Alter Egos:

Are you SE Jakes? Or Stephanie Tyler? Or Sydney Croft?

I’m actually all three (okay, well, half of Sydney, with Larissa Ione)—and I’ve been writing as Tyler and Croft since I first got published back in 2007. I’ve been writing / published as SE Jakes since March of 2011. Up until May of 2014, I kept the SEJ name very separate from the others (aka, only my publishers and a handful of people knew) for many reasons, but the most important one is that I nearly quit writing. SE Jakes brought me back to life, and I’m forever grateful for that.
