Jennifer Crowfoot

Biography

Married with four children, and eleven grandchildren, Jennifer lives with her husband and bad-tempered Maltese terrier Beau, an assortment of chooks, finches and a French speaking Quarrion (or Cockatiel) in the beautiful Hunter Valley in rural N.S.W, Australia.

Before devoting herself to full-time writing, Jennifer worked in a variety of jobs over the years, from making burgers in a café, to working behind the counter in a small general store, to cleaning in a boutique B&B.

But she counts her greatest accomplishment as raising her children and watching them grow into responsible adults with children of their own.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes I most certainly do, although with the passage of time the memory has become rather...shall we say...hazy around the edges.
But certain points stick with me.

I was in primary school, I think I must have been about 8 or 9 years old and like every girl I knew — utterly and totally horse-mad. This particular day I'd sat myself out on the verandah and curled up in one of those wicker-type moon chairs — mine was a trendy 70's style black and white — and with my little squares of blank paper, a handful of coloured pencils and a story in my head I'd started.

Of course my story revolved around a horse and I believe it was a beautiful black horse just like the one in 'Black Beauty' the classic by Anna Sewell. I don't remember the plot — if there was much of one — but I do remember the excitement of writing and then illustrating it.
How do you approach cover design?
I always try and have a cover which reflects the essence of the story and its characters. All of my covers have been clues as to what is contained within and this was a deliberate action. I have tried to make them eye-catching because I know when I look for something to read a pretty, attractive cover will always catch my eye first.

Smashwords book reviews by Jennifer Crowfoot

  • Tristan's Loins on May 27, 2013

    Karolyn, I loved your story, and what a fantastic concept! Your story was perfectly and may I add, cleverly titled. The humour which revolved around 'Tristan's loins' and Selene's early descriptions of it had me giggling. The story flowed beautifully, the characters and their individual stories were believable and I was on the edge of my seat as I read waiting to see if things would work out for the two main characters. (I'll never look at my own characters the same now after reading this and I'll always be wondering if they're happy with how I've treated them.) Thank you for a wonderful and very sexy read, I enjoyed my time spent in Selene and Tristan's world and if I could, I'd give this story 10 stars.
  • The Dark God's Bride Trilogy, #2 on June 02, 2013

    I totally loved this story. I couldn't put it down and the worst part for me was when I came to the last page and realised that I'd finished. I can't wait to read the last instalment of this great story. I loved the sassy Amara and the Dark God/Summit was such a delicious bad boy with a heart of gold, and his sexiness simply oozed from the pages. *fanning face* I was thoroughly entertained from beginning to end, thank you.
  • The Dark God's Bride Trilogy, #1 on June 02, 2013

    This book was my introduction to Amara and Summit and I was hooked from page one! I couldn't stop reading until I'd finished and was so glad that part two had already been penned so I didn't have to wait to spend more time with them. What a lush, gorgeous story, I loved it and the lead male character....Well, let's just say, he's eye-wateringly sexy! Thank you for sharing your world (and Summit) with the rest of us!
  • The Light Within Me on July 15, 2013

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Would highly recommend this story for lovers of science/fiction, paranormal/romance , fantasy/romance. Noah's character was not only hot as, but well-written, as were the other members of the Six Saviors. Their home-world was written in a very descriptive manner and I had no problem whatsoever imaging it as I read along. The surprising plot-twist with Abby took me unawares, I totally didn't see that one coming. Great story.
  • Dark Secrets on July 15, 2013

    Love this story. I was totally hooked from the first page. It is a brilliant twist on the much done Vampire story. All of the characters were well-rounded with strengths, flaws and problems that only served to make them more human, or in some cases, inhuman. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to lovers of paranormal/romance, or just to long-time fans of the Vampire/human love affair. I saw no comparison to Twilight myself, these characters were fresh and new, and came pre-burdened with mountains of baggage. I enjoyed the varying personalities and with every page turn I was intrigued as the dramas unfolded.
  • The Heart's Ashes on July 15, 2013

    Once again a great book. I loved book#1 and knew that this one would be just as good. It was. Top read.
  • Mark of Betrayal on July 15, 2013

    Loved this book. Immensely. I now await impatiently for the next in this amazing series. I thought I knew who was good and who wasn't, but now I'm not so sure. The characters show me different sides of themselves with every turn of the page and I feel my allegiances shifting from brother to brother. I can't recommend this series highly enough.
  • Providence on July 18, 2013

    Brilliant!! Loved it.
  • Requiem on July 18, 2013

    Absolutely loved this book. This series is one I could read over and over and never tire of it, or the characters.
  • Eden on July 19, 2013

    Loved it!
  • Predestined on July 28, 2013

    I loved this and it's predecessor Existence -- which I also give 5 stars. The idea is fresh and novel and well-written. I enjoyed every second that I spent with the characters in this story.
  • Ceaseless on July 28, 2013

    Once again a brilliant read. I loved it. The concept of Death as a love interest was an amazing idea. Was sad to finish and leave the characters behind. Would loved to have just kept on reading and reading. The idea intrigues me and was handled skilfully by the author.
  • Leif on July 28, 2013

    This was a very enjoyable read. It gave me an opportunity to see behind Leif's character and why he did the things he did. I did feel sorry for him at times. In his own way, he loved Pagan, but I must admit I'm glad that the story panned out the way it ultimately did. Good entertaining short read.
