Femme Stalking: Jennifer McQuiston

We’re introducing a new feature on the blog today. We’ve decided to stalk authors whose books we enjoy until they agree to stop by the blog and let us go all fan girl on them.femme stalking_n

Our Diana Quincy kicks us off by femme stalking New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston.   

It would be easy to hate Jennifer McQuiston.

As aspiring authors, Jennifer and I were finalists together in a number of contests for unpublished writers. Invariably, she would land the top spot and I would place second. Always a bridesmaid.

Then Jennifer scored a major publication deal with Avon and her debut novel, What Happens in Scotland, hit the New York Times bestseller list. See what I mean about how easy it would be to be annoyed? The problem is that Jennifer is just so darn down-to-earth, funny and charming, that you can’t help but be happy for her success. Jen McQu_2088.e1.lr

Funny and charming are two words I would also use to describe her latest book, Summer is for Lovers. There are a number of reasons I enjoyed this book, starting with the unique, lovable heroine who swims, isn’t a traditional beauty, and is a bit of an oddball. The story is set by the shore in Brighton and the unusual setting adds to its charm. If you’re looking for a delightful, lighthearted  romance, Summer is for Lovers is for you.

DQ: Jennifer was kind enough to overlook the whole weirdness about being stalked long enough to stop by and chat with us. Welcome Jennifer!  

JM: Thank you so much for having me on! I confess, I am thrilled to be Femme Stalked. I spend an inordinate amount of time stalking authors I love, and to be stalked in return is a true honor.

DQ: I absolutely adore your heroine. She’s tall, athletic, socially awkward and completely original. How did you come up with the idea of making her an accomplished swimmer?
