Meet the Author

J.A. Clement lives near London with her partner and as yet, no dogs. She has been writing her fantasy series ‘On Dark Shores’ on and off since 2002, and more intensively since 2009 (thanks to NaNoWriMo). The first novella was uploaded to Kindle in 2011, and it has been mostly lurking on or near the bestseller lists ever since, much to her gratification.

The first two novellas, ‘The Lady’ & ‘The Other Nereia’ are available singly in ebook, and packaged together in ebook and paperback form. The third book, ‘On Dark Shores: Mother of the Shantar’ will be full paperback length and is currently three-quarters written. And after that? Well, there’s still a deal of tale to be told, countries to be explored, people to meet or escape from, and a long and exciting road ahead, before Nereia and friends reach their destination. JAC is looking forward to sharing the journey with you...

In the coming months she also hopes to release a couple of other short stories and novellas for her accompanying series, ‘Parallels’ (tales and short stories about events, characters or places from the main story).

When not commuting or writing, JAC can be found on Goodreads, Facebook or Twitter, or via email at jaclement [dot] ondarkshores [at] gmail [dot] com. She loves to meet readers, so do get in touch and introduce yourself!
