Interview: Jennifer Laurens

Today I have my first author interview with the wonderful Jennifer Laurens!

Here is a little bit about her. Taken from Goodreads.

Jennifer, aka JM Warwick was born and raised in Southern California and her hometown of Palos Verdes Estates flavors her books: A Season of Eden and An Open Vein. She doesn't limit herself to writing one genre, and was the first to author four romance novels centered around the popular sport of ballroom dancing. Now, she focuses on writing young adult. She has YA novels published under her YA romance name of Jennifer Laurens: Falling for Romeo, Magic Hands, Nailed and the Heavenly series: Heavenly ( 2009) Penitence (2010) and Absolution (2010) A Season of Eden and Overprotected. Two are under her other YA author name: JM Warwick - A Season of Eden and An Open Vein. Jennifer lives in Utah and has 6 children.

Now for my interview with her:

What is your favorite book?
Most recently - Damage by Josephine Hart. Magnificent.

How old were you the first time you wrote a story?
5th grade.

What do you like most about being a writer?
Sharing what's in my head and heart with readers.

Do you know anyone who is autistic?
My daughter. Heavenly is the story of our family learning to cope, accept and live with autism and the effects on each family member.

What do you like about angels? and what compelled you to write about them?
My beliefs about angels are pretty straight forwardly portrayed in HEAVENLY: that they exist to help us and they are about doing good. My daughter with autism ( on whom the character Abria is based ) has had so many close calls I can only attribute her safety to the fact that there are people watching over her that love her. People other than us!

What is the best Halloween costume you have ever seen?
So many! I can't pick one, but my favorite of MINE was Smoky the Bear when I was 9 years old.

If you could be anything supernatural what would it be?
Time traveler.

It's always a pleasure to get to know a little more about the author of fantastic books. Thanks so much for joining me, Jennifer!
