Meet Jenna Kernan

Jenna Kernan, author


Thanks for visiting. 

I write heart-pounding adventure mixed with heart-racing romance. All my stories, whether romantic suspense, Western historical or dark paranormal, have loads of action, adventure and heat!

I've written over 30 books, been nominated for the RITA twice and won the Book Buyers Best Award once.  My Harlequin Intrigue, APACHE PROTECTORS series is one of my most popular.  Fast read, really fast.

Like rich, world-building stories filled with supernatural heroes and heart-racing romance? Try my paranormal romance series -- The Trackers, which was inspired on Lakota mythology.

I was born in the Leatherstocking Region of Upstate New York but a job offer brought me down from the mountains to the Hudson Valley just north of New York City where I lived and worked for thirty years, all the while writing when I could.  In 2015, I left that position to write full-time.

This is the fun stuff, getting out and meeting readers and authors. Going to industry parties and lunching with editors and agents. I have to admit all these adventures feel a little like Cinderella time – you know, the hours between 8 and Midnight, which are not remotely like the other twenty hours of the day. Meeting my readers really is the best part of my job.

I’m an outdoors kind of gal. So, if you can do it outside, I usually enjoy it, with the notable exception of golf (too organized and too frustrating) and skiing (too dangerous and too dangerous). I’m a rock hound, fossil hunter and gold prospector.  

What’s my best find? The fossilized bear tooth, some nice nuggets and a one carat blue sapphire I found in Montana.

In 2016 when my husband and I moved to sunny Florida where I am pursuing my writing within the sound of the surf.
