Author has written 1 story for Twilight.
Hi, I'm Jennifer Lane. I’ve found that writing fiction is a hell of a lot more fun than slogging through a psychology dissertation! While I write under the name Jennifer Lane, I practice as a psychologist in Ohio. The tales of healing and resilience in my profession have inspired me to write my own stories, planting the seeds for my first novel, With Good Behavior, as well as its sequel, Bad Behavior. I adore stories that make me laugh and cry. In my spare time I enjoy competitive swimming, attending book club, and hanging out with my sisters and their families in Chicago.
*Book Release Announcement*
Fan fiction has been a wonderful way to improve my writing, and I'm thrilled it led to three published novels so far: With Good Behavior, as well as its sequel Bad Behavior, both available atThe books are part of The Conduct Series, which will be a trilogy. I'm almost done writing On Best Behavior (book three).

With Good Behavior:
In a world gripped by organized crime, family dysfunction, and little chance of redemption, is it possible for true love to persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a beautiful psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a handsome naval officer who sacrificed everything to protect a loved one, searching for that love carries a heavy price. When their paths cross outside their parole officer’s door, the attraction is instantaneous. Unfortunately, their hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but also prove deadly to them both.
Grant Madsen’s got issues. He’s still battling his Mafia family and doing everything possible to keep his loved ones safe. With the cruising season coming to an end, he has to find another job soon or he’ll rejoin his father in prison. And he’s trying to convince his rebellious teenage nephew to stay away from their criminal relatives (you can imagine how that’s going). But worst of all, Grant’s parole officer has mandated that he attend therapy.
The only saving grace is that they’re couples sessions with his girlfriend, Sophie Taylor, a fellow parolee who’s struggling with a few issues of her own. Sophie desperately hopes her past with Grant’s brother won’t destroy her future with him. There’s a sleazy professor at work who revels in sexually harassing women in the psychology department. And her father still hates Grant.
Their psychologist has his work cut out for him.
When Grant’s ruthless father hints at a plot to get out of prison, Grant must use everything he’s learned in therapy and beyond to try to stop him. It’s a race against time -- and a race to rescue Sophie from the Mafia’s clutches once again. But this time McSailor and Bonnie refuse to play victims. Can they break the ties that bind?

In March of 2012 my first Young Adult novel launched: Streamline. It's a contemporary romance featuring the sport of swimming, family dysfunction, and the military:
Seems like Leo Scott has it all: looks, brains, and athletic talent. He's captain of his high school swim team with a bright future in college and beyond. But Leo has secrets. His mother's crippling car accident has devastated his family and left Leo to deal with his father's abuse, battered and alone.
Leo's girlfriend Audrey Rose is poised for her own share of success. As one of Florida's top high school swimmers, Audrey dreams of college swimming stardom. But there's an obstacle to her glorious rise to the top. Her number-one supporter-her father-is in prison for murder.
Part murder mystery, part tale of young love in a military family, this gripping story takes readers on a journey from Pensacola to Annapolis. Leo and Audrey must band together to rise above the adversity they encounter and find their true selves in the process. When everything's on the line . . . streamline.
Twilight Fan Fiction
While I was thoroughly entertained by the Twilight series, I felt troubled by some of the choices made by Bella and Edward in developing their romance. Therefore, I wanted to write a story with a feminist bent to it, highlighting the strength of women and a realistic romance. That story is Mimiteh.
Mimiteh is a WINNER of the Indie Twific Award, Best Use of a Parent!!
Mimiteh (a Native American word meaning New Moon) is my first Twilight story, an alternate ending to New Moon.
Consumed by worry about Bella’s depression, Charlie drags her to counseling with a Quileute psychologist, Dr. Nina Carlton. Unbeknownst to Bella, Nina has wolfish relatives in Forks, a past with Charlie, and some special talents of her own. When Alice sees Bella throwing herself into harm's way, Edward races back to Forks. He is torn between staying out of Bella's life, as promised, and saving her from peril. Through a journey forged in therapy and friendship, what will Bella and Edward learn about themselves and their love?
Major gratitude goes out to Leiah (Scarlett_Letters, author of Wild Swan, an awesome fic), who has been pimping Mimiteh like a madwoman. First she recommended this story for the Little Known Ficster:What a lovely review! Thanks, Leiah.
And then, Leiah and my buddy radiofreeamy nominated Mimiteh for the Indie Twific Awards in the categories of Best New Moon Story and Best Use of a Parent.
