Adult Books / August 18, 2014

        I am pleased to introduce sensual Author Jordyn Meryl. Following introduction is my personal Interview with her.     ~ ABOUT JORDYN MERYL ~ (as per Jordyn’s Website) Once living under the guise of a passive, quiet, school librarian, books and kids were the passions which kept her mind fresh. But now it is when the night muses visit Jordyn, her spirit rises up to wrap around the stories that float in her head.  Land locked in the mid-west she dreams of days on a white sandy beach with a laptop to write all her tales.  Crossing many genres she spins chronicles of romance, paranormal and fantasy, for they are stories worth telling, even at the risk of revealing true feelings. This is Jordyn on her own. I co-authored three books in “The Stilettos Series”. The responses I received were so overwhelmingly positive; I decide it was time to step off into my own exciting venture. The three new books are solely my novellas stories. This fall I will release a trilogy called “Echoes of the Midnight Star”. A paranormal romance, it will follow the rise of Katrina, the Star Goddess and her daughter, Zale, Star Child,…
