From the Author
I'm not sure how to classify Seventh Sanctuary. The story is in many ways about the spirituality of sex, and there is quite a bit of sex in the novella, but I wouldn't call it erotica. The depth of emotions of the characters makes it more romantic or possibly even literary. And the goddess Inanna is important to all of the main characters, so you might say that she is the inspiration for the story. For me, ancient goddesses are a source of wonder, nostalgia, grief and inspiration. Hopefully, that awe comes through in the book.

About the Author
Her first two novels, As You Wish, a time travel, and Eternally Yours, a ghost romance, were originally published by Jove (Penguin Group USA). After that, Jen's love for Jane Austen led to several works set in Regency England--one from Leisure Books and three from Zebra. In recent years, her fascination with archaeology inspired The Five-Day Dig, a contemporary mystery/romance set near Pompeii; Seventh Sanctuary, a steamy novella of ancient Sumeria; and Templum, a time travel featuring a modern heroine and an ancient-Roman hero.
Her new novella Wish I Might is the prequel to As You Wish. Next up is the third installment in the series.
Jen and her husband, Martin, an Aussie ex-pat, live outside of Philadelphia but travel to see ancient ruins and Formula 1 races as often as they can. She's an art enthusiast, a fan of film, and the proud aunt of three amazing nephews.
