J.L. Murray was born in a brothel in Amsterdam, and at the age of three was adopted by a roving band of literary gypsies. They taught her to smoke, drink whiskey, and wax poetic by the age of five, and taking the reins, J.L. started writing on a typewriter she found in a dumpster.
She can be found these days at her writing blog, http://jlmurraywrites.blogspot.com/. She is also known to frequent the popular short story site, http://blergpop.com/, where her edgier short stories can be found.
J.L. is the bestselling author of the Niki Slobodian novels Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and The Devil Is a Gentleman, as well as the upcoming zombie parable, The Drilling Fields, out Fall 2012.

All she has to do is round up a homicidal Dark that’s escaped from Hell and is cruising around the city in borrowed bodies. The murders are piling up, with Niki’s notorious father somehow involved, and Niki’s running out of time. And it seems the Dark isn’t the only thing that escaped…
