Jennifer McKeithen


Jennifer grew up in beautiful south Louisiana. Her earliest memories were in New Orleans. Living in “America's first melting pot” taught her to appreciate culture, cuisine, and music from a young age. Her lifelong fascination with Ancient mythology and Medieval folklore remains another influence on her writing.

She and her dashing husband, Japheth, live in Kansas City, Missouri.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
This is probably the best age to be an author! I love the freedom and complete control over my story the indie publishing route gives me. Don't get me wrong, I think traditional publishing is here to stay, and I hope to someday ink a deal myself. It's just that after reading about some of the greatest and best selling authors today getting rejected many times because they didn't fit a certain mold, I decided it best to forge my own path starting out. The indie path isn't necessarily the easier way, but I have no regrets.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Atlantis on the Shores of Forever has been in my head for years! At my husband's encouragement, I finally wrote it. It's my geek fantasy, and I'm jazzed that other people enjoy it as much as I do!
