After her hostile takeover of LexCorp—er, after a decade of writing boring technical manuals and project plans, Jami Gold decided to become a novelist. That way she could put her talent for making up stuff to good use, including winning the 2015 National Readers’ Choice Award in Paranormal Romance for the novel Ironclad Devotion in her Mythos Legacy series.
Her skills for coming up with plans and to-do lists also fit her teacher-at-heart non-fiction side, as she shares writing worksheets and presents popular workshops online and at writing conferences, including two RWA National Conferences. She’s written over 700 posts on her blog about the craft, business, and life of writing, and her site has been named one of the 100 Best Websites for Writers.
On the personal side, she once moved 14 times in a nine-year period and has lived in seven different states across all four quadrants of the United States, but she claims she wasn’t evading the authorities. (Uh-huh, sure…) As proof, she points out that she’s now settled in the Phoenix area of Arizona with her family and her muse, an arrogant male who delights in making her sound as insane as possible.
Fueled by chocolate, she writes award-winning paranormal romance and urban fantasy stories that range from dark to humorous, but one thing remains the same: Normal need not apply. Just ask her family—and zombie cat.
