Darklight On...Jenny Schwartz: Djinn Whisperer
I write a paranormal romance series for Carina Press. It features angels and sexy djinn, mixing the romantic traditions of Arabia with modern day tensions--and in the second novella, Angel Thief, adding an Australian setting.
I adore storytelling, whether on television, in a book or by a five year old explaining the forbidden chocolate on her fingers. People have an amazing gift for sharing the wonder of life and their experiences through stories.
When Eleni invited me to write this introductory post I thought I'd share my fascination with Australia's unique cryptozoology -- yowies, bunyips, Queensland tigers. The rest of the world has no idea what's lurking in our countryside, waiting to burst onto the paranormal scene. However, I decided it would give people the wrong idea of my personality if my introduction included a chat about bunyips. I'm shy rather than scary and you'll never find me chewing on a stranger's leg at midnight -- no innuendo intended ;)
