Over to Jennifer now...

Who is Jennifer Faye?

First and foremost, I’m a wife and a mother. I adore my family and I’m so proud of their accomplishments. I’m their biggest cheerleader. I’m also a homebody as most everything I love to do is right here around me, from my humongous tea collection to my collection of cross-stitch books/materials to my flower gardens. But the one thing that I’m thrilled to do in life is tell stories. I have a very vivid and overactive imagination so my mind is jammed full of delicious fodder for books. ;-)
What inspired you to be a writer?

I was very young, not even in school, when I learned from the television show “The Waltons” that you couldn’t get published if you didn’t have a typewriter. Yes, I said typewriter. So that Christmas I wrote to Santa and requested a typewriter. It was all the way back then when I knew my destiny, but I had to take a few detours in life before I got back on the right path.
How did you chose your genre?

I was drawn to romance as a kid. I watched GONE WITH THE WIND every time it was on television. My mother was horrified that a little kid of eight would be so enthralled with such a movie. But Rhett Butler was just so dreamy. Later, in my teens I found some Harlequins at a sidewalk sale, and I was hooked. As they say, “It was all history after that.”
What made you tell this story and why did you write this book?

RANCHER TO THE RESCUE was actually one of three diverse story ideas I developed to enter in the Harlequin Romance Fast Track. I wrote up a synopsis and first chapter for each idea. I then passed them around to some trusted people and had them rank the stories in the order of strength of quality/entertainment. It was unanimous, RANCHER TO THE RESCUE came out on top.
How did you come up with the title?

I actually can’t take credit for the title. When I submitted the story to my editor, the working title was “The Cowboy’s Runaway Bride.” My editor, Carly Byrne, actually came up with RANCHER TO THE RESCUE. She wanted something romantic—something to suggest the heroine gets swept off her feet by the hero. I think she did a great job with the title. And between her and the art department, they created a cover to convey that sentiment as well as portray the characters as they are in the book. I hope everyone enjoys the story as it was a delight to write.

Rancher To The Rescue

Damsel in a wedding dress!

Jilted at the altar, celebrity chef Meghan Finnegan flees the scene—and the baying press—only to run straight into the muscled torso of Cash Sullivan.

The former rodeo champion knows what it's like to have your life crumble in the spotlight, so he offers Meghan a place to lie low at his ranch.

Fresh air, no paparazzi and the brooding rancher's lazy smile are making Meghan not want to leave her sanctuary. But she and her unborn baby can't stay here forever...can they?

  1. I love that Jennifer always knew she wanted to be a writer. And that Santa had a hand in it. ;)

    1. Hi Kelly. Yes, he did. But it took a few years or so to figure out I wanted to write Romance. ;-)

  2. Yes, I remember typewriters. But computers make it so much easier to revise.

    An excellent post, Nas, and a wonderful story, Jennifer. Congratulations on your published book.

    I'm a tea lover as well, Jennifer. I'm surrounded by tea pots and tea cups, and before I begin my writing day, I brew a pot of tea...just to keep me going.

    Again, a great post, ladies. Thanks. ~Victoria Marie Lees

    1. Victoria, thanks so much for stopping by. And I agree, computers are so much easier to write on. I don't know if I'd have the patience these days to keep rewriting on a typewriter and the amount of paper I'd go through would be scary. LOL.

      Glad to hear I'm not alone in my tea drinking. Yesterday I wiped out an entire pitcher of cold brewed tea all by myself. It was delicious! :-)

    1. Thanks Carol! I really liked that the characters look on the cover like they did in the book. I was very blessed as I think it's very romantic cover. And the last of its kind. Starting in August Romances are getting new cover layouts. :-)

    1. Thanks Jan! You don't know how thrilled I was to be able to call myself author. Talk about a huge promotion. :-)

      I went from a typewriter to a word processor to a laptop. And over the years I've gone through I don't know how many laptops. Don't know how we ever survived without them. LOL.

  6. I was very young when I decided I wanted to write too!

    Typewriters are so awesome. I totally wish I had one.

    1. Funny how we know a lot of things when we are young. But sometimes as we get older we get exposed to so many other exciting things that we sometimes forget. But it's nice to find your way back to the thing that you are passionate about. At least it was for me. ;-)

    1. Thanks! Wish I could take credit for the title, but my editor came up with it. She did a great job!

      And yes, I'm grateful for computers too. ;-)

  8. I loved The Waltons too. Still one of my favourite shows. Great characterisation there.
    Love the sound of your story. Great title and cover (a pretty ranch).

    1. I own the entire Walton series now. So nice to go back and revisit those episodes. I can't tell if it's the show or the way they take me way back to my early childhood that makes it so special for me. Either way, I really enjoy those shows.

      And thank you! Hope you get a chance to read it. :-)

  9. I love the typewriter story—and The Waltons! John Boy's passion inspired me, too.

    Your book sounds great! Happy Monday. ☺

    1. Really? That's so cool. I thought I was the only little kid that watched that show and then asked Santa for a typewriter. I was going to write poetry. It's the only thing I had a clue how to write back then. And it wasn't very good. LOL.

      Thanks! And happy Monday to you too. :-)

  10. I love your story about wanting to write. How wonderful you knew so early what you wanted to do, even if you made a few detours. I'll bet you parents were surprised when you wanted a typewriter at that age, instead of a doll. I would have been. You have the same min set that I have, home and hearth. I love being with my family best. Love the cover and know the story will be great. Happy writing!

    1. Shirley, so glad you enjoyed the post. Yep, I must have been a strange little kid. You know I never asked my parents if they thought my Santa request was strange or not. I just remember that I was tickled pink to get it and still remember what it looked like. I had it for years. ;-)

      So glad to hear that we have so much in common. Family is awesome! Thanks for stopping by to chat.

  11. Sounds like a super book. Ya know, something tells me that most of us who are infected with the writing bug were kinda strange as kids. Wait, no! We weren't strange. We were special. Yeah, that's the ticket. Special.

    Good luck with your book!

    1. Hee! Like your thinking. We are definitely special. I was born with an overactive imagination. Just ask my family. LOL.

  13. There are times when I miss my old Smith-Corona typewriter. My grandmother bought me my first typewriter the Christmas I turned 10-year-olds. Best wishes with "Rancher to the Rescue!

    1. Aww...another young typist. Although I think I have you beat for being the youngest as I still believed in Santa. ;-)

      Thanks so much! It's been a wonderful debut. Couldn't have asked for a better day.

  14. The hero sounds like a knight in shining armor!

  15. Or a knight in a dusty Stetson. ;-)

    So glad you stopped by and talked with me. Have a great evening!

  16. Hi Jennifer - I love the hero, not so much a knight in shining armour on a white horse as cowboy with a pickup truck!

  19. I purchased so many Harlequins at flea markets and library sales. I'll always have fond memories of that publisher because of my youth. I also remember my typewriters, both manual and electric. My early writing efforts were handwritten as well as on those machines.

    It was great meeting this author and getting to know her work.
