Jennifer Willis loves tales of magickal mayhem, unlikely adventure, and playful intrigue.

An admitted sci-fi nerd and urban fantasy fan, she is the author of the Valhalla urban fantasy series and the M.A.R.S. science fiction romance series. When she’s not hiking, knitting, baking, star-gazing, or reading like a fiend, she spends her time bringing enchantment to the world. She is also the writer behind the Northwest Love Stories feature in The Oregonian and has a byline in the Hugo Award-winning Women Destroy Science Fiction from Lightspeed.

She lives in Oregon with her dude, their dog, a couple of cats, and possibly a family of raccoons residing under the house.

You don't have to be afraid of writing or worry that you don't have a right to do it. When I go back and look at my earlier work, I can see in that stiff prose how nervous and restricted I was, because I hadn't yet gotten comfortable with what I was doing. That's a major piece of finding your voice as a writer, just understanding that an urge to write or to tell a story is the permission to do it.(less)

I’ve been starting a lot of books and then putting them down within the space of a few chapters. I didn’t use to consign so many books to the DNF pile. Maybe it’s the summer heat (or illness and pain) making me irritable, or maybe I’m becoming more discernible and more protective of my time. […]

Really enjoyed this last installment in Centanni's Reluctant Werewolf Chronicles. Though this was a shorter read, it was heavy on action and intrigue. I'm sad to come to the conclusion of this series, but it was a fun and satisfying journey.
