Blog Tour: Author Interview: Overprotected by Jennifer Laurens

Welcome to Author Jennifer Laurens:


I’ve written since junior high school. An only child, I grew up writing big stories about big families. I also write YA under the name of JM Warwick. My hometown of Palos Verdes, California figures in much of my work, as does my current home of Pleasant Grove, Utah and other favorite places. I love to travel.

They say “write what you know” and I do. I am a mother, I have six children, five cats and a huge doberman/dane dog. I have a supportive husband and we’ve been married 25 years. Our lives, though challenging with a handicapped child who has autism, are centered in our family.

My life experiences have worked into all of my novels. Some more heavily than others, but parts of me are in each story. I love stories rich in family drama, where family members overcome obstacles through love and miracles.


Skittles or M&Ms?

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
Selling the Heavenly series to Russia, Indonesia. Turkey and Brazil all by myself.

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world.. which would it be?
Ashlyn’s in Overprotected. I love New York, love the old, gorgeous townhouses there and would devour Colin.

What is your dream cast for your book?
I think the book would be an excellent vehicle for Taylor Swift, for obvious musical ability and marketability.
For Colin? Yikes. Paul Wesley? My original pick is too old now…lol.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
You’ve never seen a bodyguard story like it.

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?
YES! Christina Aguilera’s Stronger Than Ever. But the playlist ( in its entirety ) is on the overprotectedbook.


You have won one million dollars what is the first thing that you would buy?
LOL: Income property. I’m very practical.

Ashlyn: A lonely society princess living in New York City.

Daddy hired you to be my bodyguard.

Colin: Childhood enemy, now her protector.

Daddy thought I’d be safe. He thought I’d never fall in love. He thought he could keep me forever.

Charles: obsessed with keeping her safe, keeping her his, he hires the one person he knows she could never fall in love with: Colin.

Daddy was wrong.
