Jordan loves vampires. She also loves to laugh. And if you know anything about Jordan, you know her vampires will make you laugh.A few years back Jordan received a copy of Twilight from her husband as part of her anniversary gift. By the end of that week she’d read the entire series and moved onto Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Eight weeks and eighteen vampire books later the idea for her first book came to her followed very quickly by Eva Prim.
The Eva Prim Series follows the night-to-night escapades of The Demon Mistress, a vampire with the inexplicable ability to call demons. With both full-length novels and short stories the series has a bit of something for everyone.
Jordan’s other books include Black Magic Rose, book one of The Alliance Series, where the world is set in a hospital run by vampires and werewolves; and The Central City Romance Series, where members of The Vampire Guard one-by-one find love in the ruins of the city.
When she’s not writing about one vampire or another Jordan enjoys spending time with her husband, Ken and their lovable Labradors, Dino and Enzo on the beautiful beaches of New England.
21 Things You Should Know About This Author
What book have you gifted the most? Why?
I’ve gifted The Vampire’s Partner, Book 2 in my Central City Series more than any other. Anyone who signs up for my newsletter receives it free from me. Book One, Her Vampire’s Promise, is already free on all eRetailers so I give book 2 away to keep the fun going!
What is the one productivity tool you use every day? Why?
I use a timer to keep me on track. I time my writing periods and my breaks so that one, I take a break, and two, I know when the break is over. Also, I write my word count down at the end of each writing period so that I can see my progression. It helps keep me focused.
What word do you misspell most often? Breathe.
For some reason I never think it needs that last e.
What three things do you do to be a successful writer?
First and foremost I write. You can’t be a writer if you don’t write. Second, I read. Third, I live my life. I get out from my office and away from my desk and social media and enjoy my life.
What are the titles of the last two books you have read?
“A Girl Walks Into A Book” and “Game of Thrones.”
What is your favorite word?
Currently my favorite word is delicious.
What do you use more often – a dictionary or a thesaurus?
This is a very close call, but I’m going to say a thesaurus.
What would you name the autobiography of your life?
So, this is it?
What is your ‘go to’ munchie or drink while writing?
I have 2 different munchies- almonds and dark chocolate. I like to drink tea- hot or cold.
Is a picture worth a thousand words? Elaborate.
Sometimes. There are times when a picture can make you think of a most elaborate story to go with it, and yet, at other times one single word can say it all.
What animal are you most similar to and why?
I’m not sure. At times I might be a Tasmanian Devil and at other times more like a sloth. I have been told I’m the physical embodiment of inertia. I do not stop doing what I’m doing. So I will continue going, going, going until someone else stops me or if I’m reading, I will not move until the book ends.
How would your best friend describe you?
He says I’m kind, smart, brave, sexy, funny, strong.
What keeps you up at night? (and don’t say howling dogs)
Big projects at my day job, worries about health, family and life—probably the exact same things that keep most people up.
What is one thing you will never do again?
Trust my husband with new foods. Early in our marriage he gave me a mouthful of wasabi. I had no idea what it was. But I do now!
If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare?
Lasagna- I’d make it ahead so that we could sit and chat while it cooked. Also, it’s one of my favorite meals.
What is the best compliment you have received?
I once had a reader tell me how much she loved my books and that she’d read them all and given them to all her friends, and made her book club read every one of them. She even went to the libraries in her area to chat them up. It was really a delightful thing to hear—and the best part is she wasn’t my mom! She was a real reader who didn’t know me.
What question do you wish people wouldn’t ask?
I cannot think of one, though if I could, it is unlikely I’d tell anyone.
Crowds, small groups or ‘go away’?
Small groups for sure, especially when it comes to parties and socializing. I wish I did well in large crowds and that I was a great mingler, but I’m not. I’m shyer than I used to be. As I get older I’m more self-conscious so I much prefer to be with smaller groups of friends than in large crowds.
What would you sing at Karaoke night?
Nothing! I am literally tone deaf. I don’t think I ever hit the right key when I sing. I never sing in public, though I belt songs out quite loudly when I’m alone in my car.
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
Do not over-caffeinate! I’m like a tornado when I have too much caffeine.
What is the one question you wished I would have asked you? Why?
I have absolutely no idea. I struggle to find myself interesting so I don’t know what I would have hoped to be asked.
