All about Jennah Sharpe
Jennah Sharpe is an author, mother and traveler who can be easily seduced by mint chocolate. Her imagination often keeps her up at night but it certainly makes for an entertaining life. She lives in Canada with her soul mate and two young children. Unofficially: I'm living my dream, on a beautiful lake with my soul mate, raising two gorgeous children and writing. I sincerely hope you're living yours as well. I've always been a writer. It's part of me. Only within the last couple of years have I begun working seriously on my craft. Thanks to Cobblestone Press, Total-e-Bound and Samhain Publishing and their encouragement, my backlist is growing monthly. I'm currently a stay at home mom but my interests also lie in anthropology and International Development, in which I have a joint degree. It helps immensely that I know how to research, and the study of human cultures is often integral in my books. Sera, the heroine of Along the Hibiscus Path is an anthropologist herself.
How Jennah got into Erotic Romance
I got into writing erotic romance purely by accident. Erotic romance is the bulk of what eBook publishers are selling and since I'd just discovered the whole eBook phenomenon, I thought I'd give it a go. In general, my writing is more sensual than erotic but both are fun, challenging and my husband loves the extra benefits my research entails and creates. I like the idea of having the bedroom doors of my characters wide open. Their love lives are part of who they are and I don't think the reader should be kept out of any aspect of their lives.
I'm working on a series of full-length books involving empaths. The first is tentatively titled Forbidden Empath and I have agents interested, which is very exciting for me. I also have another full-length about a gypsy boy who grows to be a famous musician and reunites with his lost love. I love this one. It's coming along quite nicely and the characters are fairly easy to work with.

What Jennah likes to read...
Susan Wiggs, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Emma Holly, Gena Showalter and of course, my all time fav, Karen Marie Moning. I'm having a hard time not ordering her latest release, Bloodfever. I'm asking for it for Christmas but that seems soooo far away.
It might seem strange, but I also love to read books meant for children. This comes from reading to my own. Inkheart and Dragon Rider, both by Cornelia Funke, are awesome. Then there is The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. Such a sweet and lyrical story!
