From Bad to Cursed by Katie Alender

In the Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane

by Caridad Pineiro

I recently had an opportunity to interview Jordan Dane about her writing career and her new Young Adult releases from Harlequin Teen,  IN THE ARMS OF STONE ANGELS (Apr 2011) and ON A DARK WING (TBA 2012).  The move to young adult novels is something new for Jordan who launched her back-to-back debut suspense novels in 2008 after the 3-books sold in auction. Ripped from the headlines, Jordan’s gritty plots weave a tapestry of vivid settings, intrigue, and dark humor. Publishers Weekly compared her intense pacing to Lisa Jackson, Lisa Gardner, and Tami Hoag—naming her debut book NO ONE HEARD HER SCREAM as one of the Best Books of 2008. When not writing, Jordan and her husband share their Texas residence with two cats and a rescue dog named Taco.
