Jen webIf one is going to query a publisher, Jennifer suggests not doing so in pink ink. Her first, written when she was twelve, was nothing if not colorful. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America in addition to being a writing mentor. Her passion lies in writing historical romances from forgotten pieces of history. In addition to her series expanding Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera, she writes romances set in the Regency and Victorian eras.

Writing from wherever she can find a spot not occupied by her pug, Jennifer admits to being a country mouse with city mouse tastes and is constantly fighting to keep the little critters in line. She firmly believes in OCD awareness and organizations that support mental health research, and her books often explore such challenges. She can’t pronounce pistachio, hates lollipops with gooey centers, and thinks watermelon is the spawn of the devil. Most of all… she dearly loves to laugh. When not writing she enjoys spending spends time in the kitchen with her daughter, digging through antique stores for a quirky find and entertaining the whim of her mischievous pug. It turns out, the pug has her well trained.

If asked her life verse, she points to Acts 18:9:

One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent.”
