I have always written stories, but it wasn't until I started the first book in the Solis Invicti series in 2014 that I really became obsessed with writing. I love to read, particularly where the escapism of the story is enhanced with an element of fantasy or science fiction. For me, writing is simply an extension of that journey, but I get to decide what happens next (though it's amazing how often the characters seem to decide for themselves what I'm going to write!).

I love to hear from readers, so please do get in touch through my website or via Twitter.

Thank you for reading!

Bound in Silver is the penultimate book in my paranormal romance quadrilogy. It's set in post-apocalyptic London and follows a young woman trying to navigate her way through a new and dangerous world in which a vampiric race called the Silver have taken charge to protect the remaining humans from a zombie-inducing infection. I won't give away any spoilers, but suffice it to say that there's plenty of action, drama and romance along the way.
The other project is something a bit new for me. It's a little less fast-paced and more contemplative. It's perhaps more akin to a compilation of short stories than it is to a conventional novel, ranging across every genre you can think of, all bundled up in a Sci-Fi wrapper. I'm pretty excited about it, but it's taking a back seat until May, by which point Bound in Silver will be published and off my desk.(less)

I did like this book, but honestly I found this final instalment of the series a bit of a drudge. I wasn’t very engaged in the story and the romance went a bit wishy washy. The ending didn’t do much for me either. I’m just not into detailed battle st ...more

The ending was stonking, but a lot of the middle section was too slow-paced for me. I really got sick of hearing about everyone’s dreams. It would have been 3*, but the ending was so good it redeemed it. A really cracking twist.

Josie Jaffrey is on page 145 of 371 of Prodigy: I’m getting bored. The author keeps interrupting the action to tell us about Day’s dreams, which is about as interesting in fiction as it is in real life.

I really enjoyed this book, because the tension was perfect, but the ending annoyed me hugely. I also found the ‘I’m going to marry him’ stuff at the beginning a bit weird an unbelievable. But all told, it was a riveting read.

Interesting enough, but it was a little rambling in places, which made me put it down frequently. Feels a little dated now.

“Exhaling heavily, I sank back down into the sofa and picked up the book again. When I'd read the same sentence five times, I decided I wasn't going to be able to lose myself in the story and returned it regretfully to the pile of books on the coffee table.”
Josie Jaffrey, A Bargain in Silver
