First time writers, seasoned writers or master writers – any kind of work from them, I believe is a product of their hard work, imagination and endless research. And they are all so amazing!!!

J.L Berg is one fabulous lady with her charm and wit, always fun to chat with and just a riot!!! Want to get to know her a little bit more? Well…read onImage

A full time Mom of two adorable kids, how do you manage being a mom, wife, writer and of course a fun person on social forums:

Jennifer: I don’t sleep!  No, I’m kidding.  Kind of ……

It’s definitely a lot and there are times when I feel like I am failing in one or more of my duties.  Sometimes I have to shut down and pay attention to my kids and leave writing alone for a while.  There are also times when Mommy has a deadline and they have to watch a movie by themselves.  It’s a balancing act, but I’m lucky enough to have a very patient and supportive husband, who help me stay sane.  Mostly…

When readers read your books, what do you want them to feel?

Jennifer: I want my readers to feel everything!  I am known for making readers cry, but I also have quite a number of funny and sexy moments in my novels that balance out the heavy.  I like knowing my readers finish one of my novels feeling an array of emotions, rather than just one or two.  That is life—we feel everything.  

How do you balance the relation of editor, publisher and writer?

Jennifer: I am self-published (except for my audio) so I am my own boss!  But I do work with two editors.  Yes, two! I am anal when it comes to editing so I have two, to make sure that everything is perfect by the time a book is released.  Both are women I love and trust them with my work.

ImageWho do you brainstorm the scenes with in your books:

Jennifer: I come up with scenes for books randomly.  There’s no rhyme or rhythm to the way my brain works.  Sometimes I’ll come up with an epic scene as I’m floating off to sleep.  Other times, something will come to me when I am grocery shopping or taking a shower.  A writer’s mind is weird.  I think we only live in the real world half the time. 

What was the most difficult part of writing ‘Never Been Ready’:

Jennifer: I hated writing Leah’s father.  He was a necessary character to her development and to the book, but I seriously hated him.  I don’t think I’ve ever disliked one of my characters – it was a definite first for me. 

Now here’s my “Curious George” question –

How much of the erotic scenes are inspired by personal experience (tongue in cheek) 😉 😉 😉 –

Jennifer: Hahahahaha, you could publish this.  I’m not shy.

Jennifer: I’d say about half.  But the other half, my husband likes to re-enact, just to make sure they are authentic.  J

She is such a sweetheart!
