Jennifer Jennings Interview part 2

Part 2 of the interview with Jennifer Jennings



As A writer do you have any authors you look up to or evan any that helped you along? Who do you follow ad read when not writing books?


Al Boudreau, a great writer/editor, has been my hero.  He also happens to be my partner. His daily support and enthusiasm have helped me through the rough days when all I wanted to do was give up. It is so important to have proper encouragement. 

 I agree having the right encouragement is very important.

I am inspired by many Indie authors and try to read their works. there are some amazingly talented writers out there yet to be discovered by the masses.

Jennifer, that was one of the reasons I started Julies Book review.  Getting these newer authors extra exposure and getting these awesome books to readers I know will love them.


Do you have any advice to give aspiring writers?

For me, It's important to read books in the genre in which I write: mysteries. I've learned so much from reading other authors works.  It's an education. I take notes whenever I'm inspired by something new. The second most important thing is to find an excellent editor. All writers need them.


Editing is very important. Of all the books I have read 70% are from new or newer authors. You can defiantly tell who has used an editor or has a good one. In fact you can have a GREAT story but if it is not edited or not edited well.  It can make the difference of having a best seller or a book that falls to the way side. So follow Jennifer's advice! Get a GREAT editor!

Of your published books out, is there a favorite? favorite scene? favorite character? would you like to meet the character in real life?


The third book in the Sarah Woods Mystery Series. An Island of Illusions, is my favorite because the story takes place in Hawaii (my second home).  One of my favorite characters is Carter, a private detective. he is a cool guy with a dry sense of humor.  I also like Max, the love interest of the main character. I wouldn't mind meeting that sexy character in real life. 


Besides Sarah, of course, mine would have to be Max.  I really hope I see much more of him in future books! LOL!!


Can you share some interesting bits on your new book coming out? What can we expect, sex, violence, murder, mayhem....



That's all for today folks.  Come back for the final part to the interview with Jennifer. Remember the contest is still going. comment on the post with e-mail address and follow my blog to win!  Good Luck!

  1. Wow, the author's partner is also her greatest writing inspiration and hero? How nice is that? I want one of those!

  2. I find the idea of a partner both exciting and scary at the same time. While it would be great while things are going well, what happens to the series if the partnership doesn't go well?
