INTERTWINED
BY JENNIFER SLATTERY

Jennifer Slattery is a novelist, speaker, and mother who’s been married to her best friend for the past twenty years. When she’s not writing, you’ll likely find her reading in one of Omaha’s lovely coffee shops.

Welcome, Jennifer. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
Author Carrie Stuart Parks—because she’s brilliantly creative and has such a heart for other writers!

What fun or unique things can you tell us about yourself?
I love peanut butter and eat it straight from the jar by the spoonful. I’ve been known to visit four coffee houses in one day (buying decaf, I swear!). I tend to bobble, bounce, and sway when I write. Apparently it’s amusing to watch…


Where is your favorite vacation spot?
Seattle! I grew up in the Northwest, and this is where I met and fell n love with my sweet husband. We’ve been back numerous times, for our first date night after baby, then later when she was a toddler. Last September we spent a week there to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary. It was awesome and we’re already talking about when we can go again.

What is your favorite Bible verse?
“Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil” (Proverbs 4:25-27, NLT).


What can your readers expect from you next?
My next novel, Breaking Free, releases in March. How about I share the back cover text?


Sometimes it takes losing everything to grab hold of what really matters.

Women’s ministry leader and Seattle housewife, Alice Goddard, and her successful graphic-designer husband appear to have it all together. Until their credit and debit cards are denied, launching Alice into an investigation that only leads to the discovery of secrets. Meanwhile, her husband is trapped in a downward spiral of lies, shame, and self-destruction. Can they break free from their deception and turn to the only One who can save them? And will it be in time to save their marriage?

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
What a lovely question! All authors love book reviews; they help readers know what to expect before buying a book and are such encouragement to the writer. And of course, they can tell their friends, family, and neighbors about the book as well.


Please tell us a little about your novel, Intertwined.
Here’s the text from the back cover:

Abandoned by hubby for another woman, Tammy

Kuhn, an organ procurement coordinator finds herself in an altercation with a doctor. Now she is fighting to keep her job and her sanity when one late night she encounters an old flame facing an unthinkable tragedy. Because they both find eternal purposes in every event and encounter, they soon discover their lives are intertwined but the ICU is no place for romance....or is it? This could this be where life begins again.

Where can readers find you online?
Blog

Facebook

Where can readers purchase Intertwined?
Pretty much anywhere. Here’re a few places:
CBD
Amazon
B&N


Any parting comment?
I’d love to hear from your readers! Readers, where’s your favorite vacation spot and why?

  5. I have to visit Seattle. I have heard and read many great things about there. My favorite place to visit for vacation is Trinidad. I always feel like I have returned home when I am there. There is someone about that place that satisfies my restless spirit.

    Love the synopsis of Interwined.

    1. Hi, Sonnetta,

      Seattle is such a beautiful city, but I think what makes it even more special for me is all the memories it encompasses. My next novel, releasing in March, is set in Seattle.

      I've never been to Trinidad. What's it like? Do you go there often?

      Delete
    2. Trinidad is a country that celebrates its diverse heritage. The people and the food are great. They are very laid back. They love to lime(hangout). My sister lives there so I visit a lot. I would love for some fiction to be based on this lovely island.

  6. If at first you don't succeed -- try, try again. I have tried to win this novel to no avail, so I'll try again! lol Jennifer and I have a couple of things in common! Although I no longer live there, I was born in Omaha, Nebraska, and have relatives there, and I also love eating peanut butter with a spoon. But then, who doesn't? ;) Thx so much for the opportunity to win this great sounding novel.

    1. Ah! I'm so sorry, but I love your perseverance! Yes, maybe this time with be *the time*! Best of luck!

      That's awesome that you were born in Omaha. I love this area; it feels very friendly and family-oriented. Regarding your question about peanut butter--I know, right?! haha.

    2. Thx, Jennifer! My parents moved from there when I was two or three, but I remember snow...lots of it. My cousins who still there and in Lincoln are very family oriented and so very friendly. I thought the South had the monopoly on friendliness, but after living in SC for 25 years I realize we're not the only friendly peeps around. Lol And the gossip is as bad here as it was in Mayberry on The Andy Griffith Show! haha

    4. I forgot to mention where I love to vacation. I really love Edisto Island in North Carolina. It'll put you in mind of Mackinac Island because people ride their bikes around there, and it's just so very peaceful there.

  7. Hi, Jen!

    Are you a peanut butter fan, too? One year, my daughter made me a paleo peanut-butter cake for Mother's Day. It was awesome, and not just because she melted my heart making it. :)

  18. Jennifer, I read an interview awhile back about Intertwined (before it was released) and was moved by your personal story and it's relationship to Seattle. Although, I don't live within the Seattle city limits, I have always lived around Seattle. I love the Pacific Northwest and, being from here, claim Seattle as my own. I am a big "Stay-cationer." The beauty of where I live, nestled in the midst of the Pacific Ocean and the Cascades, gives me the best of both worlds. If you love nature and the outdoors, the PNW is the best place to live and vacation. Don't let the rumors of "it's always raining" keep you away. :) tlhcoupon(at)hotmail(dot)com
