Jones. The third book in their YA urban fantasy series, entitled Falling
From Grace, was just released in February 2016. Esther's day job is
editing and proofreading legal briefs, and she has ghost-written for
blogs, movie reviews, and other places online. She loves good food, anime,
and k-dramas. Esther often can be found puttering around and killing
plants in her garden, when she's not killing her characters.
