Jeaniene Frost is an American fantasy author, known for her work on the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Night Huntress series and the Night Huntress World novels. Foreign rights for her novels have sold to nineteen different countries.Frost first came up with the idea for the Night Huntress series after dreaming of a couple arguing. "In my dream, I saw a man and a woman arguing. Somehow I knew the woman was a half-vampire, the man was a full vampire, and they were arguing because he was angry that she'd left him." The series spans seven books, not including the series spinoffs. Up From The Grave will be the last Night Huntress book. Frost gives a detailed explanation of why she ended the series at book seven instead of eight or nine on her website.
