Jen Naumann grew up in southern Minnesota as an addict of such flicks as Indiana Jones and The Goonies until she discovered John Hughes, and spent her high school days locked away writing love stories with a sci-fi twist. Married to a farmer in southern Minnesota, she tries to follow the madness of her four active children while balancing an imagination that never shuts down.

As the author of CHEATING DEATH, SHYMERS, AND PARANORMAL KEEPERS, she writes stories with strong female leads who have a good sense of humor and tend to fall in love despite their better judgment. Also writing steamy adult romance under pen name Jennifer Ann (http://www.goodreads.com/authorjennif...). For more on Jen visit her website www.JenNaumann.net.

Cover Reveal: Kendare Blake's MORTAL GODS

Here it is! Awesome, right?

If you follow my blog, you already know I'm a pretty big fan of Kendare Blake's work (it doesn't hurt that she's originally from Minnesota but was smart enough to move somewhere warmer). I recently reviewed her newest release Antigoddess , and just received word that she's revealing the cover for the second book in the series, Mortal Gods. Of course when she offere Read more of this blog post »

“As I was escorted outside by the officers, my friends looked back at me with blank expressions. I don’t think they knew what to say to me. I had lied to them about my home life. They had always been there for me and probably would have understood if I had told them the truth from the start, but it was too late. All the lies I had told them about having a perfect family had been shattered by that one incident.”
Jen Naumann, What I've Done

“I want to get lost in other worlds and let my imagination travel beyond this life I know.”
Jen Naumann, Shymers

“You know that feeling when everyone around you is happy and you feel like you're standing back to watch them from afar? Like you're in this crappy little theatre all by yourself, watching the lives of other people who are totally fabulous? Yeah, that's me.”
Jen Naumann, Cheating Death
