Jenny B. Jones

Jenny B. Jones writes Christian Fiction with equal parts wit, sass, and untamed hilarity. When she’s not writing, she’s living it up as a high school teacher in Arkansas. Since she has very little free time, she believes in spending her spare hours in meaningful, intellectual pursuit such as watching E!, going to the movies and inhaling large buckets of popcorn, and writing her name in the dust on her furniture.

Jenny B. Jones writes Christian fiction with equal parts wit, sass and hilarity. An educator by day and writer by night, Jones recognizes the contrast between her chosen professions.

“Writing is a very solitary job,” she says. “It’s just you, the computer and the M&Ms. So I love that teaching gets me around people, even if most of them are only fourteen.

“But I like that writing is something I can do at my own pace for the most part. And while I might have the occasional review that smarts, at least I don’t have 150 sets of parents I have to keep up with.”

In Jenny’s latest contemporary romance, Save the Date (Thomas Nelson), former NFL star Alex Sinclair is a man who has it all— except the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancee in return for the money she desperately needs to save her girls’ home.

“My favorite plot device is where an unlikely man and woman are forced to marry or pretend to be a couple,” says Jenny. “It’s just instant sizzle and always reels me in.”

On the other hand, it wasn’t so easy for Jenny to write about her hero’s football career. Despite her fascination with sports culture, Jenny had to call on the help of a friend when researching for Save the Date. “I am clueless about football. I love the drama in the athletic world, but I can’t tell you what a ‘quarterback sneak’ is. Fortunately, I have a good friend who lives and breathes it and she helped me a lot.”
