J. C. McKenzie is a book loving, gumboot-wearing, unapologetic science geek. She predominantly writes urban fantasy and post-apocalyptic dystopian fantasy with strong romantic elements. When she’s not spinning tales, she’s in the classroom sharing her passion for science and mathematics while secretly warping the young impressionable minds of our future to carry out her evil plans for world domination. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family and a feisty dog named Angus who believes rules were made to be broken.

Book 1 is published, book 2 is contracted and should be published by the end of 2014, book 3 is finished and will hopefully be submission worthy in the next month or two. I'm also working on the edits for my paranormal romance short story, The Shucker's Booktique, which is also due out sometime this year (2014)(less)

It's done and dusted and due out October 19th, 2016. It's called Beast of All and it's my favourite of the 5. It's also the last instalment dedicated to Andy's story. But...I plan to write a few short story spinoffs with secondary characters, like Mel, Clint and Sid. :-)

I hope you enjoy Beast of All as much as you've enjoyed the rest of the series. Thank you for your question!(less)

"I love this series

Ugh, it was over way too fast, but then again, these are always over too quickly. This was a great quick story furthering Junis character and world, and, oh crap, did she really do it this time. The Lord of War is a mysterious and i" Read more of this review »

"Wonderful enticing read

Juni’s second story was more about her, than the case she was working. Things unknowingly left undone come back to bite, leaving her to make a decision that is probably unwise. The story of course leaves us hanging on a cliff w" Read more of this review »

Cormorant Run by J.C. McKenzie
Out of sight and out of range, she touched down. Her leather boots pressed into the dry summer soil and the wind caressed her back with sweet promises. Just turn around, the sea wind whispered. Return to my sweet embrace.

“I meant to text quickly, but it took five attempts to type with my thumbs. Ever since the time I accidentally told Wick I'd stopped for cocaine instead of coffee and when Mel, my best friend, asked me to get penis instead of pedis, I lost my faith in technology and proofread all my messages”

“Do you have a formal gown to wear?'
I made a face.
'Of course not.'
'What size are you?'
'Size awesome.'
He gave me a blank stare.
He didn't get it”

“Tall and built like a dense forest, Clint's broad shoulders made a girl want to learn how to scale trees. Except me. I wanted to start a forest fire.”
J.C. McKenzie, Beast Coast

“As soon as I stepped onto the train, I knew why Shifters and Weres shunned the contraptions like E.coli avoided antibacterial agents on a petri dish. It smelled. Badly. A putrid mix of old man, sweaty socks, and cigarettes. My nose hairs didn't shrivel; they curled into the fetal position before they withered and died, leaving my nasal passage a dry, barren wasteland no longer capable of being harmed by the olfactory assault.”
