Having this author respond to my request for an interview was quite a surprise. I couldn’t figure out if I was reading the messages correctly. I was thrilled to know that she was going to be on my blog, even if it was for a day. I’m so grateful for the ability to have her grace my page.
EK– My message to all the authors: Thank you so very much for being willing to sign up to do this interview. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to get to know you, share your thoughts, and highlight your work.
EK: What is your pen name? Jennifer Theriot
- Is it different from the name on your birth certificate? Only by my married surname 😉
- EK: Does your work fit into one genre? If not, tell us about it. If so, do the same.
Jennifer Theriot: I’d say my work is women’s contemporary romance and all of the books fit into that genre.
EK: What is the title of your most recent or upcoming release?
Jennifer Theriot: I’ll be releasing Out of the Box Everlasting within the next month or so. (3rd in my Out of the Box series). In December, I released Unwrapping Noel which was part of an anthology called Mischief Under the Mistletoe. I’ve got a sequel to Unwrapping Noel in the works.
EK: What inspired this work?
Jennifer Theriot: I’m an avid romance reader and there just weren’t many books out there about women my age (I’m 61). We still love a good romp in the hay, we’re young at heart and still have romantic feelings. I actually wrote the book on a dare from two of my close girlfriends. Don’t give me a dare, because I’ll do it 😉
EK: What is your favorite thing about writing?
Jennifer Theriot: Writing give you an outlet to express so many things. Creating new characters and having them speak to you is such an awesome feeling.
EK: Now for the fun stuff …
EK: What is your favorite snack while taking a much needed author break?
Jennifer Theriot: I ‘snack’ on a bottle of wine while writing.
EK: What is one of the craziest things you’ve done in your life?
Jennifer Theriot: Yikes! I can’t tell you that (<- LOL! Can’t blame a girl for trying)
EK: The house is on fire, what are you grabbing if your family is safe and sound?
Jennifer Theriot: My laptop, purse collection, jewelry and makeup
EK: What is your “go to” movie, book, or show?
Jennifer Theriot: I’m addicted to Bluebloods and NCIS. Tom Selleck and Mark Harmon are soooo sexy!
EK: Who is one of your favorite authors? Why?
Jennifer Theriot: Jacqueline Susann (I’m dating myself, I know but she’s the best!)
EK: Bonus => Have you ever read a book that had you questioning why you were having such a reaction to fictional characters? What book was it?
Jennifer Theriot: Probably one of the biggest reactions I’ve had to a fictional character was to the character Donovan from Diane Rinella’s Loves Forbidden Flower. It’s a very controversial topic and he gave me a bad case of angst…REALLY bad case. Another one was Kellan Kyle in SC Stephens Thoughtless series.
