Author Interview: Ice Princess by Jennifer Anderson

Welcome to Author Jennifer Anderson.

I’m a Mommy, wife and now author. Even though I’ve spent many years on either coast, I’ve spent a majority of my life in the Midwest.  Here is where my heart grows with the love and support of my family and friends and here is where I find inspiration for my stories.
I didn’t grow up wanting to be an author but knew I needed to do something creative. After many years or moving from one job to the next and not finding happiness, I set pen to paper and began work on a Young Adult novel that will never see the light of day. And that’s okay.
Finally, after a year or two of bringing life to the stories in my head, I got a break. My first published novella, Ice Princess, was published in April 2012 by Turquoise Morning Press.

Interview
If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future? 
Past…definitely. I’d want to travel back to the 1930s when my grandmother was a young girl in Japan. Her life was full of mystery and tidbits she never had the chance to share with me before she passed. There is so much I want to know.

What movie and/or book are you looking forward to this year? 

I’m a Twi-hard at heart so Breaking Dawn Part 2 is top on my list. Book? It’s tough to narrow it down but 1. City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare 2.Endure by Carrie Jones although by the time this list releases, I might have both in my eager hands!

What was your favorite children’s book? 

The Monster at the End of This Book. Now, when I read to my children, I exaggerate turning each page…gasp!

What do you do in your free time? 

As a mom, I don’t get much free time. But when I’m allowed some, I love to watch The Food Network or throw myself into a good book.

Ice Princess (Honey Creek Royalty Book 1)

Mya Newman never minded the routine or quiet that came with living in Honey Creek, Ohio. For her senior year, she craves something exciting to happen instead of it melting into a cookie cutter routine like the previous years.
When a new girl, Audrey Moore, moves to town, Mya finds herself caught in a triangle. She discovers hidden feelings for her best friend, Michael Graves, but he seems to have eyes for the new girl.
After Mya’s father becomes ill and eventually passes, she turns to her best friend, Michael. He never leaves her side, but she wonders if he’d rather be elsewhere. With fear of rejection and loss of friendship, Mya decides she can’t confess her recently discovered feelings.
When Michael and Mya share a dance at the Winter Formal, does she open her heart to him? Or does she shy away, forever longing to be the princess who finds her prince?
