What is your latest release and what genre is it? My latest release is Mortal Realm Witch: Realms Unite? The genre is children’s fantasy.
Quick description: The book is about a witch who is tired of mortals hating witches without getting to know them first. Ever since she was a young witch living in the Mortal Realm she has dreamed of uniting the Realms and creating a peaceful relationship between witches and mortals. Now she is finally getting her chance to attempt this as the current Head of the Witches Council. To accomplish her goals she sends many different characters on unique missions all of which have the same end goal of changing mortals’ opinions about witches and magic.
Brief biography: I am an author, artist, and publisher. I have currently written over 200 stories in the areas of animals, the relationships between humans and animals, magic, superheroes, and more. Some of my favorite activities include; taking my dog for bike rides, spending time outdoors, taking photos of animals, horseback riding, reading, listening to music, watching TV and movies, and playing video games. I love animals and have owned several, most of which have been adopted from rescue centers. I currently have a Chihuahua whose name is Taco, a Mini Rex rabbit named Kojikaki, and an 11 year old goldfish whose name is Pumpkin. In addition to the Mortal Realm Witch Series I have two stories in an anthology called Read for Animals Anthology #2.

Jennifer’s reading recommendation:
At the time I took this interview, out of the latest batch of books I had read at the time, I particularly enjoyed Wizards of the Game by David Lubar. However, my most recent author obsession at the time was with Tui T. Sutherland’s books.
