Jerri Drennen – Guest Author

Today I’d like to welcome a good friend and author to my blog, Jerri Drennen has agreed to answer a few of my questions and discuss her book, Dark Moon’s Magic.

About Dark Moon Magic…
Practicing wiccan Regina Moon is starting over in the tiny town of Groves, Arkansas, hoping her New Age shop will succeed despite her friends’ objections. A ritual-type killing of a local man transforms the quiet little community into 1692 Salem, with all eyes on her, and has the sheriff, Trace Langston not only trying to solve a murder but disbanding a mob of angry townspeople hell-bent on burning her at the stake. In all the upheaval, a cold case, sealed within a circle, is unearthed and an evil no one knew existed revealed.

Now let’s get to the questions…
When did you first decide you wanted to write?
It was about 12 years ago when my youngest daughter was 3. I was home all day with kids and needed something to keep me from going crazy. The first book was 400 plus pages of fan fiction about a boy band member, total crap, but it gave me the writing bug.

What is your favorite genre to write and why?
Romantic suspense. I love to throw characters into a perilous situation and see how they manage to overcome while falling in love.

Please tell us about your upcoming book.
Dark Moon Magic is about a practicing Wiccan, who moves to a small town to get away from an ex-lover she hiding from. Almost immediately strange things start happening. Dead birds, a rock being thrown through her window, and then a neighbor is found murdered and evidence at the scene point to her.

Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely imagination?
I tell you, I got this idea from when all those dead birds were found down in Arkansas and no one knew what happened to them.

How did you come up with the cover?
I was going through stock art pictures and found these. They fit the story so well and the most talented cover artist of all time, Elaina Lee, put them all together.

When and where will your new book be available?
Right now it’s only available on Amazon Kindle. I will have it in print soon.

Do you have a favorite character you’ve written about so far?
Yes. Nicholas Trent from my book Agent in Training. I think he’s my youngest hero, has the smartest mouth, yet I totally love the man.

If you could meet one character from a novel, who would it be and why?
This one is easy. That would be Rob Mackenzie from Laurie Breton’s, Coming Home. Read the book and you’ll know why.

Who is your favorite author?
Right now it’s Laurie Breton.

Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?
Just keep honing your craft. I’m still learning and I’ve been at this for a long time.

Spaghetti or Lasagna and why?
I love them both, but I’d have to say Lasagna is my favorite.

Anything you’d like to share with your readers and fans?
Just that if you read and like an author’s book you should give them a review or comment on their website. You have no idea how much that means to a writer.

About Jerri Drennen…
Jerri Drennen was raised on a farm in a tiny town in Minnesota where the winters were long and being stuck inside awarded her the opportunity to read and tell stories. Years later, after moving away from family, marrying her husband of now twenty-five years and having their four children, she started writing when her youngest was three. Eleven years and many manuscripts later, she has one contemporary romance and three romantic suspense novellas with Samhain Publishing, a category romantic suspense at The Wild Rose Press and two action-adventure romances at Liquid Silver Books. Now, she’s trying her hand at self-publishing.

You can learn more about Jerri’s books on Amazon. See her Amazon Author page.
