One of the first writing friends I made was Bethany A. Jennings. When I first “saw” her on Facebook, she was at Realm Makers and had shared a picture online with her holding a nerf gun.
Besides looking totally cool, I don’t recall exactly why I reached out to her, except I felt strongly lead to.
That is a decision I will never regret.
She is such an encourager! At a time when I was feeling very low about my own writing journey, Bethany immensely encouraged me as she shared some of her story about writing and motherhood. It was literally an answered prayer.
Today I call her friend, writing mentor, and now author.
Grab a blanket and a few pillows for my fun chat with Bethany about music, writing, and her latest release, Threadbare.
Bethany A. Jennings is a YA science-fiction and fantasy author, and a chronic night owl. She is endlessly passionate about the power of speculative fiction, both to shape hearts and change cultures and to unveil hidden realities. While she can be found wrangling her toddlers, running Twitter events, or inventing new kinds of sandwiches—no matter where she is, worlds and stories are dancing in her head. Born a southern California girl, she now lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children, zero pets, and a large collection of imaginary friends (a.k.a. fictional characters). In addition to her fiction writing, she is a freelance editor, blogger, and the organizer of #WIPjoy, a seasonal online event for authors.
