Joleene Naylor is the author of the glitter-less Amaranthine vampire series, a world where vampires aren't for children. As a compliment to the novel series, she has also written several short stories, including the Vampire Morsels collection.

In her spare time, Joleene is a freelance book cover designer and for-fun photographer . She maintains several blogs full of odd ramblings, and occasionally updates her website at JoleeneNaylor.com. In what little time is left she watches anime and pins recipes and DIY, all from a crooked Victorian house in Villisca, Iowa. Between her husband and her pets, she is never lonely, and should she ever disappear one might look for her on a beach in Tahiti, sipping a tropical drink and wearing a disguise.

If I don't have an answer, I move to the next character and the next until I find someone with a clear cut path. That determines the logical course of the story form there.(less)

Goddess of Night by Joleene Naylor
"The best yet

The whole series is amazing but she saved the best for last. The book has wonderful love and passion between Jorick and Katelina and great action and fights. The only problem with this book is that it kept me up all night reading." Read more of this review »

"Great ending to a wonderful series

I'm so incredibly sad this series has come to an end but did it end with a bang! Joleene has never shied away from the darker side of the vampire norm and that's one of the reasons why I respect her writing so muc..." Read more of this review »
