Who are you and where did you come from?
Jennifer L. Barnes lives in Southern Indiana with her geek extraordinaire husband, a massive, black, yard destroying dog, and a cat who thinks chewing on fingers is a good way to show her affection. Raised with wolves (seriously, her father was a canine biologist for the first half of her life) by a Shawnee Medicine man and her bibliophile mother, she quickly gained appreciation for the written word. Growing up in such a unique household meant finding a way not to go insane, and she found out she had a knack for writing. So, here she is now writing her preferred genre of Urban Fantasy with occasionally dipping her toes into horror, romance, and erotica. She also has a top 30 Jukepop Serials online serial that she would love for you to read. Plus its totally free! So if you like 80’s movies mixed with a soupcon of heavy metal and a large dose of snark, you might want to check out the “Law Unto Herself Chronicles” at http://www.jukepop.com/home/read/533.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?
I'd love to have my "Law Unto Herself Chronicles" as a published book series with a modest fanbase. I'd also love to do my darker spin off series of it as well involving a group of individuals protecting the world from the knowledge that the supernatural exists. Like I said, I love some Urban Fantasy.

What is the biggest mistake you've made in your life?
The Fifth? It's being pleaded right here.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Absolutely nothing. I'm allergic to chocolate.

Best Elevator Pitch For Latest Book. 300 words or less
Forest is a vampire who's morality complex makes her too good for her own good, and she has a nasty habit of not knowing when to leave things alone. Armed with an absurdly large handgun, the gift of snark, a love for pop culture and heavy metal, and one bitching muscle car she fights the Forces of Evil.
