Growing up in Tennessee, Miranda Kenneally dreamed of becoming an Atlanta Brave, a country singer (cliché!), or a UN interpreter. Instead she writes, and works for the State Department in Washington, D.C., where George W. Bush once used her shoulder as an armrest. Miranda loves Twitter, Star Trek and her husband.

To write a full-length sequel, I'd have to create some drama, and I don't really want to create any more drama for Jordan and Sam Henry because they are happy! Also, Sam and Jordan both play big roles in JESSE'S GIRL. Thanks for your question!(less)

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Well, you missed out on some important protocol, Ella. You can't stand between a Texan and his power tools. We like them. Big ones that drain the national grid. We also like truck-stop breakfasts, large moving objects, Monday night football, and the missionary position. We don't drink light beer, drive Smart cars, or admit to knowing the names of more than about five or six colors. And we don't wax our chests, ever.”
Lisa Kleypas, Smooth Talking Stranger

“If you weren't driving, I'd kiss you senseless," I tell him.
He swerves to the side of the road and stops the car abruptly.
"Not driving any more.”
Melina Marchetta, On the Jellicoe Road

“Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.”
Charles M. Schulz

“You have to kiss me," I find myself saying.
"Yeah." He leans closer. "I do.”
Huntley Fitzpatrick, My Life Next Door
