Interview With Jenna Brandt
Tell us about a typical day in your house.
Chaos. LOL. I mean with three daughters under the age of 11 and one being a toddler, chaos reigns supreme. Well, that’s not totally true. God reigns supreme, chaos comes in second. I get up and take my kids to school, then get home and check emails and handle the business end of my books. Then I usually try to write while taking care of my 2 ½ year old while fitting in the accounting for our family business, a Christian laundromat and car wash. I go get my kids, make dinner and when everyone is asleep, I spend more time writing.
What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
I try to squeeze in writing when I can, but most of my writing happens between 9 PM-1 AM when everyone is asleep because it’s quiet and I can work uninterrupted. I don’t get as much sleep, but sometimes I take a nap with my toddler before school pick-up.
What was the most surprising thing you learned about yourself as you wrote this book?
I wasn’t sure how I would do writing a traditional western book, and I found not all am I good at it, but I enjoyed all the research for it.
Tell us about your latest book.
My latest book is called Lawfully Loved, and it’s part of the new multi-author series, The Lawkeepers.
Jake “Bullseye” Bolton is a deputy sheriff out of Abilene, Texas, tasked with tracking down the infamous Grimes Brothers. When he is stranded outside Rockwood Springs, he encounters Rebecca Caldwell, whose family owns the local livery. Still healing from a broken past, Jake resists the strong attraction he feels for the prairie darling.
Rebecca has been too busy taking care of her family to think about love and marriage. At least that’s what she tells herself, but deep down, she knows she is getting to the age she has to make a choice whether or not to pursue love. When Jake enters her life, she wonders if she is finally ready to do just that.
Sparks fly as they get to know each other over the course of a weekend during the town’s anniversary celebration. But once Jake can travel again, he must continue his search for the brothers. Shortly after leaving, he realizes the robbers are on their way to Rockwood Springs. Will Jake be able to get back to Rebecca and the town in time to save the people he has grown to care for? And when it’s time for Jake to return to his life in Abilene, will he decide new love is worth fighting for?
** Note: Each book in The Lawkeepers series is a standalone book, a mini-series of sorts, and you can read them in any order.
