Jaye McKenna was born a Brit and was dragged, kicking and screaming, across the Pond at an age when such vehement protest was doomed to be misinterpreted as a “paddy”. She grew up near a sumac forest in Minnesota and spent most of her teen years torturing her parents with her electric guitar and her dark poetry. She was punk before it was cool and a grown-up long before she was ready. Jaye writes fantasy and science fiction stories about hot guys who have the hots for each other. She enjoys making them work darn hard for their happy endings, which might explain why she never gets invited to their parties.

If you're serious about writing, you put your butt in that chair and you write whether you feel like it or not. Some days it's like getting blood out of a rock. Other days the words just flow and it's almost magical. But if you don't show up and apply butt to chair, there won't be any words at all.(less)

Thanks! It's always lovely to hear that someone enjoys my work!

Wytch Kings, Book 4 is called Dragonwatch, and will feature Tristin from Shadowspire and Prince Mikhyal of Rhiva as the romantic leads. Dragonwatch will also introduce an interesting secondary character who seems to think it's his book, and is turning into a scene-stealing little monster. If all goes well, it will be out in the fall.

In the meantime, if you need a fix before then, the final book in the Guardians of the Pattern series, Closing the Circle, featuring Draven, will be out in May (I can't believe the series is almost done!).

After Dragonwatch, there will be a fifth Wytch Kings book (not sure of the title yet), and I'll be starting a new fantasy series, which currently has the working title of Kingmakers. Kingmakers will be a little different than my other series, as it will follow one couple through a number of adventures.(less)
