Jen Frankel is the author of Undead Redhead, a collection of short stories called Feral Tales, and the “Blood & Magic” series about young heroine Maggie Stuart. The first two books in the series, The Last Rite and The Red Ring, deal with Maggie at ages 13 and 16 respectively. The third (and penultimate), Heaven & Hell, will feature Maggie at age 23, living in Montreal and still struggling with her powers.
Her stories, essays, and poetry have appeared in magazines across North America. She also works as a screenwriter/filmmaker, and as a “script doctor” for countless hopeful authors.
She lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, but you can count on her showing up all over North America (wherever there are comic book conventions) and online at right here.
While writing, she has also worked as a pizza delivery driver, artists’ model, assistant parrot breeder, restaurant dish pig, and bookstore gremlin. She can’t help being active on social media, but never posts compromising pictures. That stuff doesn’t even wait to come back and haunt you!
If she was to match you up with the story that’s right for you, here’s what she’d recommend:
✪ For those with a bent toward supernatural (but not gory) horror, try The Last Rite.
✪ Do you like your horror with a dash of humour? Check out Undead Redhead, soon to be a major motion picture!
✪ If you like a sci fi story with a twist, read Second Chances.
✪ What about a different take on the “costume drama,” where a superheroine and supervillainess form an unlikely friendship? Try The Inner Life of Owl Woman!
✪ And if you don’t mind your thriller with a touch of the extrasensory, take a trip into the minds of two very different killers in Monstrous.
