What sets your Elemental Assassin series apart from other urban fantasy series in this genre?
Since Gin is an assassin, I would say that I’m probably writing a little more of an anti-hero than maybe some of the other urban fantasy series out there. Also, my series definitely has a bit of a Southern flavor to it.
Can you tell us about your latest release, Widow’s Web?Jennifer: Widow’s Web is the seventh book in my Elemental Assassin series. In this one, Gin has to deal with some issues regarding her lover Owen Grayson, especially when Owen’s ex, Salina, comes to town. Salina has her own ideas about how things should be run in Ashland, and she and Gin clash over that, among other things.
What 3 words would you use to describe Gin Blanco? Jennifer: Smart. Strong. Sassy.
Can you tell us something about Gin Blanco that we haven’t read in one of your books?(a tick, hidden tattoo, fav flavor)
Jennifer: Well, I can say that Gin doesn’t have any tattoos.
What was the biggest challenge you faced while writing Widow’s Web?Jennifer: Well, it’s a challenge to write any book, but in Widow’s Web, probably the biggest challenge for me was just capturing all of Gin’s emotions. She always knew that Owen had a past and previous relationships, but it’s one thing knowing that and it’s another when Salina comes to town, and Gin learns about the connection that Owen and Salina had. So Gin’s reaction and how she deals with all of that was probably the biggest challenge for me in writing the book.
If Finnegan would convince Gin and Bria to go on a family’s day-out, where would they go? Jennifer: Hmm. Good question. Finn would probably want to go to a museum so he could admire all of the beautiful things on display – and try to figure out how all the paintings and other art could go home with him. LOL.
On your website you mentioned that there are coming three more books after Widow’s Web. Have you thought about your writing life after the Elemental Assassin series?
Jennifer: I have thought about that. I do have some ideas for a new urban fantasy series that I hope to explore sometime in the future. But right now, I’m having a lot of fun writing my Elemental Assassin series, and I hope to be writing about Gin for a long time to come. We’ll see what happens. Happy reading, everyone!
I saw all you elemental icons on your website so I made my own elemental icon “wind” what do you think? New idea for a villain? (made it very small, so it doesn’t show how ugly it is 🙂 )
