Jennifer Davids ~ Buckeye Dreams

It's a great pleasure to welcome Jennifer Davids to Ink Dots this week. Jennifer has been writing down stories since she got an A++ on her ninth grade creative writing assignment. She resides in the U.S. in Central Ohio with her husband, two children and one terribly fussy cat. A member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and a graduate of The Ohio State University, she makes room to write in between being a busy wife and mom.

Buckeye Dreams  ~ Visit Ohio in the latter half of the 1800s, when rebuilding the country also involves rebuilding lives stripped of hope. Katherine has lost her home, Adele has lost her husband, and Anne has lost her dreams. Can each have their joy restored in romances with men who are also deeply wounded by their own pasts? Find out in this inspiring three-book collection by author Jennifer A. Davids.

Jennifer Says…

If I could explore anywhere in the world tomorrow, it would be... First, thanks for having me Dotti! The answer to that would be Great Britain. I’ve been over there twice now and I so want to see more! The first time I went over I got to see Highclere Castle where they film Downton Abbey and just this past summer my kids and I got to go to the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff. I got to stand next to David Tennant’s TARDIS! J I may write historical fiction but I love scifi too! You're very welcome, Jen. So great to have you visit. :) 

The best thing I did today is... Well, I do all my writing during the day and four nights a week I work as an evening page at my local library. So writing books by day and taking care of them by night = best day ever! Oh wow... what's a library evening page? I've never heard of one... 

A secret pleasure of mine is... There’s an ice cream shop near one of the libraries I frequent. Sometimes when I’m by myself dropping off a book or picking one up, I get an ice cream cone. And I don’t tell my husband or kids I got ice cream without them. So SHHHH don’t tell anyone! ;) I'm not telling. I promise. 

I wish I could relive the day when I... Oh you’re going to make me choose just one? I don’t know if I can – there are a lot to choose from. God has richly blessed me. I would have to choose the moment I got baptized. Yeah. That one is right at the top.

When I was a child I dreamed I would... Be an actress. However when I got a little older, that changed to being an author so I guess I am living my childhood dream. 

I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but... I didn’t like to read when I was little. My teachers told my mom I needed to read more so, wise woman that she is, my mom took me to the library and we found a book that made me fall in love with reading: Eddie and Gardenia by Carolyn Haywood. What a cute story. Love it, Jen. Thanks so much for being my guest and I wish you every success with Buckeye Dreams. 


For a chance to win a copy of Buckeye Dreams, tell us about the first book you read that made you fall in love with reading. (Great question, Jen ~ thanks so much for suggesting it.) Leave your answer in the comments below and I'll announce the winner next Monday. 

Good luck and happy reading,
