Violet Jordan Rule #3: Family first, fur second.
With new supernatural creatures popping up at every turn (Ghouls? Really??), the city divided, and her long-lost cousin blazing into town, B-movie writer and recently-turned werepanther Violet Jordan has got a lot on her mind. Oh, not to mention, she’s supposed to be planning a wedding! Her fiancé Chaz is the best, most patient (and probably clinically insane) fiancé around. But defeating her sworn enemy in a battle for the souls of Dallas is going to require more than just Violet’s full attention. It means learning to depend on everyone, if anyone is going to make it out of this alive. Because if Plan A doesn’t work, Violet is going to need all her furry friends for Plan B. And Plan C…
Amanda Arista, born in Illinois, raised in Corpus Christi, lives in Dallas but her heart lies in London. Good thing she loves to travel. The summer of second grade, she read every book in the young adult section of the library, so she started making up her own stories and hasn’t stopped. She has a husband who fights crime, one dog who thinks he’s a real boy, and another who might be a fruit bat in disguise. When not writing, Amanda often dreams of co-opening an evil bakery and selling despicable desserts. She spends her weekends writing at coffee shops, practicing for the day that caffeine intake becomes an Olympic sport, and plotting character demises with fellow writers Wolvarez, Killer Cupcake and Keith (names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent).
