About Me

Jax smiles taking a selfie in a forest in Arkansas.

Jax Garren is the author of romantic, adventurous urban fantasy that brings ancient myths into a modern setting, including gods and rock stars in the Godstones, vampires and witchcraft in the Austin Immortals, and fairy tales re-imagined in the Tales of the Underlight.

A former English and theater teacher who aims to be Rupert Giles when she grows up, Jax can spend as much time researching obscure historical details for her books as actually writing them. When not falling down a research rabbit hole, Jax dreams about traveling anywhere cold (which Texas, her home, is not) and loves to play foodie with her husband. They live with two amazing teens she’s proud to call her daughters and three cats who didn’t get enough treats last night. Just ask them.
