About Jenna Baker

At the age of 23, after graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in film and television from New York University, Jenna Baker picked up from New York and drove west to Los Angeles. It was the same summer that a television series called Survivor was premiering. Jenna caught an episode of the show in a hotel room and was instantly hooked. She was so smitten, that she changed her travel itinerary around to ensure she wouldn’t miss a single episode.

When she arrived in Los Angeles, Jenna landed an assistant job for a company called Rocket Science Laboratories. They were producing another ground-breaking reality television show called Temptation Island. Jenna stayed with Rocket Science for several years moving up from an executive assistant to an associate producer before moving on to other companies to further her career. Jenna worked on numerous reality shows including Surprise Wedding I & II, Married By America, Paradise Hotel and two seasons of The Swan.

Working on reality shows was a blast, but it was extremely difficult for Jenna as it meant completely giving up her own life in order to follow someone else’s. The hours were brutal and the competition was fierce, but mostly it was the mantra “anything to get the shot” that ultimately forced Jenna to choose a different career path. What she took away from her reality television career was a wealth of hilarious stories about doing anything and everything to make the show work. Reel Sharpe was the first book in the “Reel” series followed by Reel Hollywood. The novels allowed Baker the perfect outlet to share her stories and secrets from an insider’s perspective while still keeping the content light and entertaining.

Jenna now lives on Long Island with her husband Brandon and children, Austin and Avery.

About the Series: Reel Series
I wrote these books to take readers behind the scenes of reality television in a very playful way. The stories are tongue-in-cheek representations of my real-life reality TV experience with a lot of truth woven in. I created fictional characters experiencing real emotions in an environment that will make people laugh and gasp along the way. The stories are about Victoria Sharpe, a ruthless television producer documenting Los Angeles police officers as they try to solve crimes. With a tendency to bend the truth and a need to deliver against tough deadlines, Sharpe finds herself meddling in the investigations and nearly getting herself arrested in the process!

Reviews of Reel Sharpe by Jenna Baker

JaneofArch reviewed on June 25, 2017

Not at all bad, though the main character's mode of expression got on my nerves for some reason.

Struggling TV producer for new real-life adventure strives to follow two police detectives as they trace a hit-and-run death that might be murder. She finds herself falling for the obnoxious lead detective and steps into a good deal of danger while following the investigation. All ends well with romance in the offing.

I'd like to see more by this writer. 4-1/2 stars.
