Author spotlight: Jennie Kew

28 October 2021

In the lead-up to ARR2021 in December we will be spotlighting the authors who will be signing. In the spotlight today we have Jennie Kew.

Who was the first romance author to catch your interest?

The first author I remember reading who wrote true romance was Johanna Lindsey. I love her Viking family trilogy, especially Hearts Aflame, the second book in the series, which stars Kristin, a headstrong, clever and physically capable woman who didn’t play games to get what she wanted. She was such a strong character and that really resonated with me.

What do you write?

I write primarily contemporary erotic romance set in Australia, but I also have a few short erotic paranormal stories too. I change between first and third person point of view, depending on what works for that particular book or series. Currently my novels are all in third person and my short stories are all in first person.

Which usually comes to you first—characters or plot (or something else)?

Usually a snippet of dialogue comes to me and I try to figure out who said it. Is it a character I already have in mind, or someone new? Why did they say it? What situation are they in when they say it? The rest builds from there until it slowly fleshes out the character and plot more fully.

Choose one of your books to turn into a movie—who would you cast in the lead roles?

This is honestly something I’ve never thought about, but I’d probably pick Sacrifice and Seduction, book 2 in the Brisbane Bachelors series, and I’d choose Margot Robbie as Karen, and Jai Courtney as Edward.

Tell us about your latest release in 100 words or less:

The Whole Shebang collects all eight of my short erotic stories from The Q Collection into one book. It’s available as an ebook or in print.

What else are you working on in 2021?

Currently I’m writing Size Doesn’t Matter, book 5 in the Bennett’s Bastards series. It will be out at the end of November this year.

    I haven’t read Jennie’s work as yet and I know that I will like it. So my plan this year is to make time to read it! Thanks ARRA for these blog posts of our Aussie authors.
