Jennifer: Hm, narrowing it down to only three is hard. I might invite Oscar Wilde, Stephen King, and Danielle Steel, three very talented writers. Haven’t put too much thought to it though.
2. Who has inspired you in your life and why?
Jennifer: My husband has been a huge inspiration to me. He was there for me during very trying times in my life. He’s the light to my darkness.
My mother was also an inspiration. She died when I was thirteen, but she was an amazing woman whose only fault was her taste in men. It was because of her experiences I decided to never settle for anything but the best when it came to romantic relationships.
And, my children of course, I’ve been blessed with three. They’re my world.
3.How would your best friend describe you?
Jennifer: Ha ha, um…
4.How do you handle criticism?
Jennifer: It depends how it’s given out but in all honesty I usually just try to learn from it then shrug it off. Nobody’s perfect and it’s to be expected, especially when you decide to write a book.
5. What three things do you need to be successful in this industry?
Jennifer: 1. Patience – It’s not a fast paced business. Writing a book takes time, and so does the process of publishing it.
2. To develop a thick skin – Not everyone will like your work and people could be downright mean. Use it as a learning experience and keep on writing.
3. Motivation – It’s always good to love what you do. The more you write the more you’ll get acknowledged. It also doesn’t hurt to have some marketing knowledge. Most writers don’t make very much money at all.
6.What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?
Jennifer: Strengths – determined, strong family values, nice and easy going, a survivor, and would do anything for those I care about.
Weaknesses – I’m a bit of an introvert, suffer from PTSD and anxiety, could use a little work on my social skills, and I’m totally awkward in large crowds.
7. What type of writing environment do you prefer?
Jennifer: I prefer a quiet place, I usually only get to write while the kids are at school, or at night while they’re sleeping. I don’t really have a designated area though.
8. What was the first romance you read that stuck with you and why?
Jennifer: Danielle Steel’s Jewels – It’s such a breathtaking historical romance. The main character ends up in a really bad marriage, she then divorces and meets the love of her life. He’s royalty who willingly gives up his position to the throne to be with her. Anyway I’m not doing the story justice. I was quite young when I first read it, and it stuck with me because even then I knew what toxic looked like and I guess it made me long for that happily ever after. Stupid reasoning probably, but there you have it.
9.Other than writing, what do you like doing in your spare time?
Jennifer: Other than writing, it would be reading. They’re my escape. Otherwise, I’m all about my number one most important job, which is being a mother.
10. What is the title of the last book you wrote? Tell us how you relate to one of the characters.

After an embarrassing encounter with her roommate Nathan, Heidi Taylor is in major need of a drink and a place to hide. She calls in her two closest friends, Zoey and Meagan to help rescue her. After they meet at a bar and the liquid courage sets in, she comes up with an unusual plan in the form of a dare for each one of them.
Heidi fell in love with a man who’s off limits and she’s afraid to tell him how she really feels—until a bet is made and her friends challenge her to make a move. But Nathan De Costa makes it easy on her when he suggests she needs a little spice in her love life, and designates himself as her something spicy.

There was a large gap in his blinds, and thanks to the sun, he woke up before the alarm went off. It was the start of a piss-poor day already, and he sighed. It was the weekend, and he couldn’t sleep in or enjoy round two with his latest one-nighter because he was interviewing roommates again. He had just over an hour to get the house straightened up and get what’s-her-name to leave.
Kelsey, Kaylee? Fucked if I know. He got up to go take a leak. By the time he got back to his bedroom, there was an annoying beeping sounding from his nightstand and the naked woman in his bed groaned.
“Time to get up, babe. I’ve got things to do.” He tapped her butt cheek on his way to pick up his jeans from the floor and slide them back on. He’d managed to just get them over his ass before big tits pressed against his back and pretty little hands made a grab for his junk inside of his pants.
“Hmm, what, no good morning?” What’s-her-name purred. “I was hoping to play first, maybe get a little breakfast.” She moved to stand in front of him, pulled his pants further down, and pouted.
“No time.” But his cock had other ideas. It saluted the both of them, engorged at full mast and wanting out to seek the pleasure she’d promised while she jacked him off.
“You sure?” She raised an eyebrow in challenge and dropped to her knees in front of him to replace her hands with her mouth.
“We’ll have to be quick.” He cursed as she licked around the head of his cock. What man in their right mind would turn down a blowjob? The moment the tip hit the back of her throat, he was a goner. He’d given her breakfast, all right—he’d fed her his dick.
