Jeri Smith-Ready has been writing fiction since the night she had her first double espresso. A steady stream of caffeine has resulted in twelve published novels for teens and adults, including RT Reviewers Choice-winning fantasy Eyes of Crow; as well as the PRISM award-winning Wicked Game and Shade. Her latest is the YA contemporary novel This Side of Salvation (April 2014), which Booklist called a “smart, unpredictable, and well-rounded tale” in its starred review.
Jeri lives in the rolling hills of Maryland with her husband and two cats, who often play tag-team “sit in the author’s lap and keep her from writing.” (The cats, that is, not the husband. Though actually…) When not writing, she’s either out running or on Twitter.
