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.”
