Jennifer Appel


Hanging By Threads volumes 1, 2, 3 and 4 are the most recent diatribes of my life.
Prior to the US Navy rescue at sea, Jennifer had an illustrious career as a registered landscape architect, practicing in multiple states. Concerned about pet health and lawn chemicals, Appel created Malama Aina - a soil conditioner system for Certified Organic food which was originally touted as Pet Friendly Fertilizer in the late 1990s. in the early 2000s, Appel Green Roof was created from the rooftop gardeing aspect of landscape architecture and civil/structural engineering. The 10# per sq ft green roof system saves about 30% off a single story utility bill on day one of the installation. This activity expaned into the practice of architecture with Applejacks Housing Hawaii. Applejacks Housing Hawaii focuses on master planning, sustainaable architecture, large scale residential, tiny houses, emergency shelters and cost effective solutions to the homeless issues plaguing the world. Jennifer's achievements skydiving, as a skydiving coach, racing motorcycles, flying in a MIG 21, climbing the Great Wall of China in mongul territory, sailing as well as travelling about 2/3 of the Earth have led her to the understanding that the person who you need to impress most - is YOURSELF.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It is cheaper than paying a therapist to repeat my answers back to me... (LOL) I think when the words come down in black on white and I re-read them, I can hear my thoughts and learn from them. Writing has also caused me to choose my words much more carefully, even when speaking. I also enjoy imparting good knowledge to others so they can learn from my successes and failures.
What are you working on next?
Currently, I am finishing Volumes 2, 3 and 4 of Hanging By Threads and then I am going to revise and republish a book about self-improvement. In my experience, too many people are looking outside of themselves to find the answer to their happiness or why someone else needs to change behavior in order for the 'world' to be a better place. I believe, being the best self you can be inspires others to be the best person they can be.
