Ariana Rose, Contemporary Romance Author
Author and hopeless romantic, Ariana Rose, dabbles in all forms of contemporary romance. All her novels do have one thing in common. Her heroes and heroines are as passionate about life and love as they care about each other.  A mother of two, she hails from the Midwest. Born and raised in the Minneapolis area, she's always been a storyteller and known to have a flair for the dramatic. Her daughter is just across the border attending college and is a go-to for all things web design. Her son is a busy middle schooler who loves all things penguins, science, gaming, cars, and the weather. He's been known to hang in many Storm Chaser marathons with Mom. Ariana's fur baby (a beagle/lab) can be found curled next to her while she writes unless chasing squirrels and finding puppy friends becomes a more pressing issue.  When Ariana is not writing, she can be found at the rink in a figure skating lesson, binge-watching her favorite shows, watching an 80s movie she's seen hundreds of times, exploring history, or traveling to any of her current or new favorite places.  She first published in August of 2018. Her Stone Trilogy was the leaping point. Her next novel, Twisted, in K. Bromberg's Driven World, will follow with its sequel Entwined in the summer of 2021. You can find her first sports romance, Bitter Edge, in the Cocky Hero World.  Read more about Ariana on Jeny's TattleTales at https://jenyheckman.com/tattletales/ --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jeny-heckman/support

Marilynn Barr, Paranormal Romance Author
PARANORMAL ROMANCE AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT ON: Marilynn Barr  Marilyn Barr currently resides in the wilds of Kentucky with her husband, son, and rescue cats. She has a diverse background containing experiences as a child prodigy turned medical school reject, published microbiologist, special education/inclusion science teacher, homeschool mother of a savant, certified spiritual & energy healer, and advocate for the autistic community. This puts her in the position to bring tales containing heroes who are regular people with different ability levels and body types, in a light where they are powerful, lovable, and appreciated.  When engaging with the real world, she is collecting characters, empty coffee cups, and unused homeschool curricula. She is a sucker (haha) for cheesy horror movies, Italian food, punk music, black cats, bad puns, and all things witchy.  Read more at https://jenyheckman.com/tattletales/authorspotlight/marilynn-barr --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jeny-heckman/support

Rebecca Queen, YA Fantasy Debut Author
Welcome to a new episode of Jeny's TattleTales. This week the spotlight belongs to Rebecca Queen, a YA Fantasy Author, who is just about ready to launch her debut book, Elysian.  Rebecca joins us all the way from Peru for an author interview. Here is a quick bio for Rebecca:  Rebecca Queen was born in Lima, Peru. When she was still young, her family relocated to California where she lived in the city of Rancho Cucamonga. One day when she was around 11 years old, she stumbled upon a 4Kids TV forum where she met a group of girls who were into the same cartoon that she was. Together, they started writing stories through roleplaying games. That's how Rebecca discovered her love of stories and how she first became an avid reader. Reading wasn't enough though, because Rebecca realized that there were stories shaping in her head that no one would be able to get down on paper but her. Thus, she started writing. She has a degree in International relations and likes to spend time with her horses and dogs during her free time. She also has a youtube channel where she talks about anything from books, movies, and tv shows, to life in Peru (yes, she currently lives in Peru!)  Read more about Rebecca and her book on Jeny's Tattle Tales on my website at https://jenyheckman.com/spotlight/reb...​ Listen on the Jeny's Tattle Tale Podcast: https://anchor.fm/jeny-heckman​ Order Rebecca's book at: https://amzn.to/3qyrkpj --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jeny-heckman/support

Supernatural and Horror Mysteries with Author Robert Herold
Do you like supernatural and horror mysteries? If you do, then join me for an interview with author Robert Herold.  The supernatural has always had the allure of forbidden fruit, ever since Robert's mother refused to allow him, as a boy, to watch creature features on late-night TV. She caved-in. (Well, not literally!)  As a child, fresh snow provided him the opportunity to walk out onto his neighbor’s lawns halfway and make paw prints with his fingers as far as he could stretch. Robert would retrace the paw and boot prints, then fetch the neighbor kids and point out that someone turned into a werewolf on their front lawn! (They were skeptical.)  Robert has pursued many interests over the years, but the supernatural always called to him. You could say that he was haunted.  Finally, following the siren’s call, he wrote The Eidola Project, based on a germ of an idea he had as a teenager.  Robert joined me on my Jeny's TattleTale Podcast to talk about his latest book and the supernatural.... He hopes his books give you the creeps, and he means that in the best way possible!  Read more Robert including additional questions not in this video on my website at https://jenyheckman.com/spotlight/robert-herold.​ Featured book: Moonlight Becomes You.

Darcy Carson on Author Spotlight on Jeny's Tattle Tales
Award-winning author, Darcy Carson, is Jeny Heckman's guest on Jeny's Tattle Tale and the author on spotlight on Jeny's website, jenyheckman.com. Darcy is an award-winning author, who was a born reader. Having a mother who worked in a library helped. She didn’t know that there were fines attached to books she kept reading over and over for decades.  Her first book was published in 2000, a romantic comedy, THE TROUBLE WITH MOTHER, with Hardshell Word Factory, which she won The Emerald City Keeper award. She penned five novellas with Amazon’s Kindle Worlds in the Doublesight, the first one winning Rivers of Ink first place. She has been nominated for numerous RWA chapter writing contests, winning and placing in several. She went on to self-publish a paranormal romance, MAGIC IN THE AIR, set in Seattle about the magic police.  She is currently writing for The Wild Rose Press. Her first book, HE WALKS IN DREAMS, is a fantasy romance and the first in the Dragons Return series. The second book in the series, WOMAN IN THE WOODS, will be out shortly. Dragons come naturally to Darcy as she had a childhood friend named Pepper-Piper, who was a dragon. She also has an Irish historical romance coming out with The Wild Rose Press entitled, TO STEAL AN IRISH HEART.  Prior to publishing, Darcy worked for a major airline manufacturer as an executive secretary. But don’t ask to identity an airplane. They all look the same to her.  Darcy’s hobbies include jewelry making. Stringing beads is very relaxing, zen-like. No thought required. She loves reading, traveling, shopping, and going to the casino to give her money away.   The book we are spotlighting for Darcy this week is She Wakes the Night. Buy the book here.​ Read more about Darcy and a character interview from her book She Wakes the Night on Jeny's Website --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jeny-heckman/support
