Q & A with author Jennifer Ann Coffeen

Thanks for being here today, Jennifer. Would you please share a short bio about yourself? 

Thanks for having me! I am a historical romance author, freelance writer and performer. I live in Chicago with my husband and small son and love the city life. My newest regency is a holiday short story, Five Golden Suitors, available from Musa Publishing.

Do you consider yourself a shy and/or introverted person?

No, though I do like my quiet time.

What’s the hardest part of this business for you?

Finding the time to write! Being a mom and working at home can be hard to juggle. I would love a few extra writing hours each day.

Tell me about a time that you had to step outside your comfort zone either in your writing career or in your personal life?

I’m currently stepping outside my comfort zone right now! I’m teaching for the first time this year and it’s exciting and scary. I’m also pushing myself to take more risks when writing.

What’s one tip you could share with shy and introverted people that’s helped you (whether you’re shy/introverted or not)?

Confidence is a state of mind. If you don’t feel confident about something just fake it until it comes. You’d be surprised at how many people feel less confident than they look.

Would you please share a short blurb of your book and where my readers can buy it?

Five Golden Suitors: Given an ultimatum from her father, Lady Penelope Waveland is forced to choose a husband from a list of five lovestruck suitors before midnight on Christmas Eve. Penelope isn’t the type of lady to quietly obey. She creates a list of her own rules that her potential suitors must follow in order to win her heart.

Available December 7th from Musa Publishing
