Author has written 26 stories for Janet Evanovich.

By way of introduction, I am an accountant who works as the Vice President of Finance for a large non-profit agency in Boston. I grew up in North Carolina and after school moved around a bit before settling down in Massachusetts. Other than that, I am the mother of three terrific boys (ages 12, 8, and 5) and the wife of an amazing man who happens to be an Episcopal Priest (yes, they can marry). Our house isn't the quietest one on the block, but I can't imagine there are any as full of laughter as ours either.

After discovering Janet Evonovich and devouring her books I stumbled into the world of fanfiction and have been hooked ever since. In the Babe/Cupcake debate I am whole heartedly a Babe, but I have to admit that lately I'm becoming more and more of a tart lover and enjoy reading of Stephanie with the Merry Men (I guess I've never been a traditionalist). I love to read and review after living in the imaginations of the writers here, and I have been truly blessed to get to know some of you through the wonderful reviews you have left on my stories as well.

After a bit of a health scare in October of 2012, I took some time off from writing fanfiction to focus on an original novel. It was because of the amazing support I have received here that I decided to step out on my own. I do plan on returning, as the characters in the Plum universe are too much fun to step away from indefinately.

In case you're interested in more current thoughts and happenings, I've just begun a blog on goodreads. You can find it here: https://www (dot)goodreads (dot) com/author_blog_posts/5089644-questions-not-answers Obviously, you have to fix the dots to make the link work, but I'd love to hear your thoughts!

For those of you interested in my original work, it is now available on Amazon: (http://www.amazon.com/A-Killer-Cup-Joe-ebook/dp/B00FITL3KO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1380539338&sr=8-1&keywords=akillercupofjoebyjennifertempleman).

It's also available on Barnes and Noble: (http://www (dot) barnesandnoble (dot) com/w/killer-cup-of-joe-jennifer-templeman/1117005743?ean=2940148373278

Thank you for your encouratgement and support as I've worked on this project. I'd love to hear what you think!
