About Jena’s Writing

Most of the stories I write are contemporary romances, splattered with conflict before the hero and heroine resolve their differences and realize and confess their love.

The characters are ordinary, everyday people, living normal lives and facing problems that any single person might face in today’s world.

There are stories where the hero antagonizes the heroine and she finds herself battling against the odds, trying to prove her worth and the strength of her convictions.

Sometimes the characters have met earlier in their lives. Now they’ve changed, their circumstances are different and they find love where it never was before.

Some stories involve kids, helping or hindering the budding romance.

The conflict and the way the characters react will keep you guessing until near the end of the story, wondering how these two will ever resolve their differences.

Stories of heart-warming relationships & unexpected love,
set in the wild beauty of New Zealand landscapes

Current Work in Progress

My current work in progress is a contemporary romance partly set in the Southern Alps region of New Zealand. Some of the key scenes see the main characters of the story, Bailey and Connor, visiting the Hotel at Mt Cook Village.

Fellow Writers

A writer’s work is never without its inspirations, and in my case I owe thanks, in part, to the community of people who provide guidance, workshops, and support through the Romance Writers of New Zealand organisation.
