Gwendolyn Jensen-Woodard


Gwendolyn Jensen-Woodard lives with her two loves, four dogs, two cats, and a very strange housemate, in the Pacific Northwest. She loves acting, but especially loves writing, which she’s been doing since she was twelve.

NOTE from Kimberlee, Managing Editor Vanilla Heart Publishing

We first met Gwendolyn several years back, when she auditioned and then did the voice acting and production on of some of our first audiobooks. As one of the owners of Gypsy Audio, we heard she’d written some of the fabulous audiodramas there, and our curiousity grew and grew… when I asked her if she might consider writing a novel or short stories, imagine my excitement when she said she would… and now, has!

Smashwords Interview

How many books are in your office or home?
This must be a trick question, right? I’ve never counted them, but I’d say well over 200, most likely much more (and I’m not counting my youngest daughter’s, 17, books. This would be nearly 100 themselves). I love to read, and I love to re-read. We have a lot of fiction, mostly fantasy, some non-fiction (from my college days), and comics/gaming books.
Do you work on more than one novel at a time?
Often, yes. I try to finish one first, but sometimes, another idea strikes and I just have to get it on paper. Otherwise, I might forget a great new story.
