Jaye Roycraft, wasn’t sure what she wanted to be when she grew up. A teacher? Not for long. A salesclerk? Not again! A computer systems analyst? Better! But that career, as good as it was, was a victim of a mid-life crisis. The answer? Start two new careers after the age of forty.
Jaye became a big-city police officer at forty-one, shocking friends and family. But as challenging as that job was, something was missing in her life.
Throughout her various careers, one thing remained a constant - Jaye’s love of books. Classics, mysteries, non-fiction- all had their time. Two genres stood out, though, science fiction and romance. When Jaye started her writing career, it seemed natural to combine her two favorites and write a futuristic romance. The result was Rainscape, her debut novel. Her contemporary vampire romance series, Double Image, Afterimage, Shadow Image, and Immortal Image, followed. Jaye is also the author of a romantic suspense, Aces, a vampire erotica, Dance With Me, My Lovely,and a vampire urban fantasty series, Half Past Hell and Hell's Warrior.
So far, most of Jaye’s novels have cops or ex-cops as heroes or heroines. Jaye worked as a police officer for the Milwaukee Police Department from 1993 to 2001 in a variety of assignments, including patrol officer, wagon driver, jail matron, and with the Street Crimes Unit. With Street Crimes, Jaye did everything from working event security to assisting the Tactical Enforcement Unit with drug raids and tactical setups.
Jaye still lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but now works in the slightly less dangerous field of commercial insurance.
