Jenna has been reading and writing historical romance since she was a teenager. A romantic
herself, she has always loved a dark side to the genre, a twist, suspense, a surprise. She tries to
incorporate all of these elements into her own stories. She lives in Virginia with her family and
a small menagerie of pets. When not reading or writing, she indulges her passion for the theatre,
working with local theatres as a director. She often feels she is directing her characters on their
own private stage.

She has equated her writing to an addiction to chocolate because once she starts she just can’t
stop.

They …moreMy very favorite fictional couple is Lady Diana Arrandale and Beowulf Malloran, Marquess of Rothgar from Jo Beverley's Georgian/Malloran series. They seem to me to be the perfect historical power couple who overcame almost impossible odds to marry. Witty, passionate, and strong-minded, they are the best suited couple I think that Ms. Beverley wrote. They seem very reminiscent of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Mr. And Mrs. Smith, especially in one scene where they are standing back-to-back in a road, pistols at the ready, waiting for the bad guys to come. :)(less)

I'll make excuses to not write and that's when I sense there may be something holding me back from writing. The remedy I've found for that is not to force it. I have to reach a critical mass in order to sit down and write and if it's not there, then I can't bring myself to do it. But when it's time, like that final drop of water into the surface tension of an almost overflowing glass, I sit down and the words just pour out.(less)

The Writer’s Eye: Plotting

 


[image error]


Anyone who knows me knows that I am a plotter through and through. I cannot begin to write a book, novella, or short story without a detailed outline that shows me exactly where I’m going on my journey through my book.


I’ve always been a very linear focused person, in anything I do. I begin at point A and don’t stop until I get to point Z. I once wrote a novella in which I
