Hi! I'm Jenn, your Chief Book Babe and local

peddler of love! Thanks for checking out

HEA Book Boutique!


My love of reading came at a very young age,

thanks to a mother who always had more

books on her end table than she could ever

read at once. Trips to the library and full

book bags led me to my first job as a

bookseller at 16 for a chain bookstore in the

mall, which is also where I was introduced to

my first romance novel. The classic bodice

ripper piqued my interest, but my true love of the romance genre wouldn't come until much later.


In college, that love of reading got put aside for a variety of other extra curricular activities. In 2020 I picked up books in a real way again. When a good friend of mine said "Oh, if you like that one you should try A Court of Thorns and Roses!' that was all it took! I read all of Sarah J. Maas' backlist in about a week and a half (ok, it might have been a little longer than that), and then I got a Kindle and started down the indie author rabbit hole.


After leaving a job in non-profit fundraising, I spent some real time trying to imagine how to work a job that didn't feel like work. The answer was somewhere in books and events, and that journey led me here!


HEA Book Boutique is in its infancy stages, but every day brings a new set of opportunities and experiences.


I can't wait to help you find an HEA that's perfect for you!


Sincerely,

Jenn
