Interview with Jennifer Katherine

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. They encourage me, are honest, and tell me what they like and don't like about a story. I always take their thoughts and feelings into consideration. They also mean everything because writers need and crave a closeness with their readers. It's a special relationship.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Spending time with my family, reading, watching films, camping, and planning trips to the ocean. I love the water.
Who are your favorite authors?
You'll wish you never asked that question! Haha. It's a very long list.

To name a few, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Anne Rice and Piers Anthony. There's many more, though, and different genres that I love.
What are you working on next?
I always have a few things I am working on, such a short story, screenplay or novel.

My next big focus though is on my novel about a teen and the paranormal. I'm not saying a lot about it right now because I don't want to let the cat out of the bag! I will when the time is right.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh, yes!

It was pretty depressing. I still have it in an offline folder somewhere. It was typed on an electric typewriter-that will give you a sense of my age.

The short story was about a young teenage couple and the girl was suicidal. I may revisit it at some point and write a new ending, as the one now is, shall we say, pretty dark.

I wrote it when I was a very depressed teenager. I was pretty happy in junior high, but when high school life started, things were surreal. It was an extremely difficult time and I know it was especially for my parents to see their oldest daughter going through that.
