N. D. Jones, Ed.D., is a USA Today bestselling author who lives in Maryland with her husband and two children. She is a dedicated educator, committed to equitable and excellent education for all students. N.D. is the founder of Kuumba Publishing, an art, audiobook, eBook, and paperback company. Kuumba Publishing is a forum for creativity, with a special commitment to promoting and encouraging creative works of authors and artists of African descent. Her teenage daughter created the image design for Kuumba Publishing, while her son has written a role playing game original character bio for a new paranormal romance series--making Kuumba Publishing a true family affair.

A desire to see more novels with positive, sexy, and three-dimensional African American characters as soul mates, friends, and lovers, inspired the author to take on the challenge of penning such romantic reads. She is the author of three paranormal romance series: Winged Warriors, Death and Destiny and Dragon Shifter Romance. She is also the author of Forever Yours, a fantasy romance series, and The Styles of Love, a contemporary romance trilogy.

N.D. likes to read historical and paranormal romance novels, as well as comics and manga.
