Jenna Howard

Biography

Jenna’s writing dreams truly began one summer on the air mattress of her childhood home. There she tackled her first romance: a truly wretched attempt at a medieval historical. Upon finishing the purple prose laden story of (in her own words) crap, Jenna decided that perhaps the historical genre wasn’t for her and she promptly began to write in a contemporary setting. If only the journey had been easy. She tackled category romances (and in her own words) felt like they were crap. She didn’t have the patience for romantic suspense. Really, she just wanted to get to writing the sex. (hint hint, Jenna) Her romantic comedies were so traumatic that she stopped writing until one day she got a phone call from a friend who said “We can totally write this.” The genre was erotic romance and it was (in her own words) like coming home. Residing in Calgary, Alberta, Jenna happily writes the naughty romances that make her mother sooooo comfortable.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
High school. It was all teen age angst stories. So much angst. So. Much. Angst. I lucked out in grade 11 as my teacher loved creative writing. Man, did I shine that year in English. I don't know if the love of writing would have survived without that year of nurture. I'm still trying to find that teacher to say thank you.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Oh lord. I hate this question.

I re-read Linda Howard's After the Night and Shades of Twilight EVERY year. Those two books just kick me in the heart and I cry at the same damn spots.

Jane Austen's Persuasion. The love letter Wentworth writes her is one of the sexiest damn things. Oof.

Joey W. Hill's Natural Law was one of my first BDSM books and damn but she can write. I love the dynamics between Mac and Violet. He's a cop but she's the dominant. I remember going "Holy (censored) the first time I read it" because even though he was an alpha he was submissive and didn't apologize for it. Brilliant.

What am I at? Four? For pure fun and because he's a bad ass lion and she's just bad ass: Ilona Andrews' Magic Bites.

Okay. That's five. I'm done. Tomorrow this could change.
