Literary Birthday – 11 June – Jennifer L. Armentrout

Happy Birthday, Jennifer L. Armentrout, born 11 June 1980.


  1. … one of the things I do is try to end a lot of scenes and chapters on mini cliffhangers. I think when it comes to plot twists you want to keep your readers on their toes.
  2. I think the trick to writing believable characters is finding each character’s own individual and unique voice. Find their voice, and, hopefully, the rest will come naturally.
  3. You have to write what you want to write, not what you need to write.
  4. I wish I had some kind of awe-inspiring story to tell how I get inspired, but I don’t. I get bored easily so I make things up in my head to entertain myself.
  5. I write every day for about 8-10 hours. I don’t have much of a social life because I just don’t have the time right now. I have too many books to write.
  6. I’ve written a book in as little as seven days, but it has also taken me a couple of months. But, on average, it usually takes me around a month.
  7. Write every day, even if it’s only a few 100 words.
