Ah, now that’s a hard question, seeing as I don’t even really know, lol! I guess I’ll give the usual blurb. I was born in Arizona, but have spent the better part of my life in Wisconsin. While I enjoy living close to my family, my heart longs to live in the South – or anywhere where the winters are warmer, and I hope to someday get there. I love writing, and try to dedicate as much of my free time to it (ha! what free time?). If I’m not typing away on my laptop, you’ll find me with my nose buried in a book, or with my loving fiancée debating on what movie to watch and the never ending back and forth decision of what we should have for dinner. I love spending time with my family and fiancée, cuddling with my dog and two cats, and laughing as much as possible (cuz I like to think I'm funny :-D).
Some little tidbits about me are – I love horses, dogs and cats, I have a really big sweet-tooth, and I've been told I like to talk with my hands (insert hand gestures here).
2-What was it that made you want to write about gay characters and MM novels?
It was reading about it that turned me toward MM writing. I started off writing straight romance until I came across a book that piqued my interest of MM romance (which at the time I didn’t even know there were MM books) – it was all men, men, and more men from there on!
3-How do you come up with such interesting gay storylines such as in the Finding Home Series?
I couldn’t even tell you. My mind is CONSTANTLY coming up with storylines – I have no control over it and absolutely everything inspires new stories. I could grab a popsicle out of the fridge and suddenly have a whole novel swarm my head from it. I take that one object and create a specific scene involving it and then the whole story falls into place. I’ve got thousands of potential books floating around in my mind.
4-Was it difficult coming up with the story of Vampires and Paranormal?
No. I’ve always loved vampires—and all things paranormal and fantasy really—so it was no surprise when I thought up the Finding Home series.
5-Your fans love your characters so much, what do these characters mean to you?
They mean everything to me. They are my friends, inspiration, and
motivation. As more stories come along, it will always be my guys from my Finding Home series that’ll keep me going. :)
6-When did you first realize that you were a writer?
I guess I’d have to say July of 2010—that’s when I sat down and actually wrote a full manuscript. Throughout my childhood I wrote here and there, but never thought anything of it, I just had fun doing it. I stopped writing when I was a teen, but that summer of 2010 I sat down and started typing out one of the many stories flooding my mind and I’ve been doing it ever since. Now, no matter what day job I work, writing will always be my career.
7-What genre of writing would you classify yourself with?
Fantasy, because that’s the world I live in—or at least the way I imagine it. ;)
8-What's the most difficult element of being an author today?
In the beginning I would’ve said promoting, but now it’s hands-down writers block. I suffer from it big time and all the time!
9-What advice would you give an author, just starting out, who wants to write gay fiction?
Tons of authors say this and I’m with them 100% - NEVER GIVE UP! If writing is what you love, then write. While numerous things may get in your way—publishers turning down your manuscript, readers leaving down-right hateful reviews, (and worst) people you know and/or love never showing support—don’t let anything keep you from your passion!
10-Where would you like to see your career in 10 years from now?
I would love to be writing fulltime. For now I’ll just trudge along through my day job like so many other authors. :(
11-If a reader hasn't read any of your books yet, which one would you recommend?
Well, seeing as right now I only have three out, and they’re a part of a series, I would recommend the first book, Pavarus. :D
12-What kind of research do you undergo when writing for this Paranormal genre?
I HATE doing research. When a story pops into my head I just want to sit down and write. So luckily, the only research I had to do was to find out a
few details and locations of certain cities and/or states when my guys would visit Earth. Since my series takes place in another realm I had the pleasure of being able to make up whatever the hell I wanted, which turned out to be waaaaay harder than doing a little research (I still hate doing research though, lol!).
13-What is something that you would like your readers to know about you?
That I’m a slow writer. I’ve gotten so many emails and whatnot asking when my next book is coming out, and I feel bad when I have to tell them that I haven’t the slightest clue. I wish I could be one of those writers that can sit down and write every day, but that’s just not me. I’m happy if I write twice a week.
14-What do you want to be remembered for most?
I figure some people might say they’d wanted to be remembered for their career, success, family, etc. But I just want everyone to know that throughout all the ups and downs of being an author, I’ve been happy. I love what I do, and I love all of my wonderful readers and fans.
15-What do your readers mean to you and how interactive are you with them?
My readers mean everything to me—without them my books are just wraiths sitting on a shelf. I create the story, but it is my readers that bring them to life.
I wish I could say I’m all chatty-chatty with my readers, but the truth is I’m not very good at that kind of stuff. In person with my friends I can talk their ear off, but online… I have a blog and Facebook and whatnot—and I really do try to interact with it all as much as possible—but I’m just not the social type with stuff like that. My mind goes blank most of the time.
16-Do you have a Philosophy by which you live?
My morals and values run long and deep, but I truly try to live by the golden rule – Do unto others as you would want done unto you – it’s a classic, but it’s my favorite.
17-What is your favourite curse word?
Hands-down it would be fuck. I really am one of those people that could make a sailor blush. Of course, when I’m around family (well, some of them), kids, or at work, my loose vocabulary is on a leash, but in my own home I
almost always say fuck in at least one of every three sentences. It’s actually really hard for me to tame it back in my writing, because even in my head fuck is all over the please.
18-What was the last book you read and your thoughts on it?
I actually stepped over to the straight and young adult side and read P.C Cast’s House of Night series—well, I’m only on book three. But I love this series!
19-If you could come back as any animal or mammal, what would it be and why?
A house cat, because I am one laaaazy person. Granted, I have a vitamin deficiency that causes my lack of energy, but I still think I’d be lazy nonetheless. :)
20-Lastly, any hints on your next book that you might be working on?
I am slowly making my way through the fourth book in my Finding Home series. And all I’ll say about it is – yes, everyone, it’s Larken’s turn to find his HEA! Woohoo!

GMR 5 Star Review
Eli has lusted after Keddrick from the moment the vampire stepped through the portal and into Earth. He had desperately wanted to follow along when Keddrick returned to Pavarus, but it wasn’t allowed—not to mention Eli was under the impression that Keddrick was straight. Four years later his wish has come true, but not in the way he wanted. Barely escaping death by the hands of Wayland, head of the human council on Earth, Eli flees to Pavarus in search of help. The line of events that get him there release a hidden secret deep inside him he never knew existed, and will soon change his life forever.
Keddrick’s restraint towards Eli is being seriously tested, and every day Eli stays with him at the coven, it gets harder. He wants to keep his distance, but at the same time he wants to do everything he can to please Eli. As time goes on, he feels his resolve slowly crumble, his love for the man too strong to ignore. When Keddrick finds out about Wayland’s threat on his and Eli’s life, he is determined to stop the madman anyway he can, even if that means going against Eli’s pleas for him not to.
Through blood and tears, years of love and moments of betrayal, can these two men find their way through the hardships and into a life of happiness in each other’s arms?

Keddrick is doing his best to fight off his feelings towards Eli but he is being tested every time he is around him. He does everything to make Eli happy and safe and soon his restraint will be too much for even Keddrick to handle and he will have to face his love and desire for Eli. Will their burning love be enough to have a HEA? Will Wayland destroy the years of desire these men have felt in secret for each other?
I loved the secondary characters such as Remus and Wesley and where the author took these characters as it added to the story so nicely and I loved reading about them. I am really hoping that the author writes a story about Zane and Larken as I feel their story is not finished and was so much fun read them. I am so hoping that one day Zane wakes up and realizes his true feelings for Larken. I loved that Jennifer didn't write the typical vampire paranormal book here and had a great and unique spin on this genre as it was so refreshing to read. The characters of Keddrick and Eli was a beautiful coupling of pure love and loyalty that these men had for each other.
I enjoyed the writing of this author and the way she was so detailed and how she brought the beautiful and unique world together was done so brilliantly and well written. I actually felt I was living in this world and completely captivated by this fast paced and riveting story. I have always loved this genre and now because of this series I love it even more. I couldn't recommend this novel MORVEA and the entire series...Finding Home by Jennifer Wright enough!!! Everyone needs to read it!!!!
Eli gasped when another sharp pain sliced through his head. Groaning, he clutched at his skull as bright lights blinded his vision.
And with a flash, images flooded his mind like an old, silent picture show.
Eli standing in his office with three men.
Rick, Larry and him tied up in an old, abandoned warehouse.
Wayland standing before him, accusing him and Keddrick of trying to rule Earth. Wayland confessing his own plans to rule Earth once he and Keddrick were ‘out of his way’.
Larry dead—shot in the head.
Him and Rick escaping.
Eli getting shot and Rick face down on the pavement—dead.
Eli lifting his hand to ward off his enemy.
The man hurtling backwards into the street by an unseen force—then the car slamming into his body.
Eli sucked in a deep breath when his vision had cleared and he tried his hardest not to cry out.
“Eli?” Keddrick sounded alarmed, his words loud in Eli’s ear.
This time he did cry out when Keddrick grabbed his arm. The pain from the vampire’s touch had Eli jumping out of his chair and stumbling backwards till his butt hit the back of the couch. When a few of the men stood, he yelled, “Stay away from me!” The thought of anyone touching him made his skin burn.
“Eli, what is wrong?”
Keddrick’s words were more forceful this time, but Eli ignored them as a new surge exploded through his body. Every cell inside him felt like it was coming to life, vibrating and roaring for release.
He barely heard Keddrick’s order for someone to get Isa. Fuck that! He didn’t want that witch anywhere near him. This was all her fault anyway. The side effect of whatever she’d given him was wreaking havoc on his body. A hum sounded in his ears, and everything around him soon faded out as the hum became piercing.
He clutched at his head again and screamed.
The sound of Eli’s screams cut at Keddrick’s soul. He wanted to go to his mate, to comfort him, but Eli’s warning had him rooted in place. It was hard, though, when the tears started streaming down Eli’s face. He stepped forward, ready to pull Eli into his arms anyway, when Aliam burst into the room with Isa.
When Aliam dropped her before him, she covered her ears and yelled angrily, “What is the meaning of this?”
He didn’t bother apologising, just said, “I need more of that potion you gave to Eli last night.”
“No!” she said. Keddrick growled at her. “No, he said he didn’t want my help,” she said as she pointed to Eli.
Eli’s screams continued to fill the air.
“Damn it, woman! Can’t you see he’s in pain?” Keddrick closed the little distance that was between them. “Help him. Now!” The words were so forceful the walls seemed to vibrate.
Isa’s eyes widened and she took a step back. “I—”
She was cut off by Wesley’s gasp. When Keddrick turned to look at him, his jaw dropped. The maps and papers that’d been scattered across the table now floated in the air. Keddrick glanced around the room, taking in all the items that hovered over the surfaces they’d once sat on. He flinched when Eli’s screams suddenly became louder, forcing everyone to cover their ears. The furniture began to shake before it too started to rise up—up and up till Keddrick could see the bottom of the couch.
Keddrick looked at Eli. The man’s face was red, his eyes squeezed shut, his head thrown back as his fingers clenched in his hair.
Suddenly, Eli’s screams stopped, and everything in the room came crashing down around them.
Keddrick reached Eli just before he hit the floor. Gathering his mate into his arms, he rushed to lie Eli down on the couch, amazed it hadn’t broken.
He cupped Eli’s face in his hands. “Eli, baby, wake up.”

GMR 5 Star Review
Zane was meant to be a warrior—end of story. Though he may not have had the most pleasant life living at the coven, he still loved being there. But the steadiness of his world came to a halt all within one day's events. A man he never saw coming has pushed the boundaries of what little normalcy he has, and learning of a secret love is just confusing him even more. Zane has never felt more torn on what he should be feeling…and for whom. Though if he assumed having two men plaguing his every waking thought was hard enough, learning of the danger his mother is in nearly has his head spinning off into another dimension.
The leader of the Dráguns is threatening to take everything away from him, his best friend is slipping further and further away from him, and a little dragon is managing to get under his skin in more ways than one. Sorting out what he has to do, what he wants, and what's right for him will be the biggest challenge he's ever been faced with. Will he follow his heart or will he take the easy path…or is the easy path the right path to begin with?

The Draguns leader is trying to take everything away from Zane! His BFF is moving further and further away from him and a young dragon is getting to close for comfort. Now Zane has to figure out what he actually wants in life. Boer is a dragon and kidnapped by the vampires to reveal secrets which he apparently doesn't have and this changes everything in Zane's organized life. Now that his bff Larken is in love with him and his mate Bo is too much for the emotionally disconnected Zane to deal with so he plans to distance himself emotionally in order to handle everything that is being thrown his way.
I loved this novel so much so that the author had me on the edge of my seat through the entire novel. I couldn't predict what was about to happen next and that is a great quality in writing. Jennifer's writing is simply brilliant and how she comes up with these stories, characters, realms and unique worlds in this fascinating genre. I recommend this novel, Airos and the series...Finding Home by Jennifer Wright!
Bo waited for Wesley to knock on the bathroom door but nearly shot up out of the water when Zane came bursting in.
“Dear gods, Zane, you nearly scared me half to death.” He let out a deep breath and placed his hand over his chest, his heart thundering beneath his touch. “So, how did everything go with…?” He trailed off as Zane stormed over to him, the heat in his eyes making Bo sink down into the water a little.
“What are you doing?”
Bo felt so small as the vampire towered over him, but he wasn’t about to show the thin line of fear the man always seemed to make him feel. “What does it look like I’m doing? I’m bathing.”
Stepping closer, his hands fisted at his sides, Zane growled out, “That’s not what I mean and you know it.”
Bo glanced away. I can do this. I can be strong.
Turning back, Bo gave Zane a look of innocence. “What?”
Zane’s lips briefly thinned out in a tight line. “Why are you still here?”
“You heard Augustus, he didn’t think it was a good idea to travel,” he replied, swishing the water around him as if nothing was wrong—as if he didn’t notice the vampire’s rising annoyance.
Suddenly Zane was at his side, kneeling on the floor next to the tub. “That’s bullshit! You risked your life earlier by climbing down the side of a castle—all so you could get away from here. Then you had every opportunity to go home earlier, but you didn’t. Why?”
Bo glanced away again. This wasn’t going at all the way he’d imagined. Yes, he had hoped to talk to Zane privately, but he’d never thought it’d be like this. Steeling his shoulders, he said, “Yes, I tried to escape, but that was when I had thought that I was still a prisoner. Keddrick made it clear that I am now a guest, so I felt it was best to take Augustus’ advice—for my own well-being.”
Zane’s eyes narrowed. “I don’t believe you. I saw the way you looked at me. Why did you look at me like that? What were you thinking?”
Gods, this is not at all how I imagined it going. “Can you please hand me a towel?”
A muscle flexed alongside the vampire’s jaw and he made no movement to do as Bo had asked.
Huffing, Bo got up and stepped out of the tub then retrieved a towel from a nearby shelf. He ignored the small growl that echoed in the room. All he had wanted was a chance to get to know Zane, to find out what this bond between them meant. He knew Zane had said he didn’t want Bo here, but he hadn’t expected the vampire to act this way at his staying for just one more evening.
“Damn it, Bo, answer me! Why are you still here?”
Bo spun around to face him. “Why do you care!” he shouted. “What does it matter if I’m here another night?”
“Because you confuse me!” Zane hollered back.
The vampire almost seemed surprised by what he’d said, but the look was gone too quickly for Bo to be sure.
Zane rubbed his hands over his face then let out a frustrated sigh. “My life was balanced before, and since you’ve been here you’ve done nothing but trip me up.” He glared down at Bo. “I’m doing things that I never would have done before. I’m saying things that I would have never said. And I can’t seem to stop it. It’s all because of you.”
A fire ignite inside Bo and he glared right back at him. “Well, I’m sorry that I messed with your precious structure here.” He stepped forward and
Zane took a step back, his eyes beginning to widen the closer Bo got to him. “Believe me, that was not my intention at all.” Bo kept advancing on Zane, and Zane kept stepping back until he bumped into the counter. “But don’t worry, I’ll be out of your hair first thing tomorrow evening, because trust me when I say that I don’t want to be here just as much as you don’t want me to be!”
He was now mere inches from Zane—practically standing on his tip-toes so he could at least get somewhat face to face with him. Anger raced through his veins as he waited, preparing himself for Zane to yell back at him.
Bo gasped when Zane’s hand was suddenly around the nape of his neck, pulling him closer, closing what little distance was between them. He stood there frozen in place as Zane kissed him, completely shocked by the vampire’s actions.
The kiss was bruising and over within moments. At first Bo stared up at Zane in disbelief and confusion, but that quickly melted away at the sight of the passion in the vampire’s eyes.
“Dear gods, what you do to me,” Zane growled, then kissed him again.
Some little tidbits about me are – I love horses, cats, and dogs, I have a really big sweet-tooth, and I've been told I like to talk with my hands (insert hand gestures here).
