I’m so excited to be returning to one of my favorite events this March: the Liberty States Fiction Writers Create Something Magical Conference in New Jersey.  It’s a wonderful event that I enjoy each year and highly recommend attending.  I am honored this year to be hosting an interview each week with the attending speakers!  It begins today and will continue each week leading up to the conference. I hope you enjoy! ~Jillian

Today the Liberty States Create Something Magical Conference Speaker Interview Series continues with author Jennifer L. Armentrout:


  1. What made you want to become a writer? How early in life did you start writing?
    As cliché as it sounds, I’ve wanted to become a write ever since I could remember. I wrote my very first book during algebra class in the 9th Which is one I had to take remedial math in college, so….
  1. Is there one piece of advice you would give an aspiring writer?
    Put your head down and write.
  1. Who is on your bookshelf?
    A lot of authors. I’m actually out of bookshelf space. I have a mix of YA authors, everyone from Wendy Higgins to Veronica Roth, Cassie Clare to Brigid Kemmerer and Sarah J. Maas. I have a lot of New Adult and Adult authors. Jamie McGuire, Jay Crownover, Cora Carmack, Larissa Ione, JR Ward., Lara Adrian, and so on, so forth.
  1. Can you tell us about one of the most memorable moments in your writing career thus far?
    It’s really hard to pick just one, but I guess the most memorable moment was getting my first contract. That was the start of all of this.
  1. Tell us about your newest release/current work in progress.
    Currently working on my new HarperCollins adult novel called Moonlight Sins. I am having so much fun with the characters. The brothers are so bad and so, so much fun.
  1. Tell us a little about your workshop at the Create Something Magical Conference.

          I will be discussing writing multiple books while working with multiple publishers with Laura Kaye and will also be doing a Q&A.
