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. Jeri is represented by Ginger Clark at Curtis Brown, Ltd.
