The Daily Writer with Kent Sanders

Hello, listeners of the Smart Business Writing podcast! Thanks so much for listening, and feel free to contact me with any questions or comments!

Dec 7, 2022

I recently attended the amazing WriterFest conference in Nashville. I met some amazing people there, including the renowned romance author Jenny Hale! (Many thanks to Honorée Corder for the introduction.)

Jenny Hale is a USA Today, Amazon, and international bestselling author of romantic contemporary fiction. Her books have sold worldwide, have been translated into multiple languages, and adapted for television.

Her novels Coming Home for Christmas and Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses are Hallmark Channel original movies. She was included in Oprah Magazine’s “19 Dreamy Summer Romances to Whisk You Away” and both Southern Living’s “30 Christmas Novels to Start Reading Now,” as well as “Beach Reads Perfect for Summer 2020.”

Her stories are chock-full of feel-good romance and overflowing with warm settings, great friends, and family. When she isn’t writing or heading up her romantic fiction imprint Harpeth Road, she can be found running around her hometown of Nashville with her husband, two boys, and their labradoodle, taking pictures, which is her favorite pastime.

This was such a fun conversation where Jenny shares insights about story structure, how to begin writing fiction, her daily writing habit, why she started her own publishing company, and much more.
