An Interview with New York Times Bestselling Author, Jennifer L. Armentrout

I am pleased to say that after venturing on my first ever trip to Book Bash this past May, I had the complete honor of meeting the incredible Jennifer Armentrout (also known as J. Lynn). When I told her that it was my Bloggerversary that day, because of course Book Bash had to be on the exact day my blog turned a year old, Ms Armentrout wrote in my book wishing me a happy blog anniversary. She is amazing.

Not only was she beyond charming and sweet in person, a few months later when I asked her if she would possibly honor my blog with an interview, she said yes.

She is one of the busiest authors I know, and she said yes!

Please enjoy my interview with New York Times Bestselling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout!

(Jennifer with The Little Connoisseur)

The Literary Connoisseur: Ms Armentrout, thank you so much for stopping by The Literary Connoisseur and answering a few questions about your life as an author. If you're ready, let's begin. Have you always known that you wanted to be a writer? 

Jennifer Armentrout: Yes, I've always known that I wanted to be a writer.  I would sit in all my classes in high school and write short stories instead of paying attention.

The Literary Connoisseur: Many authors say that their characters "speak" to them and tell them their stories, which inspires them to write their books in the first place. Do your characters "speak" to you?   

Jennifer Armentrout: I feel a connection with all of my characters and their stories.  If I don't feel that connection, then I feel like something is missing and I know that I'm going in the wrong direction with the character or the story.

The Literary Connoisseur: Which of your books has been your favorite to write? 

Jennifer Armentrout: If I have to chose one, I would probably say Wait for You


A synopsis of J. Lynn's Wait for You: 

Some things are worth waiting for . . .

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at that fateful Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. What she never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she's building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing . . .

Cameron Hamilton is six feet, three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, com-plete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make Avery want things she believed had been irrevocably stolen from her. Getting involved with him is dangerous. Yet ignoring the simmering tension that sparks between them—and brings out a side of her she never knew existed—is impossible.

Some things shouldn't be kept quiet . . .

But when Avery starts receiving threatening e-mails and phone calls, she's forced to face a past she wants to keep buried and acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. If the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface with one less scar? And will Cam be there to help her?

And some things are worth fighting for . . . 

The Literary Connoisseur: What would you like to tell your fans-to-be (fans who have yet to discover your work)?  

Jennifer Armentrout: All of my books are heavy on the romance because I love writing the romantic and sexy scenes.

The Literary Connoisseur: Are you currently working on any new projects/have you any new and exciting releases that you would like your fans to know about?  

Jennifer Armentrout: I'm currently working on Scorched which features Tanner and Andrea who are characters from Frigid.
