About the Author
Jennifer G. Edelson is a writer, trained artist, former attorney, pizza lover, and hard-core Bollywood fan. Originally a California native, she currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico with her husband, kids, and dog, Hubble after surviving twenty-plus years in the Minnesota tundra (but still considers Los Angeles, the Twin Cities, and Santa Fe all home). Other than writing, Jennifer loves hiking, traveling, Albert Camus, Dr. Seuss, dark chocolate, drinking copious amounts of coffee, exploring mysterious places, and meeting new people-if you're human (or otherwise), odds are she'll probably love you.

Reviews

"What could be a corny premise turns into an exhilarating, fun ride in Edelson's adept hands. Her characters are smartly drawn, and readers will easily identify with Ruby, a strong yet insecure young artist on the verge of adulthood, who is still recovering from her tragic past . . . Fans of Twilight and modern fairy tales will fall in love with Ruby and root for her eventual romance." -- Blue Ink Review (Starred Review)

"Between Wild and Ruin is a stunning story of legends, romance, and destiny with themes of starting over, small towns, beauty, and community . . . Edelson perfectly breathes new life in mythology by honoring the oral tradition of a small community and the ruins that bring to life Ruby's destiny." -- Manhattan Book Review

"Highly recommended to mature teens through new adult and adult audiences, this is a story that lingers in the mind long after its final revelation." -- Midwest Book Review

"A great addition to young adult urban fantasy." -- Seattle Book Review

"Descriptions of the New Mexico landscape are rich and atmospheric, arousing the senses with references to the scent of smoke and juniper, the predatory roar of mountain lions, and the brilliant dazzle of stars in the desert sky . . . The writing conveys a sense of timelessness, making it easy to believe Ruby's sense that the land is spirit-haunted and that Leo, the handsome young man she encounters near the ruins, is somehow connected to it all." -- Clarion Forward

"An intriguing historical tale and an over-the-top love-quadrangle romance." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The paranormal aspects of the tale are credible and richly steeped in traditional lore, and the plot is finely crafted . . . Between Wild and Ruin is most highly recommended." -- Reader's Favorite (5-Star Review)
