N J Simmonds, along with fantasy author Jacqueline Silvester, writes paranormal romance under the pen name Caedis Knight. 
BLOOD WEB CHRONICLES is their first independently published series, launching 15 Oct 2020. Described as ‘addictive, sexy and wickedly funny’ it’s been promoted as a cross between True Blood and Veronica Mars.

Saskia de la Cruz is a Verity Witch – her only magic being that she can tell the truth from a lie.

As an investigative reporter for The Blood Web Chronicle, the biggest news outlet on the paranormal dark Blood Web, Saskia spends her days cracking twisted para cases across Europe hoping that someday, some case, will bring her closer to finding her missing sister. With each mission she’s thrown face to face with vampires, werewolves, fae and witches. Except not all monsters are bad – some are highly addictive. 

With vibrant characters, page-turning suspense and steamy romance, this new 18+ series has been dubbed by early readers as “a fun crime-solving sexual adventure across Europe.”
