Interview with Jennifer Probst, author of Searching for Beautiful
19 Jun 2015
Tell us a little bit about your new release, Searching for Beautiful.
I’m very excited about this book. It’s the third in my Searching For series, and features a hero named Wolfe who was first introduced in The Marriage Merger at nineteen years old. Readers have been watching him grow through the past two books and now it’s finally his turn! This is a friends-to-lovers romance, about a runaway bride who needs to rebuild her life, and deals with many deeper, emotional issues of abuse.
Where is your happy place?
My kids, my dogs and my desk where I write. If I have them I’m happy. OMG – and my hubby of course LOL!
Where did you write Searching for Beautiful?
I always work in my office, it’s my structured, safe place where I transition into my “job.”
Who was your childhood hero?
Nora Roberts. I loved her books so much, and they’d get me through so many rough times in my childhood. Actually, many authors were my heroes!
Who is your favorite couple from literature?
Probably Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler!
What is the one movie that you can quote the most?
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
Being able to reach and touch strangers in the world through your own words. It’s a powerful, humbling thing.
What is a typical day like for you?
I put the kids on the bus, do an hour of email and social media, then get to work. Stop to pick kids up from school, spend a little time, go back to work. Then beg my hubby to cook dinner, spend some evening time with the family, and squeeze in a bit more work unless I’m tapped out. If I made my writing goal or am ahead(sigh – I’m never ahead!) then I read and watch tv. Boring but happy!
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
Truth in speech, simplicity in manner, firmness of mind.
