Official Bio:

Jove was born and raised against a backdrop of orchards and potato fields. The youngest of four children, she was raised in a conservative, Christian home and began asking why at a very young age, much to the consternation of her mother and grandmother. At the customary age of eighteen, she fled southern Idaho in pursuit of broader minds and fewer traffic jams involving the local livestock. The road didn’t end in Portland, Oregon, but there were many confusing freeway interchanges that a girl from the sticks was ill-prepared to deal with. As a result, she has lived in the Portland metro area for over twenty years and still can’t figure out how she manages to spend so much time in traffic when there’s not a stray sheep or cow in sight.

Liz McMullen.1She lives with her partner, a woman deserving of sainthood for withstanding life with Jove for so many years. Between them they share a collection of six children, one dog, one cat, nine chickens, a mortgage payment, one sedan, and a cushy SUV big enough to hold the Lesbian Brady Bunch on their family outings. One day she hopes to live in a house that doesn’t generate a never ending honey-do list.

Incidentally, she never stopped asking why, but did expand her arsenal of questions to include who, what, when, where and, most important of all, how. In those questions, a story is born.

Her books include Uncommon Romance, Love and Devotion, Indelible, Chaps, Split the Aces, and Edge of Darkness. They are available from Bold Strokes Books.

    I just finished reading Edge of Darkness and I enjoyed it very much. But I do have a question. You indicated that something was different in Braxston’s treatment of Diana a while after the gay bar scene, but you never said what. You also, indicated that something was different concerning Jake & Braxston husband and wife relationship., there again I don’t know what happened. Was Braxston jealous of Diana and Cami? Did she have more feelings for Diana than discribed? Or did I just not understand what you wrote?

    By the way this web site is awesome.


  2. Somebody once asked me if I could have an affair with any of my characters, who would it be? Without a doubt, my playmate of choice would be Braxton. Hands down.

    When I originally conceived/plotted Edge of Darkness, Braxton wasn’t even a part of the story. I added her as a sounding board for Diana. It was just too boring to have her driving around alone. But as the character grew, I discovered that I really, really liked her. I wasn’t ready to be done with her when the book was completed.

    The questions you have about the holes in her story line are there on purpose. At some point, I’d like to write her story. In order to do that, I had to have the premise set up.

    Jean, thanks much for reading. I appreciate it.


  3. Hey Jove, great to hear you’ll be writing again soon. Any ideas what we can expect to see?

    • Gill! It’s great to be writing again. I’m working on a couple of different projects, one short and one full length novel. The novel is tentatively titled Love & Devotion. I’ll keep y’all updated as I progress.
