Katie Jennings

Katie Jennings has it all as an author; she can make you fall in love with her characters or bite your nails down as you get lost in her stories of love, betrayal and murder. She gives us everything in one book of delightful reading. She has earned the title of author with the books that she produces with just the creativity of her beautiful mind. 

In Katie's own words; this is what she has to say about her love for writing. 

"Nothing can compare to the exhilaration of discovering, at last, a mode of release for the imagination. Mine came, after years of struggling to visualize my creativity, in the form of written word. I found myself with my nose constantly in a book, absorbing the life of the characters and the beauty of the setting. It was intoxicating, to say the least, and the only thing I knew was that I wanted to give writing a shot, and take the thousands of characters and storylines in my head and put them down on paper, and form them into something real and compelling.

In truth, I'm just a girl from a small town north of Los Angeles, with an imagination for days and thank goodness a keyboard at my fingertips. And even though my husband thinks I'm a nerd and my mom is undoubtedly my biggest fan, at the end of the day I'm loving life and enjoying giving breath to the characters living in my heart, and sharing with others all the creativity I can harness.

I believe in true love, and I've always believed in happy endings. And that is just the beginning of the story."  

Reviewers are raving about her books and what she has brought to the table as a top rising author; Here are just what a few readers have had to say 

 "Wow! This word doesn't even capture the writing ability of Jennings.

In WHEN EMPIRES FALL, Jennings invites us into the world of the wealthy elite. With a vibrant tapestry of rich characters and perfect pacing, it's a hard book to put down.

Jennings paints characters with such depth and clarity, their breath transcends the page. She has the natural gift of providing vivid details--people's appearances, including clothing and hair style and scene layout--in an interesting and succinct manner.

Her character Grant Vesser made me think of Harrison Ford in his role of Linus Larrabee from Sabrina, although, Grant is under 30 years of age. But his complexity, his sense of duty and self-imposed rules and standards make for one conflicted, and hence, extremely believable character.

But Jennings is not only gifted with character development to rival the New York Times best-sellers, her pacing is excellent. If only the drive to keep reading was compelled by the characters, Jennings tantalizes her readers at every chapter and scene break. Her characters are addictive. You spend so much time in each of their heads, you have a connection to them and a visual reaction. You care about what they're going through. I found myself reacting to their plights--wanting to comfort them, or tell them to loosen up.

If you're looking for a read with characters you become bonded with, superb pacing, and as a bonus, beautiful formatting, I highly recommend WHEN EMPIRES FALL. And, as a bonus, there's going to be a second Vessar Legacy novel coming out next spring. I'll look forward to it."

Another says 

"Full of dark family secrets that have been carried down through the generations. I connected with each character on a personal level. This is a realistic view of how money and power turns families against each other and greed brings out their true human nature.

When Empires Fall is a must read."
