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 Northern Michigan with my husband and our three dogs. Up North we have great fruit, 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 up here and the setting for most of my contemporary romances.
As a kid, I daydreamed. Reading stories with dashing heroes and feisty heroines only fueled my desire to do something special. 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 has spanned over thirty years and several positions. But my dreams of writing romances remained.
In 1991, I joined Romance Writers of America. 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. But the contemporary world of Christian romance beckoned and I knew I had to answer the call by writing books of my heart. I also joined American Christian Fiction Writers to get in with a group of like minded writers.
I'm thrilled to share these inspirational reads with you and I hope you enjoy them.
