Jennifer Ryan Anthologies
She doesn’t have to struggle to find inspiration. The author can extract ideas from songs, books, conversations with people, and every other seemingly meaningless aspect of life. Stories are always calling out to her.
Jennifer started writing seriously in 2005. She had a husband and two children. However, by 2005, her kids were in school, which meant that she had more time on her hands than usual. Jennifer wasn’t tempted to go back to work because she was pregnant with her third child.
She knew that she needed a creative outlet that would fill her free time whilst also giving her the sense of accomplishment she craved. She was reading so many novels at the time that it did not take Jennifer long to set her sights on writing and publishing.
Her publishing journey was difficult. She wrote for five years before her big break came. Jennifer would produce manuscripts only for agents and publishers to reject them. Some editors were kind enough to accompany their rejection letters with suggestions regarding the problems in her manuscripts.
Rather than succumbing to the discouragement, Jennifer saved every letter she got. The author also took the advice that came her way to heart, using it to make adjustments to her manuscripts in the hopes that a publisher that understood and appreciated her voice would come along.
The author has imputed some of her success to the people she met along the way who pushed her to persevere. Her hard work eventually paid off. She became a bestselling author with several titles in her bibliography.
Jennifer Ryan made great gains in a relatively short period because she is a passionate storyteller. Her objective with each novel is to move her readers with her words, to immerse them in the trials and successes of her protagonists.
Even though the publishing field has its challenges, you won’t find Jennifer complaining because writing doesn’t feel like work to her. In fact, sometimes, she can become so engrossed in her manuscripts that she neglects her life, not only forgetting to shower but also allowing the house and the dishes to go unwashed.
She isn’t afraid to admit that, in some cases, it takes her a while to get dinner on the table because gets carried away once she starts penning her stories. None of her books are autobiographical. However, elements of her life and personality have made appearances in her novels.
For instance, she keeps creating characters that own restaurants because she loves to cook. The author also uses the experiences of her husband, who is a military man, to create riveting heroes. She doesn’t do much plotting.
Jennifer starts with an opening scene. She uses it as a platform to build the plot and the characters. She wants her stories to surprise her, which is why she hates plotting. For Jennifer, each new novel is a roller coaster ride. She has no idea where it will take her.

Jennifer was a Romance Writers of America RITA Award Finalist in 2018 because of ‘Escape To You’.
