Jennifer Sienes holds a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in education, but discovered life-experience is the best teacher. She loves Jesus, romance and writing—and puts it altogether in inspirational contemporary fiction. Her daughter’s TBI and brother’s suicide inspired two of her three novels. Although fiction writing is her real love, she’s had several non-fiction pieces published in anthologies including several in Chicken Soup for the Soul. She has two grown children and one very spoiled Maltese. California born and raised, she recently took a step of faith with her real-life hero and relocated to Tennessee.

Hello Lily,
I appreciate the offer of editor or proofreader, but I am blessed to have a wonderful critique team that does both. I also have editors that work with me through my publisher. As for reviews, I can never get enough of those!

I've wanted to be a writer since I was twelve because of my love for stories and reading. Although life happened and I took many detours on that road, including teaching middle school for years, here I am doing what I've dreamt of most of my life.(less)

Give yourself permission to fail at what you write. That's what editing is for.(less)

Advice from a Writer to a Writer

Becoming a writer has ruined me for reading fiction. From the time I can remember, I’ve always loved to get lost in a good book. Stories had the ability to take me from my uneventful life and plop me into an adventure. When we were little, my mom would take us to the library during the summer, and I could choose however many books I wanted. The only requirement was that I read them all before our

One of the things I love about reading is experiencing something new and fresh. I’m not one to enjoy formulaic writing, which is one reason I tend to shy away from pure romance. Too often, the story is predictable and stale. However, if I know there ...more
