I live 25 miles from NYC and so know some families who lost loved ones. I could see the smoke of the towers from the commuter train tracks near my home. At that time, I just allowed myself to grieve and mourn with the rest of America. In time, I saw that the sales of romance novels rose exponentially. It seems that folks in the USA needed an escape into a story that assured that the good guys won and that the hero and heroine earned a happily ever after. This was very affirming to my work and helped me so much as I got back to work. (less)

As an adult I'm more terrified by the Leanan-Sidhe, a vampire muse. My notion was to make her draw energy, instead of blood, causing any man she sleeps with to lose some of his life. Then I thought it would be even more interesting if she did not know what she was and if only werewolves (her natural enemy) were immune to her terrible power.(less)

Check out my very own Everest summit picture courtesy of comedian John Oliver of This Week Tonight.
Mr. Oliver thought it was ridiculous to crowd Everest and created a quick and easy way get a photo of yourself at the top. So, I have avoided the risk and still get all of the bragging rights with none of the effort.

“Ellen Louise, you've done the sensible thing all your life. Now's the time to follow your heart."
"What if I do that and he still turns me down?"
"What if you don't and you never know?”
Jenna Kernan, The Last Cahill Cowboy

“Dang it, Chance. You been here one day and you killed a man and split another one's skull open. I got enough to do without you adding more work."
Chance kept his tone level. "He drew on me."
"Why were you over in the Badlands in the first place?"
"You know why."
Bowie glared, then lowered his voice. "Think you can get through a day without killing someone?"
"Don't know. It's early yet.”
Jenna Kernan, The Last Cahill Cowboy

“You saved our lives, back there."
He leaned his mouth a few inches from hers. "You want to show me your gratitude?"
Ellie moved closer and rested her hands on the great expanse of Chance's broad chest. His mouth twitched in what might have been an unpracticed smile that shot straight through her like a ray of sunlight. She gave him the tight smile she saved for difficult guests, then whispered to him.
"Not if you were the last man in Texas.”
Jenna Kernan, The Last Cahill Cowboy

Oh, you're welcome, Mikky. I see you are reading Bound By Darkness. That looks interesting. Have you started it yet?

I just added HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE by Frost based on a recommendation of one of the readers groups here. I see you've read that one and like it. Maybe that should be next on my list.

I still am learning GoodReads and posting is a little confusing to me. Not sure how to write someone, only how to reply. :-P

Jenna Kernan Austin. Well, well. You have drifted far. I'm well and doing great. Working on a new Nocturne now and waiting on edits for the next Nocturne (Beauty's Beast 01/2013) and copy edits on a new Western. Busy, busy! But I sure do remember the first time I ever signed a book...yours!
