About this author

Jennifer Shirk has a bachelor degree in pharmacy-which has in NO WAY at all helped her with her writing career. But she likes to point it out, since it shows romantic-at-hearts come in all shapes, sizes, and mind-numbing educations.

She writes sweet (and sometimes even funny) romances for Samhain Publishing, Avalon Books/Montlake Romance and now Entangled Publishing. She won third place in the RWA 2006 NYC's Kathryn Hayes Love and Laughter Contest with her first book, THE ROLE OF A LIFETIME. Recently, her novel SUNNY DAYS FOR SAM won the 2013 Golden Quill Published Authors Contest for Best Traditional Romance.

Lately she's been on a serious exercise kick. But don't hold that against her.

Feel free to follow her on Twitter or become a friend...more


Happy Monday!!

It's good to be back! I hope everybody had a wonderful Easter.

The kiddo had spring break last week so we ended up going to Moon Palace resort in Cancun.

I normal don't like all-inclusive places but I have to say, the food was really really good and the grounds and service were excellent. Oh, and the weather was absolutely perfect. With the harsh winter we all had, I SO NEEDED some... Read more of this blog post »

“Special. Cute. Friends. He wished she'd just cut his testicles off and be done with it already. Depending on the next adjective she chose for him, he would either qualify as a card-carrying member of Emasculated Men's Club or a Muppet. No wonder he avoided love for as long as he had. When it went unrequited, it truly sucked.”
Jennifer Shirk, A Little Bit Cupid

“Wait a minute,” Sandra said, sounding skeptical. “You were really stuck?”

Things were starting to get worse.

Her mouth dropped open and she began to laugh—the kind of laugh that would have been music to his ears if she were laughing with him and not at him.

Things were definitely worse.”
Jennifer Shirk, The Role of a Lifetime

“Ta-ta?” she asked Jack, once Jessica was out of earshot. “I can't believe you went out with a woman who uses that interjection.”
“I can't believe I'm ‘going out’ with a woman who uses the word ‘interjection.”
Jennifer Shirk, Fiance by Fate

I know. So sad. I live near where the hurricane landed. It seems like we were pretty lucky compared to all the towns north of that.

I think it's more than 27 now! Wow, when you recommend a book, people listen. LOL

You were way up there in the state! I went to college in New Brunswick (Rutgers)--just a little south of that.

Oh, thank you! I'm a BIG Harlequin fan, so I'll check out your profile often.

The good thing about pharmacy is that you'll always have a job. It's pretty recession-proof. Good luck with it!

Harlequin Books Hi Jennifer, I'm pleased to meet you and look forward to discussing books with you. If you ever have any questions about any of the titles on my shelves or about eHarlequin.com and all it has to offer, please ask. I'll be happy to answer. I’ll also have Harlequin news updates on my profile on a regular basis so be sure to stop by to keep up on everything Harlequin.

Just a coincidence, I started my college education with the hopes of becoming a pharmacist.


Penelope Marzec Thanks for adding me as a friend!
