Arts award at 17. Since then he has published at award-winning sites and magazines from the U.S. to New Zealand.

Educated in philosophy at UCLA and physics at UC Irvine, he lives in Sandpoint, Idaho.


Death Is Overrated goes on sale today thru Sunday.

Reviewers have raved:

"A great blend of suspense, tension, action, villainy and excitement. A modern day crime thriller with the heroic characters and daring escapades of a 1940's Hollywood film."

"The reader is kept guessing until the end, just like an Agatha Christie mystery."

“The madness of love is a great motivator of new ideas.”
Jeffrey Perren, Cossacks In Paris

“I allowed my head to rule my heart. I discovered both were wrong. My head said keep calm and a plan will arise, then you can act. My heart said act now, forget about thinking."
“The truth is, acting is the only way to develop a plan. And my heart knows it. Sometimes the only way to find if a thing will succeed is to experiment.”
Jeffrey Perren, Cossacks In Paris

“Love may be the one thing in this world today that is not mad, sir. For, what could be more sane than to risk dying for what we can't live without?”
