Jennifer Griffith is the author of a growing number of published novels, some of them “Mo-Ro” (Mormon Romance), and one of them “Sumo-Ro” (sumo romance) – BIG IN JAPAN, which has been optioned for film. She’s working on a screen adaptation of her novella SUPER DAISY, the story of a disgraced former beauty queen who gets rotating super powers. Her great love is writing contemporary romantic comedy, like her novels, IMMERSED, part of a six-book RIPPLE EFFECT ROMANCE collaboration, or THE LOST ART, a cozy mystery with a museum worker who gives herself a makeover just in time to catch the attention of the handsome FBI agent and the quirky billionaire. She is working on two different series right now, one about lawyers in love (her husband is a lawyer, so she knows this is possible) and another called THE GODDESSES AND GEEKS SERIES. This may or may not be autobiographical. Just kidding. It's about the goddesses from Greek and Roman mythology popping up in contemporary days and the men who win their hearts. Ah, love. Jennifer holds a degree in English/Technical Writing from Utah State University. She worked for the United States Congress as a Legislative Correspondent (code name for a person who writes legislative letters) and now works as a freelance editor. She has been both traditionally and self-published. Jennifer and her husband Gary live in the Arizona desert, raising their five brilliant kids.
