Welcome author Jennifer Wright

I'd like to welcome author Jennifer Wright to my blog  Let's find out about her and her book "Pavarus."

1.How long have you been writing?
I have been writing since the summer of 2010, but the stories in my head have been going on my entire life.

2.What is your favorite genre to write?
M/M paranormal (both shifters and vampires) romance is my favorite, but I also enjoy writing contemporary m/m romance. I’ve been working light BDSM and futuristic into my writing recently, and dabble in a little m/f as well.

3.What are you working on now?
I am working on finishing up my Finding Home series. I’m a little over a third of the way through book 3 and, of course, still have book 4 and 5 to write.

4.When you start a new story do you begin with a character or plot?
Both. It depends on the story, I guess. For Pavarus it started with a plot, but the rest of the series it’s all about the character and the adventure he’d going to get. Even for single titles it varies. My BDSM was plot, but my futuristic is definitely all about the character.

5.Tell us about your latest/upcoming release. What inspired it?
My debut novel, Pavarus, is about Wesley, a man from Earth, who suddenly finds himself in another world where he meets the sexy Remus, commander of the vampires, and Gravaick, the not so nice leader of the Drágun’s. It is in Pavarus that Wesley has to decide if his love for Remus is greater than his fears of the world he’s in.

Book Blurb
Thrown into another world where dangerous creatures live and rule, will Wesley stay and find love with a vampire, or will the terrors of an unknown realm have him running home?
On a camping trip in Louisiana, Wesley finds himself sucked down a hidden portal and thrown into another realm where he meets Remus, a warrior vampire.  With the help of Remus, Wesley embarks on an adventure to find his way home, back to a world not filled with vampires and dragons and magic folk.  Along his journey, the handsome vampire finds his way into Wesley’s heart.  But will his love for Remus overcome his fears of the creatures that reign in this world?
Remus has never wanted a man before, but finds himself drawn to Wesley despite his denying efforts.  He’s happy with his life as the commander of the vampires, and has had no interest in finding a mate.  But after Wesley is kidnapped, Remus discovers his feelings for the man are stronger than he thought.  Is he strong enough, though, to honour Wesley’s wish to return home, and let go of the man he loves?
Wes was hesitant to open his eyes. Something wasn’t right. The last thing he remembered was the agonising pain in his gut from being stabbed, yet now he felt…great. Wonderful. Absolutely amazing. He couldn’t even remember the last time he felt this good. There wasn’t a single ache in his body, and that had his mind reeling. With the beatings and being stabbed…why wasn’t he hurting? Why wasn’t he dead?
A shifting to his left had him holding his breath. Slowly, he opened his eyes and peeked through, hoping to get a look at his surroundings before Gravaick became aware that he was awake. Wes looked up at the ceiling and frowned. It wasn’t a dark and dirty stone ceiling like before. This one was light and clean and strangely familiar, considering it was just a ceiling. Wes opened his eyes fully and looked around the room.
It was Remus’ room. He was home!
Wes started when a hand landed on his chest. He looked to his left and cried out when he spotted Remus next to him on the bed, asleep. Wes ignored the ‘oomph’ from Remus as he plastered his body against his man’s. He wrapped his arms and legs around Remus and held tight, burying his face into his chest.
Without warning, tears began to fall. He couldn’t have been happier to see Remus here next to him. His last thoughts had been of the man he loved, and now that man was here with him. Wes revelled in the feel of Remus’ arms wrapping around him, holding him closer. He felt himself calming as Remus caressed his back, whispering comforting words in his ear.
Wes looked up into Remus’ beautiful grey eyes. Unable to hold back, Wes moved up and gently kissed him. Fireworks exploded and his body came alive at the feel of Remus’ lips against his. The kiss was tender and unhurried. Wes nibbled along Remus’ bottom lip and slid his body against his mate’s.
Remus growled—he reached up and laced his fingers through Wes’ hair and plunged his tongue into Wes’ mouth. Wes moaned and ground his erection against Remus’ hip—the man’s own dick digging into Wes’ thigh.
Wes’ mind reeled as Remus deepened the kiss, the tenderness turning frantic and desperate. Tongues tangled, lips mashed together, breath became ragged, hearts raced… They wanted each other…they needed each other.
Wes whimpered when Remus pulled his head back, breaking the kiss. “Wait”—Remus looked Wes over—“you’re hurt. You should be resting.”
“I feel fine, Remus. Actually, I feel amazing.” Wes punctuated the later with a roll of his hips.
Remus closed his eyes and groaned, taking a deep breath and letting it out slowly. He opened his eyes and stared at Wes. “Wesley—”
Wes silenced him with another kiss. “No, don’t deny me, Remus, I need you,” he mumbled as he nibbled along Remus’ chin. “I’m fine, Remus. Please believe me.” He felt Remus’ hand tighten in his hair before he pulled Wes’ head back again. He stared deeply into Wes’ eyes, seeming to search for the truth in his words. “Do you want me?” Wes asked.

I was born in Arizona, but have spent the better part of my life in Wisconsin.  While I enjoy living close to my family, my heart longs to live in the South – or anywhere where the winters are warmer, and I hope to someday get there.  I love writing, and try to dedicate as much of my free time to it (ha! what free time?).  If I’m not typing away on my laptop, you’ll find me with my nose buried in a book, or with my loving boyfriend debating on what movie to watch and the never ending back and forth decision of what we should have for dinner.  I love spending time with my family and boyfriend, cuddling with my two cats, and laughing as much as possible (cuz I like to think I'm funny :)).
I’ve always had a very active imagination.  I can spend days creating a story in my mind; playing it out word for word like a movie for my own personal entertainment.  When I was younger I tried dabbling in writing, but it faded away.  But not long ago – as silly as this may sound, one of my ‘daydreams’ moved me so much, I decided to put it down on paper.  My passion for writing took off again with a new surge, and I’ve never been happier or had more fun.
Some little tidbits about me are – I love horses and cats, I have a really big sweet-tooth, and I've been told I like to talk with my hands (insert hand gestures here).

  1. Thank you for having me as a guest today, Lily!

    I hope you had a wonderful holiday and have a Happy New Years!


  2. Great interview! Sounds like you are on quite the creative streak, Jen. All the best. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks, HK! I'm trying to broaden my horizon.:)
      Hope you have a Happy New Year as well!


  3. Hi, Jen,

    I have a question. How do you know how many books there are in your series, this far ahead of time? And how much do you know, now, about the plots and characters?

    I've never written a series and to be honest, I'm not sure I'd know how. I'm always curious about other authors' methods.

    1. Hi Lisabet,

      Awesome question, and hard as hell to answer.
      I honestly have to say I have a hard time writing single title books, period. I always fall in love with all of the men in my books, and I find it hard to not give them each a story of their own. I have yet to write a book that I don't have any sequels thought out for it - but always for a different character(s) in the book.

      Now, for the Finding Home Series you have the main 5 men - Remus, Keddrick, Zane, Larken, and Damien - and each man I absolutely adore, they are the souls of my stories. In the case of the FH Series, I had book 1,2,and 3 down flat (having a blast writing book 3 right now). Book 4 and 5 on the other hand, I have just a basic outline. But with every story I write, the more stuff gets added to the books later on in the series. It's hard to explain, but as I write...the more ideas I get. I knew the beginning and end to the entire series from the get-go, all I'm doing now is filling in the middle.

      It really is a flood of information to the head. Some people have a muse that bugs the crap out of them till they finally sit down and write the muse's story out. For me, I had all 5 talking over each other, trying to get my attention. Two of them have their stories, but as I'm writing the 3rd, the 4th and 5th guys are in the back whining, "Come on! I've got this great idea for...". It gets hard a times, but I'm getting there.

      Now that I've spewed on forever (terrible habit I'm afraid), I hope I've answered your question. I guess all I can say is that it just comes to me. The moment I had decided to turn Pavarus into a series, by the end of that day I had the whole thing thought out and ready to put into words.
