Beverley: Who are your favorite heroes, and why?
Jenna: My favorite fictional heroes are Mr. Darcy (Pride & Prejudice), Edward Cullen (Twilight), and a hero from an old, out of print book: Geraint (The Man On The White Horse).
Beverley: Tell me about the heroes in your book/s.
Jenna: My heroes are basically good men, but they have flaws. That’s what makes a book interesting, right? A man needs the love of a good woman to become the person both he and she knows he can be. That’s why I write romance!
Beverley: How do you develop the characteristics for your heroine?
Jenna: To be honest, the physical characteristics of my heroes are always attributes that would attract me: dark hair, blue eyes, always six feet or taller, sometimes with an adorable English accent.
Beverley: How long have you been writing?
Jenna: I’ve been writing since I discovered that my mother’s sweet Harlequin novels weren’t sexy enough for me and decided to write my own!
Beverley: What gets your creative juices flowing?
Jenna: The quickest way to get my creative juices flowing is to give me a rum and coke and ask me “What If…” That’s always the springboard for my ideas, LOL!
Beverley: Where do you do most of your writing?
Jenna: I am lucky to have a private room in my house when I can retreat, hang the “Do Not Disturb – Writer At Work” sign on my doorknob and get to work on my latest novel.
Beverley: Who would you love most to meet 'in person' and why?
Jenna: I would love to meet Anne Rice. I’ve never written a vampire romance, but I love her hero Lestat and her Vampire Chronicles series, and I admire her determination to get those first books published despite many rejections.
Beverley: What are you working on now?
Jenna: I have three books out in my slightly-futuristic erotic romance series The Tau Cetus Chronicles: Programmed To Please, Programmed To Protect, and Programmed For Power. This has been a fascinating world for me to explore (sex robots and police agents working to keep their world safe) and I’m currently writing book 4 in the series. The first book, Programmed To Please, is currently “free” if you’d like to check out the series!
