About J. S. Bailey

Hello! My name is J. S. Bailey. Welcome to my revamped website!


Many of you may remember me as J. S. Bailey, author of supernatural suspense. I'm happy to announce that I've been branching out into other genres like fantasy and science fiction! I don't want to ever be pigeonholed with my writing. If I'm passionate about a story, I'm going to write it no matter the genre.


My life has changed a lot since my first novel was published in 2011. I'm now part owner of an independent bookstore called The Book Rack, located in Cincinnati, Ohio. It's wonderful being surrounded by books every day! Kind of like working in a magical wonderland.


To date, I have published 7 novels and twenty-two short stories, with more on the way. In my free time, I might be found playing the piano, hiking, eating burritos, or babytalking to my cats.

When humankind first settled Molorthia Six a hundred years ago, they thought it was uninhabited. It turns out that the treelike Greens were just holding very still--and that they have teeth.


These days, humans live in the Molorthian desert, far from the bloodthirsty forests. Life seems to be going rather miserably for widowed Sheriff Dalton Kane, so it's no real surprise when unexplained forest fires send refugee Greens fleeing toward town.

When a violent Green attack leaves several citizens dead, Dalton and his new deputy, an ex-conman named Chumley Fanshaw, make the treacherous journey north to see what they can do to stop the fires that keep sending the Greens in their direction. They soon find themselves fighting not only for their lives, but for the lives of every human on Molorthia Six.
