Jen and Sarah met over 14 years ago and together have experienced weddings, births, interstate relocations, home renovations, overseas holidays, cyclones and the odd hens’ night kidnapping.
After many a long distant phone call from one end of the country to the other, Jen and Sar discovered their love for Urban fantasy – a little romance for Jen and a hint of supernatural for Sar. After their favourite book series came to an end and the conversation returned to husbands and children, they decided to take matters in to their own hands, writing their urban fantasy. A crazy late night conversation turning into a wild adventure, which cemented their friendship and created the Enlightened book series!
Jen is passionate about all things books. Her first written work was available for loan in her primary school library when she was in the fourth grade.
It was Sarah that introduced Jen to stories of the supernatural and she is now an avid reader of this genre. Given this Jen still cannot go past a good romance novel, her first love was Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice but she is yet to have the promised marathon session of the BBC mini-series with Sarah.
When not on the phone to Sarah, Jen can be found chasing after her two young boys, relaxing in her garden or running with her husband. For Jen the hardest thing about writing a book is putting down whatever it is she is currently reading!
A movie buff and keen reader, Sarah has forever had a fascination with the supernatural. Her introduction to the horror genre was with Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot and she now devours Urban Fantasy with alacrity. While she would never pick up a romance, Sarah does enjoy supernatural action laced with a little love.
Originally from the ACT, Sarah relocated with her family to Far North Queensland. Swapping the cold winters and threat of Pride and Prejudice marathons, for cyclones and crocodiles!
When not on the phone to Jen, Sarah loves going out for Sushi with her two daughters, watching her favourite TV shows with her husband and planning her next renovation project.
And yes, their phone bills are impressive.
