About

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Adventure Awaits You!

Little about me:

I am an author who grew up in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I’m now adjusting to living in the evergreen state of Washington with my husband, Nathan.

Bit of background:

I received my bachelors in English in 2008 from what is now Western State Colorado University. I loved the college experience but since I got my degree in literature instead of creative writing, I’m still working on the voice in writing thing. (It’s a lifelong work in progress, I guess).

However, writing’s been a passion of mine long before I went to college. Check out My Why. So everything that helps me hone the craft is awesome, in my book.

In other background news, in 2010 I married my wonderful husband, Nathan. The kids include one Shepard/Husky mix, and two small, purring fur-balls of unknown breed. One’s kinda bengal/mutt and the other…um, well, even the vet doesn’t have a good guess.

This blog:

I’m terrified of sharing my writing! This blog is my attempt to conquer that fear because, one day, I dream of being published. 

Update since 2012- I’m still terrified of sharing my writing, but I’ve a few publications now, so at least I’m facing that fear. In October 2013, I teamed up with several other writers to self publish a collection of horror/dark fantasy stories titled Midnight Abyss. What an awesome experience. I’ve also gotten some short stories published in ezines. Making small steps.

Anyway, I love the Choose Your Own Adventure books. So, this blog is styled after those books. Each week entails a new adventure that readers get to chime in on. Because this entertains my love of storytelling, (again, check out My Why page), and gets readers involved, I can ignore the fact I’m sharing my writing and just have fun with it.

So, join in the adventure but be careful, there be dragons beyond the edges. And what you find depends on your choices!

Enjoy and Blessings,

Jennifer M. Zeiger

(Feb. 2015: Submitting my first novel Escaping Shadows and working on my second novel, Dryad. Update Sept. 2016: Escaping Shadows gained no traction, so while I love the story, I’ve let it go for now. Dryad, on the other hand, is ready for submission. Fingers crossed, it’s on its way to agents.)

(Update May 15, 2017- Still submitting Dryad to agents and in the mean time, I’m working on Self Publishing The Adventure. Check out the progress =))

    hey how’s it going,just read your blog and what an awesome concept – choose your own adventures! Great great idea, good practice for you and fun for your readers. Keep it up! And best of luck with your novels.. blogging at http://emilymorganwrites.com 😉

    • Thanks for reading=) You’re right, it is great practice although it’s more work than I originally thought it would be. But the practice of running through different endings has helped my thought process while writing soooo much. It’s a great way to work out ideas for a story.Thank you again for reading. I’ll have to stop by and check out your writing=)

    “And, but, or, nor, for, yet…these are the coordinating conjunctions. Wither either, neither nor, and, but, or or, the verb agrees with the nearer subject…”

    Oh my, I remember the “bonehead” grammar classes of many years ago! But, (subordinating conjunction), I did manage to get published.

    I share your fear of exposing my prose, and a poet I am not. However, we write anyway because it is a “superbug.” It, (faulty pronoun reference) has no cure and can’t be satisfied.

    Enjoyed sharing this “share” with you…continued success!

  9. I found you on Writer Unboxed.

  10. Would it be ok if I call you Jen- Jen? Since you are so terrified of sharing your writing, I will make sure to express my excitement when I’m in awe of your talent.
    I love the FRICKIN title of your Novel. Is it Fantasy or realistic fiction?
