Jennifer Burrows

What was the first book you ever wrote and what inspired you?
The first book I wrote was A Shot in the Dark. I had started off writing a non-fiction about the emergency department and health care field in general. I got bored and the Story of Josh and Laney popped in my head. I found writing fiction was much more fun.

Can you tell us about your work including titles and share your amazon links?
I currently have two books out. A Shot in the Dark and Into the Light. They are a complete series. Due to some publisher woes, A Shot in the Dark will be rereleased on Kindle in the beginning of August.

A Shot in the Dark is about a young moto crosser who suffers life threatening injuries while competing after the front tire of his bike falls off. He is brought to the emergency department where a handsome doctor (Josh) and nurse (Laney) try to save his life. Unbeknownst to Laney, Josh has been eying her for a long time. Unfortunately, she thinks he a pompous jerk.

While caring for Skyler (moto crosser), Laney and Josh for a bond and eventually a relationship. There are many twist and turns throughout the story including a stalker that begins to torment Laney. It’s a fast pace story that’s action packed.

Into the Light picks up where A Shot in the Dark left off. Laney is shot and Josh works to save her life. Laney is unconscious through most of the story. Josh has to deal with Laney’s narcissistic and self-serving mom who tries to drag Laney away. Will Josh be able to save Laney’s life? Will he be able to stop her mom from controlling Laney’s life? Find out.

Also, my newest release, Surrender is going to be released on July 30th. I’m really excited about this book. It’s already gotten some fantastic reviews. It’s about a woman (Katherine) who walks in on her fiancé cheating on her weeks before their wedding. She ends the relationship and decides to go on her honeymoon alone to find herself.

Katherine runs into a charming Italian man (Tony). Little does she know, Tony is using her to escape Italy after his family is murdered by the Italian cartel responsible for producing black market olive oil. Along the way, both develop unexpected feeling for one another and Tony quickly realizes, he’s putting Katherine in harms way. Will they be able to escape before the cartel finds them? Or will they become another set of victims?

Surrender on Good Reads:

What drew you in to the romance genre?
I love to read romance as an escape from my life. Sometimes I get bored with the same old story, rich guy meets poor girl, she struggles with accepting the relationship, but they end up living happily every after. I wanted to provide readers with romance and suspense/thriller. I like a good storyline that keeps me wanting to come back for more. Also, in each one of my books, I try to provide facts that make the reader feel smarter. I love reading books by Dan Brown because the stories are great, but I always feel smarter after reading them.

Is romance your favorite genre to read as well as write?
Yes. I primarily read romance, but I’m certainly open to other books. I read non-fiction, mystery, just about anything I find intriguing. I’ve never written anything but romantic thrillers, so I would have to say that’s my favorite to write.

Can you tell me something about yourself that may surprise your readers?
I’m a candy crush addict. I have finished the game and I’m waiting for new levels to be built. Yes, I know I have a problem. LOL!

Are you excited to be a part of the upcoming Ropin Romance event?
I’m very excited to be a part of this event and be amongst other fabulous authors.

What do you to to help with writers block?
Surprisingly exercise. If I just step away and go for a work out, I sort through things in my head. I come back with a clear direction of where I need to go.

If you had to choose three words to describe what type of writer you are what would they be?
Spontaneous, adventurous, down-to-earth.

What is your author pen name and do you have more than one?
I Just go by Jennifer Burrows. My dad always called me Jennifer when I was young. I always went by Jenny and as I got older, Jen. I told him he couldn’t call me Jennifer unless I became the president or an author. I never expected either to happen. When I was trying to think up a pen name, I was at a loss. Jennifer it was.

If you had to pick a favorite author who would it be?
Raine Miller. I love her books! Also, I just recently met her and she’s the nicest and most humble person.

Since many of the readers that will be seeing this interview and participating in the takeover will be new fans. If you had to describe your writing style and books in a single sentence what would it be?
I’m a writer who writes romantic thrillers that provoke emotions and leave you hanging on by the seat of your pants.
