About Jade


Jade Alyse was thrust into a world of colorful literature at a very early age, pouring through her mother's extensive book collection, absorbing and succumbing to the magic that it possessed. 

Born in the sleepy, comfortable southern town of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, to two young African-American professionals in the mid-eighties, Jade developed an amorous affection for family and the cultural ideals that were instilled in her at a very early age. High-spirited, pensive and observant, Jade's fascination surrounded the engaging dynamic between two people, and the entrancing beauty of a southern atmosphere. Her writing has most frequently been described as vivid and illustrative and readers have been lulled into the picture she paints with each word.

Jade can be seen most often with a notebook and pen in her grasp, jotting down phrases and ideas and names. She takes these and pulls them into a vibrant semblance of congruence. Even when she is not working on a novel or short story, she is always writing, always vigilant.

Her stories take on a more sensual, rousing edge, encouraging readers to delve into her Epicurean disposition. 

Jade completed her first novel, When You Come to Me, in the winter of 2007, and it was later published in the summer of 2011. Since then, the novel has sold more than 20,000 copies internationally and has become a fan-favorite! 

Since then, Jade has published two additional full-length novels, and three short stories.  She plans to release the final book in the Brandon and Natalie narrative entitled, The Great Trees Fall, in 2016.
