I grew up in a family of artists--painters, musicians, furniture makers, chefs, actors, and writers. The entrepreneurial spirit runs strong in our genes. It was no surprise, then, that I married a Renaissance man, talented in visual arts and music. We are living a creative life.
I was also fortunate to grow up with some great cooks around me--my grandmother, my mother, my stepmother, and our housekeeper. I learned something from each of them about cooking that still influences me to this very day. Most of all, I learned that cooking for others is a loving act.
So, whenever I read a book that includes elements of creativity like cooking or decorating or music, I am happy. I can relate. Like the great Kay Scarpetta mysteries that sometimes include actual recipes. Or when I read a book about a character that makes a living without relying on an employer. That makes me happy, too. As a long-time employee, I like that idea. I think a lot of people like that idea.
Life's journey has introduced me to people in many walks of life. What I have found in common with everyone is that they all have a way of expressing creativity. It might be in baking made-from-scratch cakes; it might be working on cars; it might be in photography; it could be in how they care for their children. The spark is there, in us all.
I have spent my career as a writer and editor. And one day, I thought, I'm going to write the book that I want to read. The idea began to tumble around in my mind. I already loved romance novels, but wanted to add an element that would always be in my novels. That's when I decided to write romance novels about creative and free spirits. Because all of us have creativity; all of us have a free spirit, manifesting itself in our cooking and gardening, in how we decorate our homes, in how we make our living, in how we love the people and pets in our lives.
I started to write Love Weaver, drawing on a time when I actually was a weaver. I didn't know when I started the book where it would take me. It sort of wrote itself as I explored creativity and the issues that people have when they fall in love, issues that might be unknown to them but make their way into the relationship anyway.
Thank you for reading Love Weaver. I've published two other kindle romance novels that I'd like to invite you to check out. One is Hand-Me-Down Love. It's about a woman who runs an antique and vintage shop in a little bay town. She promises her dying sister that she will look after her husband. That's when the complications begin.
The second one is Come Down in Time, a time travel romance. Be sure to leave a review if you enjoy them.

I am a Jennifer Ransom fan for life! I really loved her 1st two books Love Weaver and Hand-Me-Down Love, so I could not wait to read this book, and it certainly did not disappoint! It is so well-written and so descriptive that I was drawn in immediately! Come Down In Time (A Time Travel Romance) covers so many emotions - from heartbreak to complete joy, confusion to absolute certainty, loneliness to completeness...and I experienced each of them in this treasure. Jennifer so artfully takes us on fascinating journeys in a young couple's lives through time travel, and does such a wonderful job that it truly left me pondering the possibility. Thank you, Jennifer Ransom for this "far-more-than-a-romance" novel and I cannot wait to read your next one!
A great storyline and a quick, interesting read but the narrative style is lacking. The story unfolds as if telling a synopsis with details here and there, most likely because the author was trying to take on so much time in a short novel, but there's no engrossing style. It was dry, basic, elementary writing, at times unfeeling and static. If I hadn't been on an airplane unable to download anymore books onto my phone, I probably wouldn't have given it a chance. Once halfway through though, it held my interest better. The ideas were great, characters a bit developed, but the author could dabble some more on a stronger narrative presence and some more sensory detail (rather than grocery lists and 2 sentence clinical sex scenes).

Interesting and intriguing concept for a novel. The writer, Jennifer Ransom, takes her readers back in time to deal with the main character Jamie Walter's guilt and how things might have been different if only she had made different choices. Would things have turned out differently? Pick up a copy and find out for yourself.
