Jennifer Hudson Taylor writes historical and contemporary Christian fiction set in Europe and the Carolinas. Her debut novel, Highland Blessings, released this month, and the music on her video trailer (below) really gets to me.
You can order a copy from Amazon and even a signed copy direct from the author here!
How can you not love someone who has an ink bottle, quill pen, cardinal, and a dogwood blossom on her website and blog?
Jennifer lives in North Carolina, and in addition to writing, she speaks on several topics related to faith, writing, and parenting special-needs children. She’s also a genealogy buff. I can’t wait to get to know her better.
I accidentally asked her a couple questions (okay, three) that couldn’t be answered with just one word. My bad. But I still like the questions and the answers, so they stay.
And, wow! So many followup questions I want to ask!

Jennifer Hudson Taylor on One Thing
What one thing would you like to say to your readers or future readers?
What one thing would you like to say to fellow writers or aspiring writers?
If you are unpublished, never give up on your dream of publication. God’s timing will come. To all writers, don’t get so caught up in the “writing rules” and judging and critiquing that you forget how to read for pleasure.
Highland warrior Bryce MacPhearson kidnaps Akira MacKenzie on her wedding day to honor a promise he made to his dying father. When he forces Akira to wed him, hoping to end a half-century feud between their clans, she struggles to overcome her anger and resentment. Yet her strength in the Lord becomes a witness to Bryce. But there is a traitor in their midst . . . and murder is the ultimate weapon.
Thanks so much, Jenn for taking the time to help us get to know you better!
