J. Sterling


I got fired from my last job.

It's true.

I know you're sitting there thinking, "Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone as amazing and awesome as you are???"And i'd love to give you a good reason, but the truth is... being This! Awesome! is clearly very scary to other less awesome people. :)

So I said screw them and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing books that mean something to me is a million times better than working for my ass off for someone who doesn't really care about anything other than the bottom line.

My soul feels more satisfied.
My heart, more full.

So thank you for reading, loving and recommending the stories I write.
I think you're awesome- and not only am I not scared of other awesome people, I want them on my team!

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Southern California... in literally the same house for almost my whole life (my parents moved when I was 20 and it was the saddest thing ever). I tend to write a lot about the things I know, the things I've experienced, etc... so it definitely influenced my writing. :)
When did you first start writing?
HA! That's funny because looking back I've always been writing in one form or another (multiple journals, online blogs, online message boards), but as far as actually sitting down and writing a book for real? That didn't start until I got fired over 3 years ago.
