Ever since her grandfather co-created Twinkies, Snowballs & Hostess cupcakes for Intercontinental Baking Company, circa 1959, Jenna’s yet to taste a cake she hasn’t liked.
Jenna is the author of “fiction that feeds your faith” – Happily-Ever-After romance & romantic suspense stories with a Christian world view. She also writes clean, wholesome romances. Her stories emulate those she enjoys reading…with a heroine who is in grave danger & a hero who is smart enough to get out of her way as she kicks butt & takes down names… and those that feature the sweetest of fairy-tale-ending love stories.
She writes romances that glorify God and His sacrificial love through His Son, Jesus Christ and show how He gives us hope & peace amidst unbearable situations. After her first breast cancer diagnosis in 2012, several reoccurrences and metastasis, Jenna continues to praise God and trust His oversight in her life; and continues to write more books.

With the release last weekend of the movie Dunkirk, I wanted to spotlight my WWII romance War of the Heart, to remind others of the dedication and endurance of The Greatest Generation. Whether it was a soldier, civilian volunteer, or family member – they all showed incredible bravery and patriotism and endured heartbreak beyond imagination. Due to their sacrifice, we experienced decades of peace and prosperity.
Author Interview Questions:
- What is the accomplishment that you are most proud of?
I didn’t pay much attention in school to facts about World War II. I chose to set my Christian time-travel romance in London, in both current day and 1940. I was blindsided as I read articles, diaries and watched real news footage of Londoners of the time. I kept seeing perseverance, commitment and self-sacrifice everywhere. It was amazing and eye-opening. After the book released, I was told by a few readers who were children at the time of Blitzmas, that I had captured their recollections accurately and poignantly. That made me very humble and proud at the same time.
- What is your favorite food?
Pizza with extra cheese.
- Do you prefer to cook or to bake? Why?
Bake. There is a huge comfort factor for me in mixing batter for cupcakes or stirring thick dough for walnut chocolate chip cookies. I prefer nibbling at dough rather than the cooked products! In fact, it wasn’t until War of the Heart released that I recalled and dug out my aunt’s family recipe for War Cake – which avoids using ingredients (milk, sugar, butter, eggs) unavailable or rationed in war time.
