Award-winning Underdead and the sequel, Underdead In Denial, have been re-released!
The humorous vampire mysteries were orginially published by a mainstream division of a large publisher, but I’ve gotten the rights back and now the books are published by me. You can buy both books in trade paperback and eBook.
And, yes, I’m finally writing the third book in the series. Which is why chocolate futures have skyrocketed–sudden surge of demand. Scroll down for book blurbs, sample chapters and reviews!

Newbie science teacher Jo Gartner thinks her life has reached an all time low when she realizes the biggest excitement of her year is the staff Christmas party.
Then she gets bitten by a vampire.
And then she’s a murder suspect.
The police are at her door, the Undead are at her windows, and her vampire traits are growing harder to hide by the minute.
If she doesn’t figure out who to trust she won’t be alive long enough to worry about all those papers she still has to grade.
More reviews for Underdead:
“UNDERDEAD is certainly not your typical vampire story, it’s better… I guarantee UNDERDEAD will have you laughing out loud, while keeping you in suspense right up until the end.” ~~ Two Lips Reviews
”Light-hearted mystery with a touch of the paranormal and a hint of romance is a recipe for a just about perfect read.”~~ HuntressReviews
“UNDERDEAD had me grinning from the first line! Off-beat, charming, irreverent and so much fun to read I couldn’t put it down. Liz Jasper is going to go far as a writer and I for one am along for the ride.” ~~ Mary Buckham, award-winning author
“Kept me on the edge of my seat anxious to find out more. I was thoroughly engaged from beginning to end. This is a great story to curl up with on a rainy day.”~~Coffeetime Romance
UNDERDEAD IN DENIAL
Eighth grade science teacher Jo Gartner is back after a deceptively quiet summer.
No murder investigation.
Apart from the hormonal teens she has to deal with everyday and her sensitivity to sunlight everything seems, well, almost normal.
She probably shouldn’t have volunteered to help the hot new teacher on campus with his Haunted House fundraiser.
Because that’s just asking for the real vampires to show up…
And the next thing she knows there’s a dead body.
And the cops are back.
And Jo is forced to decide which side she’s on, once and for all.
