Author, author... #giveaway all about it!!  


Hi Jennifer, so happy to have you here today.  Let’s get right to it if we shall…


Do real life events find their way into your stories?

Oh absolutely, it’s nearly impossible for my real life events and people not to make their way into my stories. I try to leave out anything to obvious, but there is a ton of stuff from real life that is written out in my stories.

Do you ever mimic family members or people you know when you choose characters?

Yes, I do, sometimes there is a character who just reminds me so much of someone I know or the other way around, and I end up writing them. In one story I started out with a character being modeled after my husband, but later he became his own person and nothing like my husband.

Do you find yourself going back to the same inspiration for each story or is it always something different?

It’s always different. But, I am inspired by so many different things, even the music I listen to is different for each book.

When do you write?  Early morning? During the day sometime or all day?  After the kids go to bed?

I write whenever I get the chance. I have five children, so I can write with a freaking tornado blowin the walls down around me. But, I prefer to write either early before they get up or late after they go to bed.

How do you feel about marketing your book?

I actually like marketing. I’ve discovered its sort of something I’m good at, and I don’t mind doing it at all, actually…I enjoy it.

What social sites do you feel work best for marketing?

The social networks I stick to are Facebook, Google + and Twitter.

Do you like to pitch stories to your publisher or do you wait until you have written the story and have a final manuscript to turn in?

I am self published, so I really don’t have to worry about all of that. But if I were published, I would wait till I had the book. What if you had a good idea, but the writing just wouldn’t come…that would be bad.

Is there any other genre that you would love to try writing?  If so, what is it?

I may try my hand at some romance with a touch of naughtiness. If I do, it will probably be under a pen name though.

Do you always/ever see yourself as the heroine/hero when you write a story?

Pretty much never. I just can’t see myself as a heroine in the stories I write, but if I were to write one about a crazy mom who feels like she is losing her mind…maybe then I would see myself as the heroine. lol


Just for fun, I have a few personal questions, 

Favorite 5

1)    Favorite Male Actor  - Nicholas Cage

2)    Favorite vehicle – 67 Chevy Camero

3)    Favorite way to relax - Reading

4)    Favorite ice cream – Moose Tracks

5)    Favorite outfit – Jeans and tank top with flip flops

And for a bonus:  If you could pick any place in the world to live, besides where you are now, where would it be?  (Of course, without the hindrance of jobs or money needed)

Italy or Ireland, these are my ultimate destinations!

The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter

Complete Collection

Parts I-VI

Genre: YA Paranormal

June 2012

This special edition of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter contains parts I-VI, the complete collection. Fourteen-year-old Chloe witnesses her mother’s murder at the hands of a vampire. Before the vampire can kidnap her, there is an unexpected rescue by a group of vampire hunters.

Overwhelmed by the feeling of safety, Chloe passes out and they whisk her away to their small community. When Chloe wakes, she comes face to face with the only other living relative, besides her mother, whom she has ever met: her grandfather. Chloe’s mother kept her hidden from the family; now, Chloe tries to unveil the family secrets.

Through her grandfather, she learns her mother was a vampire hunter. In fact, her entire family is descended from the powerful bloodlines of vampire hunters. Chloe agrees to join the family she has never known for one reason only: Chloe vows to kill the vampire responsible for her mother’s murder. With vengeance in her soul, Chloe is even more determined to follow through on her vow when she discovers the true identity of her enemy and how he is connected to her.

Experience the world of vampire hunter’s, vampires and mythology with Chloe in this exciting series.




I took the first book off the stack and examined the cover. It was titled Vampires throughout History. The cover was leather and so old it was stiff and cracked in spots. The pages showed signs of age too, yellowing and stiff to the touch. There was no table of contents, so it looked like I was going to have to scan the entire book for what I was wanting. I flipped the pages carefully, so as not to tear any of them.


After an hour of scanning and about half way through the book, I found something referring to vampire children.


Although extremely rare, the natural-born offspring of vampires exist throughout the world. These rare beings are called the dhampir. Dhampir are usually the product of a vampire and mortal. The most common of these unions is a male vampire impregnating a mortal woman. Vampires, both male and female, are seductive in nature and some mortals came willingly to these unions. However, the majority of dhampir born were produced through an act of rape.


Solitary by nature, it is uncommon for a vampire to settle with any one mate for long. The children of vampires, the dhampir, more often than not exhibit all the characteristics of their vampire parent. The strength, speed and agility are the usual hereditary traits that the children develop. They are not always born with these traits but develop them as they grow into adulthood.


The dhampir are day walkers. Some of these children are sensitive to the sunlight but will not perish in the direct rays. Most have no sensitivity at all. Drinking the fresh blood of mortals is also not usually required of the dhampir; however, some have a liking for it. Very few actually need it to survive.

Most dhampir are rejected by the vampire species because of their mortality and weaknesses. Mortals often reject the dhampir, as well, due to their vampirism, so they frequently remain outcast.


Dhampir are known for becoming vampire killers. Their closeness to the vampires and their vampire characteristics make them powerful vampire hunters. The unique ability to track and kill vampires is specific to only the dhampir and the mythological race of vampire hunters.


Historically, dhampir became vampire hunters as a trade. Towns and villages became plagued by vampires who were terrorizing their homes and killing their people. The dhampir accepted contracts in exchange for monetary payment and used their likeness to their vampire counterparts to exterminate the vampires.


Holy crap, that was a lot to process. The more I read the passages, the more I understood that my being a hunter was more than my heritage; it was my history and my future. Everything about my bloodlines had hunters involved.

Jennifer Malone Wright
Jennifer Malone Wright resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children. Between the craziness of taking care of her children, whose ages range from fourteen all the way down to six months, and being a homemaker, Jennifer has little time left for herself. The time she does have left, usually leading far into the night, is spent working on freelance work or her beloved fiction.
When she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what has led to her first novel “The Birth of Jaiden.”
In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last ten years has made her a bit of a nomad and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.
Jennifer is also the author of The Birth of Jaiden, a paranormal novel filled with action, suspense, and even a love story.
