What is your latest release and what genre is it? My latest release is Liminal Lights – it’s a fantasy novel written for upper middle grade readers.
Quick description: What if faerie magic is real? Nadia discovers an ancient truth hidden by Liminals, coveted by Shadow Monsters, and protected by humans.
Somewhere, between faerie legends and story books, lies the truth to magic. It grows in children, matures and is eventually captured by Liminal beings. These small, faerie-like creatures harvest and manipulate it, crafting it into the talents and skills inherent in humans. The rest, they keep for themselves in an effort to sustain their own life forces.
The human race is evolving, forcing Bean, Pritt, and Tissa to find new ways of harvesting human magic to save their own kind. Nadia’s power, found in her talent as an artist, is the last hope for these Liminal beings who find themselves caught between light and shadow. Liminals aren’t the only ones after her magic, so are the creatures who lurk under the bed, hide in the darkness and go bump in the night.
This is the first book of a trilogy.
Jennifer Bogart believes there’s a spark of magic in every person, regardless of age or background. Her upper Middle Grade novels are written with bright and imaginative youth in mind. Her goal is to provide fun and appropriate content combined with challenging language and concepts for readers drifting in those precocious middle years. When she’s not writing or editing, you can find Jennifer drinking coffee and reading a good book. Her other publications include: Remember Newvember, Reflections, Money, Masks & Madness, and Under the Stars.

What are you working on now?
I’m working on the edits for Shadow Shifts, the second book in the Liminals Trilogy, as well as another women’s fiction novel that is loosely linked to Money, Masks & Madness.
Jennifer’s reading recommendation:
This is a difficult question to answer. In addition to writing, I’m also an editor and have a great love and respect for all books – even those that don’t make it to publication. Rather than play favourites with current books, I’m going to dig into my past. I love anything written by Michael Ondaatje – my favourite is In the Skin of a Lion – there’s something about the poetry of his prose that sinks into me, gets under my skin, and makes me want to be a better writer.
