Jax Garren is the author of hot, urban paranormal romance like the Austin Immortals and the Tales of the Underlight. Though descended from Valkyries and Vikings (she’s part Swedish), Jax was raised a small town girl in the Texas Hill Country. She graduated from The University of Texas with a degree in English and a minor in Latin then found her own Happily Ever After with a handsome engineer who is saving the world through clean energy technology. Jax can be found at jaxgarren.com, at facebook.com/JaxGarren or on Twitter as @JCGarren. She loves meeting new people, so online or in person, make sure to give her a Viking “Hail!” adventure, and love.

Write because it gives you so much joy you want to do it every day. Write because you have something you want to say, and don't worry about whether or not you think other people want to hear it. Write because you can't imagine not writing. Love it enough to work at it, to get better every day, and love it enough to ignore the hurt when people criticize because that will happen and it will hurt and you will need to keep writing anyway. Everyone deserves a voice, be that in words or in pictures, in engineering designs or in presentations in metal or wood or paper with a basketball in your hands. If writing is your voice, then use it, hone it, express yourself. Make the world a more amazing place because you write.(less)

I only plug things I really like. And when a book I really like, written by a friend, goes into a book bundle with nine other books for .99, I figure it’s a public service to say something about it. So I’m letting Irene Preston have my (practically abandoned…sorry about that….) blog for the day to tell you about her news.

Jax Garren, How Beauty Met the Beast

“But nothing will ever change if we keep pretend. People 'live out loud', as you say, not merely for themselves but for a more honest future.”

Dr. Seuss

“The thing about a hero, is even when it doesn't look like there's a light at the end of the tunnel, he's going to keep digging, he's going to keep trying to do right and make up for what's gone before, just because that's who he is.”
Joss Whedon
