Let's Welcome Author Jennifer Jabaley!
I love this time of year - the crisp mornings and evenings, the vibrant colors painting the leaves and stacks of pumpkins decorating front porches. Looking at the painted pumpkins arranged on my kitchen table reminds me of one of my favorite scenes in LIPSTICK APOLOGY - the Halloween party where the stack of illuminated jack-o-lanterns explodes.
It's funny how many times readers have asked me if that really happened to me. The answer is no, this was a creation of my imagination. I loved the idea of a pyramid of pumpkins - it's so visual and festive - and the idea of candle light sparkling from a pumpkin creates a unique romantic ambiance for a roof top party. But of course when I'm creating scenes in my mind and I want to create drama, I always ask myself what's the worst thing that could happen? And somehow I envisioned this beautiful arrangement of pumpkins exploding everywhere, sticky orange pulp flying and flames of fire erupting. What a way to interrupt a kiss, right?
I think a lot of people assume that authors write scenes from their life, and maybe some do, but maybe my life is just a little dull :) Thank goodness I have an over active imagination.
Thanks for letting me ramble on your blog!
