Jennifer Gulbrandsen


I need to think of a clever bio beyond telling the world I love to write, I have three kids, and I drink a lot of wine.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Writing was one of the first things I knew I was good at. I always had journals and loved writing stories. I really took an interest in writing in Jr. High when my 7th grade English teacher raved about a horror story I had written. It was the first time I had ever heard the word, 'Talented' used to describe me.
What's the story behind your latest book?
'The Mom Files' is a collection of essays about my kids and motherhood I have written over the last couple of years, and it's a collection of stories I want to publish annually. 'The Secret Life of Lies' is one of the first novels I wrote. The characters of Ava, Wilcox, Maria, and Justin came to me when I was 17. Through the years, the characters and the story have grown up with me, and I think it's one of the best things I've ever written.

Reporter Blondie Jones is on the case, and it's the scoop that could kill her
