Meet Jenna

Jenna Sutton is a former award-winning journalist who traded fact for fiction when she began writing novels. Surprisingly, the research she conducted for her articles provided a lot of inspiration for her books.

Jenna the author of the Riley O’Brien & Co. romances and the new Trinity Distillery series.

Although Jenna calls Texas home, more often than not, she’s somewhere else. Her love’s job takes him all over the country, and she tags along, just like a groupie follows her favorite band.



Get to Know Jenna Better

I splurge on — Skin care products. My husband just shakes his head and tells me that I don't need any expensive face cream because I'm aging well. Yeah, that's his version of a compliment.    

Favorite MovieSixteen Candles used to be my absolute favorite movie. There are just so many things to love about it. But then I saw The DUFF, and I got all kinds of squealy.  

Most annoying habit — Oh, it’s so difficult to choose because I have so many (or so I’ve been told). But it’s probably asking too many questions

I’ve never… — Been skydiving or eaten sushi (I know. I’m really missing out.)

My favorite thing to do — My husband... or perhaps it would be more appropriate to say spending time with my husband.  

Guilty food pleasure — I have recently been introduced to the Hummingbird cake. Have you ever had it? It's a Southern twist on the Italian cream cake, and it has crushed pineapple, bananas, and pecans in the cake with cream cheese frosting. It's orgasmically delicious, to quote Amelia Winger, the heroine of All the Right Places. 

Must-see TV — I think I watch too much TV. I'm addicted to How to Get Away with Murder and iZombie. My other must-see TV is Younger, the new comedy created by Darren Star, the guy who produced Sex and the City. And I'm a long-time fan of Law & Order: SVU. I also love a couple of SyFy shows: 12 Monkeys and Dark Matter. And I can't forget The Last Ship on TNT, which is a summer show. (I told you... I watch too much TV)

Least favorite chore — Ugh. Grocery shopping, for sure. I much prefer laundry.

Playing on my car radio — Alt Nation, channel 36 on satellite radio. Some of my favorite bands are: Kings of Leon, Foals, and Glass Animals. 

Last non-fiction book I read — I rarely read non-fiction. If you have suggestions, email me them to me at jenna@jennasutton.com

I wish I knew how to — Ice skate, sew, and hack like a geeky criminal

My dream vacation — A river cruise through Russia

My favorite color — Purple 

Dog or cat person — Both!
