Meet the Author

MaryJanice Davidson

MaryJanice Davidson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Undead novels featuring Betsy Taylor; Derik's Bane, and the new young adult novels featuring Jennifer Scales, written with her husband, Anthony Alongi, among other titles.

Biography

Reading the coyly self-deprecating autobiography on her web site, one gets the distinct impression that MaryJanice Davidson does not have the slightest interest in talking about herself. Perhaps it's because she simply doesn't have the time. Prolific does not begin to describe this chart-busting dynamo, the author of four bestselling series and literally dozens of novellas and short stories.

A writer with a few romances and YA novels to her credit, Davidson had tried for years to interest publishers in her idea for a humorous, tongue-in-cheek vampire romance. After dozens of rejections (and assurances that there was no market for paranormal!), she submitted her manuscript for publication online. An editor at a New York publishing house downloaded the story, was royally entertained, and contacted Davidson to acquire the print rights to Undead and Unwed. On the spot, she was offered a three-book contract.

When Undead and Unwed and its wry sequel, Undead and Unemployed, were released in early 2004, not one, but two stars were born: Davidson and her irresistible protagonist, the reluctant vampire queen Betsy Taylor. A smart, sassy, 27-year-old secretary, Betsy is killed in a freak car accident and wakes up (so to speak) to discover that she is not only a vampire but the much-prophesied Queen of the Undead. Readers loved Davidson's wry take on vampire literature, a genre long distinguished by its gothic self-seriousness. Betsy, with her smarty-pants attitude and passion for designer shoes, is one vampire queen who owes more to Sophie Kinsella than to Anne Rice.

While Davidson has continued to produce more Undead novels, she has also found the time to launch three other romantic fantasy series featuring 1.) a hybrid mermaid named Fred, 2.) an eccentric family of Alaskan royals, and 3.) a cyborg spy. All are infused with her trademark wit and imagination. In addition, she and her husband, Anthony Alongi, have written the Jennifer Scales series, originally marketed to young adults and re-released as fantasy fiction for all ages. Davidson also remains one of the most popular writers of paranormal romantica; her short stories and novellas appear regularly in anthologies.

Good To Know

Davidson is not the only one in her family to achieve fame. Her mother once broke the world record for target shooting.

Before she devoted her time to chronicling the love lives of vampires and werewolves, Davidson was voted Miss Congeniality in her high school.

Even though Davidson is one of the most popular writers of modern monster fiction, in real life she is actually terrified of the undead. In fact, she is currently holding a contest on her web site asking readers to put together a twelve-step program to help her get over her fear of zombies!

As she writes on her website, Davidson lived a transient life as a young girl. Her father's career in the U.S. Air Force led her to live in such disparate locales as Guam, Mississippi, and North Dakota. As she grew older, her life in the working world was just as restless as her childhood. She tried her hand at everything from waitressing to modeling to editing to a stint as a medical test subject (!) before settling on a career as a bestselling novelist. These days, her life may be a bit more settled, but it has hardly slowed down.

A few fun outtakes from our interview with Davidson

"I'm a former model -- worst job ever, honestly."

"I'm a gigantic sushi hog -- it's pretty much my favorite meal."

"The more terrible and groaningly awful a horror movie is, the more I like it."

"Um, I like bubble baths? Seriously. I know that sounds like something a Playboy Bunny would say, but I really do."

"I like taking my kids to new restaurants and encouraging them to try new dishes -- we did "Dim Sum" just the other day."

    An irreverent amusing tale

    As the countdown to the wedding of the millennium continues, Betsy Taylor, Queen of the Vampires, is unhappy for a change it has nothing to do with shoes. Her house is jammed with visitors some permanent from all walks of life including some dead like a ghost, a werewolf, and a Fiend.----------- Meanwhile her fiancé Vampire King Eric Sinclair seems to vanish at the first hint of a wedding ceremony. His vanishing act with his bloodsucking buddies angers Betsy who is tired of taking care of the wedding. Now a werewolf pack is camped nearby just as Betsy begins to investigate what happened to King Eric as his disappearance seems more than just cold feet.--------------- The latest ¿Undead¿ romantic fantasy is like its predecessors an irreverent amusing tale as the Big Day nears. Betsy feels overwhelmed with guests and unwanted crashers arriving while her stud pulls a Houdini and vanishes. She gets angrier because she still needs to find the right shoes instead of saving her hunk of a fiancé. Fans of the series will enjoy this lighthearted entry wondering whether the royal couple will make it to the altar on time.-------- Harriet Klausner

    ...Biting humor and outlandish wit

    In book 6 of Davidson¿s highly acclaimed Undead series, we find ourselves preparing for Betsy¿s big day! You know the one. The one that she¿s been preparing for since seventh grade? Our fair Betsy has finally managed to get her scrumptious vampire king and consort, Eric ¿Sink Lair¿ Sinclair to propose and give her the proper wedding that she¿s always dreamed of. The only problem is¿Eric has gone missing only weeks before the big day. And, unfortunately, it¿s not only Eric. Her friends and family are MIA, as well. At first, she chalks up her groom¿s disappearance to the spat they had 'again' or maybe it could be that he just has cold feet. And as for her friends and family, well, just how insensitive can they be? Abandoning her in her most precious time of need. I mean, really, who¿s going to help her pick out that uber-fabulous wedding gown that she¿s always dreamed of? And lest we forget about the shoes! What¿s a vamp bride to do? It isn¿t until things start getting really weird that Betsy finally realizes that something is amiss in her perfect world - like the local werewolf pack arriving unannounced at her front door looking for their missing packmate. When things finally start adding up, Betsy decides to do a little of investigating of her own. It appears that there are nefarious forces at work trying to bring Betsy down ¿ again. Can I just say that I absolutely loved this latest addition to the Undead series! No only does it has the biting humor and outlandish wit that we all love and have come to expect from MJ, but it also gives the series a kick in the patootie, as well. For so long, well, since her turning really, we¿ve seen Betsy flounder around in her new vampire world, resisting and fighting the changes in her ¿life¿ and ignoring her new role as Queen of the Undead. But no more. This appears to be a pivotal turning point not only in the series, but also with Betsy as well. It also seems to have a slightly more serious tone than prior Undead books. Davidson completely shines in this book and shows us why her legions of fans keep coming back for more.

    Once again, Maryjanice Davidson hits it off with another great book in the series. I was hoping that this book would have much more action than the previous one, and I was so happy that it did! In this book. Betsy finds herself alone for the first time since she became Undead. Although she doesn't totally realize it right away, it does eventually dawn on her and she has to fight to the finish to save the people she loves- so she can have her wedding of course! Another exceptional piece to the series, and I highly recommend it! A+

    Okay, I missed Sinclair

    Undead and Uneasy is the 6th book in MaryJanice Davidson's Betsy Taylor series. Betsy Taylor is the Queen of the Vampires. She really doesn't want to be a Queen. She didn't even want to be a vampire. She woke up one morning to find that she was dead and had been turned into a vampire. In the big Book of the Dead, it prophesied that she would be queen and her consort would be the delectably sexy, Eric Sinclair. Sure enough it comes true and now Betsy is planning her wedding to Eric. Betsy is about to pull her hair out because nobody wants to help her with all the arrangements most of all, the lucky groom.

    I have only listened to this series on audio and never read any of the books. I like the way that Lucy Woo narrates the stories. She does Betsy's voice really well, but I don't like the way she does Sinclair. I think it is hard for women narrators to do men's voices well. Sinclair always comes across as sounding very condescending and I don't think that if I was reading the book myself he wouldn't sound condescending.

    Anyway, I thought this Betsy book was average. Betsy is very demanding in this book and she tended to get on my nerves. Sinclair and most of the usual cast was missing in this book most of the time, so it was mainly Betsy front and center. I thought the mystery was obvious and it takes Betsy a while to catch on. It was just an okay read. I don't know if I will continue on with the series.

    BE PREPARED

    This series is a fun read from books 1 thru 8 but in book 9 the author betrays everything you had learned about the characters and their history of them she completely violates all their history in the last 2 pages so just be prepared Read 1 thru 8 and enjoy but if you want to maintain the series skip #9 I am very disappointed to have spent my hard earned money on this entire and did enjoy them but in book 9 is a complete violation of the series so for your knowledge and your final decision be aware

    Undead Keeps It Fun

    If you haven't read the Undead books I would highly recommend. They are fun, upbeat, sexy, and a little off the beaten path. Betsy is not what would be defined as the typical vampire and I wouldn't want her to be!!

    Okay Book Candy

    I'm not sure how many more of these I can read. They aren't terrible, slightly entertaining ... but they aren't holding the same charm that the earlier novels did. I'm waiting for something awe inspiring and romantic to pull me back in. I wish that the author would try and come up with a full plan for the characters and where they will be in the next few novels so that they follow a sequence that keeps the reader wanting more instead of wondering when the meat was coming.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    If you're looking for a fun read to finish before bedtime, UNDEAD AND UNEASY will do the trick. It only takes about two hours to read from first page to last, and you'll get in a few laughs along the way. <BR/><BR/>Betsy is still preparing for her wedding to Vampire King Eric Sinclair, but this time there are even more complications than usual -- Jessica is still sick with cancer, some people close to her have ended up dead, Tina has been sent to ease ruffled vampire feathers in Europe, and the King himself seems to be hiding away, sulking. Oh, and there's BabyJohn to take care of, and sister Laura to handle, and the Devil to avoid, and even a visit from the Wyndham Werewolf clan. <BR/><BR/>Overall, this is a fun, easy read in the Queen Betsy series, and readers will be happy to find some answers to a few previously unanswered story lines.

    The Betsy we know and love is back!!

    Loved this installment of the Undead series. After the disappointment of Undead & Unpopular I really enjoyed this book. Betsy is not nearly as shallow in this book but still is Betsy. MJD ties up a lot of loose ends and gives us a fun chapter in the life of Betsy the Vampire Queen.

    I have to say, after Undead and Unpopular I was starting to drift away from this series, but Undead and Uneasy was a fantastic book. It helped explain things that I didn't understand in the last book and was very entertaining.

    Betsy's back!

    I have to say I've been disappointed in the past few books of this series, probably because I really loved the first few books. This book is pure beginning of the series. What will Betsy do once she loses her support group? Will they get married? Is there life in this series (pun intended)? YOU BET! Great 'comeback' in my opinion. Can't wait to see what happens next.
