About this author

I'm a West Australian author of coastal romances that celebrate the joy of falling in love and the freedom of choosing to follow your heart.

I'm also a huge re-reader. Some of my favourite authors include Terry Pratchett, Jayne Ann Krentz, Shelly Laurenston and Ilona Andrews.



daisy delight


A Daisy Week is joyous. Such a great way to launch my Flower Fortunes. Every Monday I’ll be consulting the flowers to find out what the week will bring. Then I’ll tell you.


Daisies are happy flowers. They open their petals for sunshine and delight in the day. But they fade fast.


So this is a week to keep your eyes open. It’ll be a week filled with snatches of happiness — you have to unfurl your...

I've known how awesome JK's writing is since we had steampunk stories in the same anthology, A Clockwork Christmas, a couple of years (or more?) ago. But I had no idea she could make driving a speedboat sexy!

Jenny Schwartz is reading In Bed with the Competition: So looking forward to this. JK is a great romance writer. Real characters, strong plot and sexiness ;)

I bought this because of the cute cover and title. So sue me! I'm shallow.

The story was as cute as the title which made it an easy read.

Thank you! "Excited" doesn't even come close to describing how I feel. I have to ration !!! or they'd take over my every post.

So happy!!! ;)


Harlequin Books Hi Jenny. Almost time for your release. Congrats!

Jenny Schwartz Hi Steph, thanks for accepting the friend invite! So scary asking.

Japan must be so much more exciting than Canberra. I'm in Perth now, but I lived in Canberra about ten years ago. The people are great and well, I quite like country towns, so I enjoyed Canberra, too. But it's definitely not exciting. Still, I enjoyed being able to say I lived in the Australian capital and kangaroos really did jump through the streets :)


message 6: by Steph

Steph Hi Jenny, Where in Australia are you? We just moved from there. We were in Canberra, not exciting but a lot of fun. We miss everything about AU, but the cost of living! LOL!

Thanks for the friendvite. :)

Jenny Schwartz I am such a computer dumbie. Took forever just to change my profile photo. *sigh*


Aprille Yes, life has a tendency to do that. Congrats on the novella by the way.
I was looking forward to reading more of TD, I thought it was a very interesting concept.
My writing is going ok, I've trundled down a different track with it now; started a new story.
Good to hear from you :)

Hi Renee

Thanks for asking! Unfortunately, the answer is no time soon. Life has caught up with me. I haven't even had a chance to catch up here on Goodreads. I have a novella coming out with Carina Press soon and I'm writing its sequel.

The Divide is likely hanging fire an awfully long time.

Hope your writing is going well? :)


Aprille May I ask when the next chapter of The Divide is expected? :)

Jenny Schwartz Looking around, getting comfortable, metaphorically putting feet on the coffee table (don't worry, it's an old and battered one, needs sanding and repainting). Very neat to vote on "anticipated books". Like being a kid and waiting for Christmas, swapping wish lists with friends.
