STRONG HEROINES. SMART MEN. IMPOSSIBLE ODDS
~ USA Today bestselling, award-winning author of SciFi Romance and Urban Fantasy ~
Jayne Fury was raised in New York by a Boy Scout and a flock of canonical penguins. She went to university in Rome where she developed her lifelong love of shoes. When she returned she promptly moved West because she’s left handed and claustrophobic. She has walked across Spain. Twice.
Jayne lives on her urban farm in the Pacific Northwest with cats, velociraptors, ukuleles, all the yarn, and extremely tolerant husband.
She writes quirky space opera with a little pulp and a little romance. Her paranormal series the noir lovechild of Dashiell Hammett and Cowboy Bebop.
A note from Jayne
I have been a pulp serial fan since reading my first Doc Savage novel. My tongue firmly planted in my cheek, I set out to write my own take and found Corrie Scott, the heroine of my first book in serial form. The Solar Flame series first book, Freedom Bound, is a my take on Doc Savage—a boom-pow-kickass hero—with boobs.
My stories are in a newly named genre: Speculative Fiction Romance. Expect SciFi, Urban Fantasy, Steampunk, and maybe even some Dieselpunk as the series goes on. Grab all the episodes of the Freedom Bound serial.
Why serial fiction? Why not? We are in a world of sound bites and no time for long luxurious baths with a book and a glass of wine. Well, sometimes. But mostly we only have time for stolen moments with a good story— a story that we want to pick up again and again. I hope that Freedom Bound achieves this by offering a bit of nostalgic serialized fiction with sexy times. I did say romance, right?
The second book in the Solar Flame universe is the full-length novella, Still Life. It takes place on an ice planet. Go figure. Still Life comes out on its own in March.
Along the lines of slow burn romance my Urban Fantasy has scifi elements and is in that same world-build (in a way–in the same way that Brandon Sanderson writes all of his books in the same multiverse). The series is the Guardians of Ghael and wow, the reception for my fox shifting detective has been an overwhelming thumb’s up. The first book is called Fox Trap. Think Dashiell Hammett style noir in a scifi universe. Lies. Shifters and Space Vampires.
Oh and if that’s not enough I just had to bring even more fun to the table with my Galactic Geisha series! Think more smart women who are iron fists in velvet gauntlets. They’re just so polite … right up until they whip out their fans and slice the bad guys into wee strips of sushi.
Very truly yours,
Jayne Fury, genre contortions in fiction… for your entertainment.
