Novelist Jennifer Jakes
Barbara Bettis’ popular blog series, Writers’ Wednesday
, continues! This week, fellow Ozarks Romance Authors member Jennifer Jakes is Barb’s guest.
To read the interview (including an excerpt from Jennifer’s book, “Rafe’s Redemption”), click HERE.
Jennifer Jakes describes herself as a chronic insomniac who got used to making up stories while waiting to fall asleep. “It was a lot more interesting than counting sheep. Maybe too interesting, because I started staying awake so I could figure out ‘what happened’ to my characters. For the sake of my health, I began writing the stories on paper – during the day. So far it’s working out pretty good:)”
“Rafe’s Redemption” was a 2010 Golden Heart finalist, grand prize winner in the Gateway to the Best contest, first place winner in the Gateway to the Best contest, and second place winner in ORA‘s Weta Nichols fiction contest.
In addition to ORA, Jennifer is a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and Missouri Romance Writers of America (MoRWA).
