Author Jenny Olsen has always been a fan of romance novels, reading them as early as high school, and writing for many years, starting in college, writing whenever she had free time. She never stopped, so it is exciting to see the release of her first novel, Passion Reignited, now available on Amazon.
As Jenny shared with us on a recent episode on The Power to Pivot Podcast, she strives to make her characters believable and relatable. For her, a good character is someone who has real problems, real flaws, and someone that you see yourself meeting in everyday life. In her writing, she strives to keep her work away from the cookie-cutter prototype for the romance genre. Perhaps you are familiar --- perfect guy wants the “imperfect” girl, or vice versa. Jenny looks to write original story lines, and her characters are carefully crafted to create the perfect sequence of events that keep you excited to read from beginning to end.
Jenny takes inspiration from some of the great contemporary romance novelists of our time, like Danielle Steele, Sandra Brown, and Nora Roberts. These women have written novel after novel, with each one better than the next, and all hitting the top of the best seller list.
Passion Reignited introduces us to Rachel, a recently-divorced woman, now on a quest for her identity. This story took Jenny several years to write, a testament to her commitment to the goal of finishing her novel, as well as her commitment to producing a high-quality, solid story for the reader. And she delivers!
