Welcome to my website. I'm Jenna Mindel and I write for Harlequin's Love Inspired® line.
I love the Great Lakes and live in Northwest Lower Michigan with my husband and our two dogs. Up North, we have morel mushrooms to pick and snowmobile trails to blaze as well as one famous fossil called a Petoskey Stone. It's truly God's country and the setting for most of my contemporary romances.
When I was a kid, I read stories with dashing heroes and feisty heroines that fueled my desire to write. In a rush to grow up, I graduated a year early and went to college. I married my college sweetheart and landed a job in banking that spanned many years and several positions, but my dreams of becoming a published author remained. In 1991, I joined Romance Writers of America. and after many years of learning and rewriting, my first book, a traditional regency, was finally published in 2001. Then in 2006, I was honored to final for RWA's RITA award with my sixth regency, Miss Whitlow's Turn.
The contemporary world of Christian romance beckoned and I knew I had to answer that call by writing books of my heart. Currently, I am a member of American Christian Fiction Writers I am thrilled to share these inspirational reads with you and I hope you enjoy them.
