Hi, I’m Jennifer Farwell, author of Seven Weeks to Forever, a YA novel about unstoppable love and impossible choices, and Rock Star’s Girl, a sassy and sarcastic look at what happens when one young woman’s personal life starts making tabloid headlines. Seven Weeks to Forever is an Amazon #1 best seller in Metaphysical Fiction (March 2015), an Amazon #1 Hot New Release in Metaphysical Fiction (May 2014), and has appeared on Amazon’s Teen and YA Contemporary Romance best seller list. Rock Star’s Girl rang in 2012 on Amazon’s Women’s Fiction best seller list. Both novels are published by Booktrope.
I’ve been writing since the day I picked up a navy blue Crayola and started scribbling all over my parents’ freshly painted white walls (true story), and somewhere along the way that led to a Master of Arts degree in English and an honors Bachelor of Journalism degree. Thanks for stopping by my site!
Here are a few fun facts about me:
- I once ran a web site called the SPPNTCJ (Society for Preventing Parents from Naming Their Children Jennifer) that began as a joke on an email list I was on. Imagine my surprise when it ended up receiving millions of visitors and was covered by Yahoo! Internet Life magazine, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Thunder Bay Television News, 580 CKPR radio, California State University (Chico), and several “Cool Site of the Day” and “Cool Site of the Hour” web sites, to name only a few. The site was also studied on a U.S. college course — imagine being in high school and getting interview requests from college students because they’re studying your site! — and it’s still noted in psychology textbook Psychology and the Challenges of Life: Adjustment in the New Millennium by Jeffrey S. Nevid and Spencer A. Rathus. In the 2007 hardcover edition, see page 203.
- I’m the author of two published books with a third one on the way in 2015, but the first book I ever wrote was a birthday present for my mom. I think I was around 9 or 10 years old when I wrote it.
- My favorite place in the world to be is a Kundalini yoga class at Nine Treasures Yoga. In a perfect world, my schedule would let me be at a Kundalini yoga class every single day.
- I’m the founder of Starry Kind of Girl, a site designed to help you live a starry kind of life.
Let’s see, what else. Favorite food? Apples. Favorite book? Anything by Michael Ondaatje. Favorite TV shows? The Royals, Homeland, Reign, and The Voice. Hobbies? Writing, reading, playing with my dog, Kundalini yoga, meditation, hiking, watching hockey games, going to concerts, and occasionally working with photographers.
I love to talk with readers and other authors! You can pretty much always find me posting on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Goodreads, broadcasting on Periscope, and updating my story on Snapchat.
