This week’s author is Jenn D. Young. I stumbled upon audiobooks for her Shadows Ascending Trilogy and fell in love with it. I was so blown away when she reached out and responded to one of my posts. She’s an amazing person on top of being an amazing author. I fully recommend giving her a chance!
Her Books (Click book photos to buy):
I’ve lived my life on the run. Always looking over my shoulder. Waiting for the day that they would find me. Everyone I have ever loved has been ripped from me until I have nothing left but memories and dreams.
For years, he has been the only thing to keep me sane. My demon prince from my dreams.
His voice haunts me. Stirs me. Makes me yearn for him.
But will I ever find him? Or will he find me?
As my abilities manifest, will I be able to maintain control, or will they control me?
For millennia, my life has been incomplete. Until I saw her.
For years, I’ve watched over her. Protecting her from the monsters that chase her. Yet, I’m the biggest threat to her safety.
My perfect Nephilim. My mate.
Her face is there every time I close my eyes. Her voice soothes my very soul.
Will I be able to shield her from the horrors of my world or will I fail and finally claim her as mine, damn the consequences?

Interview With Jenn D. Young:
- Tell us about the books you’ve published so far. Can you tell us about some of your upcoming novels?
I’ve published 11 books so far with number 12 coming out on the 16th. I have a wide variety of books from paranormal to fantasy and then my very first contemporary romance novel coming out on 7/16. I love to blend angst, humor, and world building together to create vast worlds that have you hanging on every word. I love strong, yet vulnerable characters that are real, even though they may possess vast supernatural powers. No one is ever fully perfect, and I love to add flaws that shape and make them the person they are. Love in the Stars is my newest book and features a strong female main character that has been hurt in the past and doesn’t know if she can let herself feel again. Christian, the male main character, has spent so many years taking care of everyone else that when love comes to slap him in the face, he doesn’t really know what to do. They find their way to each other and learn that it isn’t always too good to be true.
- What was the moment you knew you wanted to be an author?
Ever since I can remember I was jotting down random ideas or making up crazy worlds in my head. I actually had the idea for my first series of books when I was fourteen years old. I’ve been a huge reader and it wasn’t until I started getting more involved in the book community, that I actually started writing and told myself that, hey, I can actually do this. 2 years and 12 books later, here I am!
- What are some things you do to overcome doubts about your writing?
Naturally, I’m a very anxious and self deprecating person. I constantly doubt myself and my writing. I had to learn that what I write may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there are a lot of people that love my books and it keeps me writing. I’ve met so many amazing people on my author journey that help keep me going and pushing forward. I owe them the world.
- Have any actual life experiences reflected in your writing?
Each of my female main characters have a piece of me in them. Whether it be my coffee addiction, or past traumas and mental health issues. I like to showcase that no one is perfect. You have to overcome your issues and with your mate(s)/partner(s) you can become a better and fuller person.
- Who was your easiest character to write about and why? What was your hardest and why?
Easiest has probably been my Shadows Ascending Trilogy, Lorelei and Vincent. They’ve always been my soul babies, the idea I came up with when I was 14 and has stuck with me for all those years after. Their story flowed, and once I learned my voice and style, it just became even easier. Don’t know if I would classify anything as the ‘hardest’ I’ve ever written. Once I learned to go with the flow and let the characters do what they wanted, instead of fighting me, I moved forward. (Thanks Dragon’s Redemption. Learned that one the hard way. Let the characters do what they want. Don’t resist 😛)
