Interview with Jennifer Dean
Hi Wenona! Thanks for having me today!
Thanks Jennifer it's great to have you here. Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.
BOUND is a story about the seventeen-year-old Emma Morgan, who moves back to her beloved hometown of Washington, North Carolina, to find her normal life turned upside down when she meets a bright-eyed boy named, Liam Alexander. A boy who happens to be her soulmate…too bad he’s not human.
Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?
I would love to know readers can pick out the layered title meaning that reaches out to more than one relationship in the story.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I was not the typical person who grew up wanting to write stories for a living. I didn’t even like the idea of reading and was turned off when teachers tried to force me. But when I was seventeen my brother changed my life by finally convincing me to read Harry Potter.
When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?
I’m a tv-holic. I love my tv shows! When I’m not working on my next project I am watching one of the many shows that are both on air and collected on dvd.
If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?
The next book of the series is Withered Roots. I’m still revising it, but what I will say is that it will pick up with Emma’s life five months later at a wedding.
What is in your to read pile?
It’s so hard to let myself relax with a book without feeling guilty that I am not writing. But the ones I really want to tackle sometime are Dead Reckoning, Vampire Diaries: The Hunters, and Eragon.
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance
Number of pages: 254
Word Count: 89,600
17-year-old Emma Morgan believes she finally has the chance at happiness again when she relocates back to her hometown of Washington, North Carolina and reunites with her older brother, Sean.

A secret that will change Emma’s life forever and lead her to discovering the beginning of something she never believed could exist...true love.
