A Little Backstory
What's in a name - and why are two author names listed on this website?
Casey Dunn began her career writing fantasy and chose to publish under a pen name that would honor her grandmother - an incredible literary talent who has devoted her long life to the care and dreams of others, and a good friend's mother, who left this world too soon. Combining their names, Jadie Jones became a published author, and a way to celebrate both life and motherhood, which is also emblematic of the Hightower Series as a whole.
When Casey moved into the southern gothic suspense genre, she wanted to keep the brands separate (and her southern Baptist grandmother isn't one for crass language or scandalizing scenes,) so she chose to publish her thriller titles under her own name - as she is a fan of both crass language and scandal.
Now, the Hightower Trilogy is embarking on a complete reimagining for new readers with Not A Pipe publishing. For details on the history of this story and news for where it's heading, check out this blog post.
