About J.S. Living

 From novels and novellas to comic books and short stories, J.S. Living uses her words to write about the human condition.

Her debut novel, The Covenant of Blood,  is about Elizabeth Bathory Tepes, the daughter of Vladimir Tepes and Elizabeth Bathory, and her mission to find her mother. It explores loneliness, growing up in a single-parent household, morality, nature vs. nurture, and the dilemma of wants vs. needs.
