Everyone please welcome Jennifer! Thank you for giving me the chance to feature you. Also, a big shout-out to The Teen Book Scene for putting together this phenomenal tour. In this guest post, Ashlyn, the main character in Overprotected tells us her top five favorite books. Enjoy!
In her words, "I've written since junior high school. An only child, I grew up writing big stories about big families. I also write YA under the name of JM Warwick. My hometown of Palos Verdes, California figures in much of my work, as does my current home of Pleasant Grove, Utah and other favorite places. I love to travel. They say "write what you know" and I do. I am a mother, I have six children, five cats and a huge doberman/dane dog. I have a supportive husband and we've been married 25 years. Our lives, though challenging with a handicapped child who has autism, are centered in our family. My life experiences have worked into all of my novels. Some more heavily than others, but parts of me are in each story. I love stories rich in family drama, where family members overcome obstacles through love and miracles."
