Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: Hi Jennifer! We’re very excited to have you with us today! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to drop by and spend some time with us!
Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: We like to start out getting to know our guest authors a little bit better?
2) What inspired you to become a writer? How long have you been writing for?
5) If you could list 3 things that never fail to make you smile, what would they be?
Jennifer: 1) My crazy cats; 2) my husband being goofy; 3) dollhouses
8) If you could have any super power, what would you want it to be and why?
10) Who are some of your favorite authors, and what are a couple titles in your TBR pile right now?
Jennifer: I read across genres, liking Terry Pratchett in fantasy, Patricia Briggs and Carrie Vaughan in Urban Fantasy, Donna Leon in mystery, and in romance, Virginia Kantra, Eloisa James, Angela Knight, and so many, many, many more. I can’t list the romance loves without leaving someone out. I’m very open in my romance reading, liking historical, erotic, paranormal, contemporary, suspense…
The other series I always love getting back to is the Shareem, erotic romance by Allyson James. Writing about those guys is like hanging out with old friends. I’m always interested in what the gang has been up to. They are unashamedly interested in sex!
Book Monster Reviews/ LITERAL ADDICTION: O.K, now we'd like to ask some questions relating to the books…
19) What's next for Jennifer Ashley and your alter egos? What do you have planned in the upcoming months?
Jennifer: I am so incredibly busy, I can’t breathe. In the remainder of the year, I will have coming out another Ashley Gardner mystery plus a short story collection, the Shifter novella (BodyGuard), the next Stormwalker book (Nightwalker), a short story for a collection that will be put out by Novelists Inc, another Shareem for Ellora’s Cave….plus so many other things I want to get started on! I’m frantically finishing up things for this year, plus I’m frantically writing all the books for next year! I guess you could say I was frantic. J There’s a lot in store. My websites will spell it all out, especially my “coming soon” page. (see http://www.jennifersromances.com
