Author Jerri Drennen
Jerri enjoys writing series such as the Aztec Security series of which "Mauvelous" and "Caddy-Did" are a part of to her latest, the Men of the Jungle series, which houses the attention-getting novel "Untouched," and the just released "Unplanned." And let's not forget the Denver Homicide and Men of the Black Stallion series.
Q) I've heard you're addicted to yard sales. What's your best find so far?
A) I find treasures all the time, but last year I found this cute little black dress that still had the tag on it, which I paid a dollar for.
A) I like building up to love more than anything. When the characters are just becoming aware of the sexual tension between them. That's with reading and writing romance.
Q) You are a vegetarian. Do you plant (terrible pun intended) your beliefs in to your characters? Why or why not?
A) I believe I've only had one character who was vegetarian. I love animals, and that was catalyst to me becoming one, but I don't try and sway anyone into the no-meat lifestyle--though both my daughters and one of my son's are vegetarian.
A) When I was writing Untouched, I knew I'd have to write Galen's story once I got to know him, though he was a difficult hero to write. Some might even say he's a anti-hero. He hides his pain behind a carefree, unemotional attitude. The man is closed off and afraid to connect with people--especially women because of something dark in his past.
Q) What draws you to writing series and not stand-alone novels?
I want to thank you so much for having me here today!
