First up–Jasmine Haynes!

Thanks for stopping by the kickoff of our fabulous and sexy new blog! And these ladies and gents are a wonderful bunch! I’m glad to be here with them. You can check out our individual pages and learn more about us there.

But more about ME! I’m Jasmine Haynes and I write erotic romance, kinky but classy! But a writer doesn’t like to write only one type of book, so I’ve also got my Max Starr paranormal series: psychics, ghosts, murder, mayhem, and a very hunky cop. I also write under a completely different name, Jennifer Skully. This one my mom can read! She’s my humorous side, with laugh-out-loud, quirky, sexy mysteries. Okay, here’s a quirk, the first Jennifer Skully book was called Sex and the Serial Killer. See what I mean? I’ve since reissued it and changed the title to She’s Gotta Be Mine. But you can tell I have a quirky mind. I’ve written for HQN, Berkley, Loose-Id, and LiquidSilver, and I’ve got over 30 sexy romances behind me and more to come!

My latest series is West Coast Hotwifing, starting with Revenge Sex and Submitting to the Boss. Hotwifing is about multiple partners, but only for the wife. The husband doesn’t get extra partners. And really, isn’t that the way it should be, ladies! It’s all about us and our pleasure! The men in my stories love sharing their woman, they get off on it, participate in it, even help find new partners for their wives. But really, it’s not all sex, sex, sex. The stories are also about what can go wrong, how it affects the relationship, brings the couple together, tears them apart. Lots of heartrending emotion. At heart, these are romances, even if they are really kinky. You can go to my page by clicking on my name at the top of the blog and learn more about my books from there. Or you can go straight to my site, www.jasminehaynes.com and my blog, www.jasminehaynes.blogspot.com.

I also love writing paranormal. I’ve always wanted to write about reincarnation ever since I read The Reincarnation of Peter Proud years ago. I’ve even done regression hypnosis, and yes, I went back to two past lives! Unfortunately I wasn’t Cleopatra or Queen Elizabeth or Da Vinci, or anyone important at all. And I died young both times, once by snake bite, once by starvation on a wagon train. I think the snake-bite life was after the life on the wagon train, and no, I wasn’t part of the Donner Party (thank God!). So anyway, I’ve got a fascination for reincarnation. And I’m currently working on the first in my Reincarnation series. I hope to have that out by late summer.

On a personal note, I have a wonderful husband, no kids, and one cat. I live in the mountains, I do my 10,000 steps per day, I love to bake, and I do needlepoint. Yes, I write hot sex and do needlepoint, kind of two ends of the spectrum! The TV show Dexter is my secret vice (and I’m always working my needlepoint while I’m watching). I was born in Canada, my parents are British, and my mother still has her cute English accent. She’s a very proper British lady and is horrified at the naughty stuff I write! Poor Mom!
Photobucket
Just for fun, I’ve added a photo of my dinosaur garden! I’m probably a bit blood thirsty, too, because I have all the predators getting ready to pounce on the vegetarians. Yes, now you officially know I’m a freak, but I do love my dinosaurs.

Don’t forget, leave a comment for your chance to win one of fourteen books being given away by our authors. If your name is chosen, you’ll get your choice of an ebook from one author’s book list. Every comment you leave from now through midnight, PST, June 2 is another entry into the contest, so please come back again. Thank you!

    I really like the dinosaur garden. Now, the carnivores on herbivores vibe is a nice trick … but only a dinosaur specialist or an eight-year-old will spot it!

    Great blog. Bye now.

    Okay, I have to type all that again, Internet crapped out and lost my comment. Can I even remember what I said?! I’m so glad all of you enjoyed my post and my dino garden! Greta, thank you so much for supplying the correct word, herbivores. I did know that, honestly! I’ve got a teacher in my neighborhood and he did note that I had some of my herbivores masquerading as carnivores, but I didn’t change them! and Jackie, we must be clones. My cat, CT, is sitting in my lap as I type, rubbing her face on my fingers. Hah, maybe that’s why I love the comment the first time around! Now, I’m off for my 3.5 mile morning walk!

    I love that you are quirky person! It akes me feel so much better knowing that I am not the only one. And on the writing and needlepoint issue, I am right there with you, I love working my cross-stitch (i know there is a slight difference between the two, just not sure what it is, lol) I have completed many personalized baby blankets and am currently working on a looney tunes sweetshirt for my sister. Like you I enjoy working while wath a favorite show, or sometimes when my husband is watching somehting I work on it and let my ind go over things i might want to put into the book that i am writing (non-published as of yet, first book i ever tried to write) I would love to see pictures of your work sometime, and I love your dinasour garden! very creative!

      Thanks for stopping by, Lisa. And another person doing needlework! I believe the difference between cross-stitch and needlepoint is that the stitches are cross-over and you have to count them to make it correct, where as needlepoint is the same back and forth stitch on the canvas. You can see an example of my largest work on my website. It’s a Cluny tapestry which is about 4 feet by 6 feet and took me two years to complete. http://www.skullybuzz.com/newsite/biography.html And wonderful on your work on that first book! Good luck!

    Jasmine, thanks for sharing your life with us. How cute that you have a prehistoric garden to look at. I’m hoping you’ll post more in the future about your reincarnation fascination. It’s very interesting for me, as well, having had a strange past-life experience. *play theme from the Twighlight Zone* Good to get to know you!

        I will most definitely try it some day! I loved reading the bit about your past two lives. I’m totally convinced that in my most recent past life I was a young woman who lived in England in the late 1890s and that I drowned in a river (and this would explain my obsession with Art Noveau and the recurring nightmare of drowning that I’ve had since childhood). My husband thinks I’m nuts. LOL. 😀

  17. Thanks for sharing your life and books with us, past and present! Pun totes intended, although I find the past-life trekking business a wee bit scary. Granted, things have happened I can’t explain but my scientific side says it’s just because I haven’t found an explanation and that science doesn’t have all the answers anyway. The rest of me…just doesn’t know.

    Murder, mayhem, ménages and mystery…you have written everything! Thanks a lot. *groan* My TBR list is seven miles long as it is… So help me out, or anyone else thinking where to start. What says Jasmine Haynes or Jennifer Skully more than anything? Which books are you most fond and proud of, if you can choose, the books readers can’t stop raving or writing to you about? Enquiring minds want to know!

      LOL, yes, the past-life thing can be a bit scary, and who really knows! But I think it’s great fodder for romances, with the whole love across century thing. Thank you so much for the question about my favorite books, Dita! I’d have to say the books of my heart are the Max Starr books by Jasmine Haynes. The series just seemed to write itself, like I was channeling the characters. As for Jennifer Skully, my favorite is Fool’s Gold, because it’s actually set in my brother-in-law’s town out in Nevada. It is the second in the series, though.

    You are one of my favorite author’s. I’ve read your Jennifer Skully books and Fool’s Gold is my favorite. The Fortune Hunter is listed in my “GREAT READS” and I have 2 copies, none of them signed though (wink);-). I’ve purchased a couple more to give to friends, that’s how much I loved this story!!!. I think a reincarnation story would be interesting. I don’t believe I’ve read anything written with the theme. A long time ago I had a reading done…it was done by a Catholic priest if you can believe that… He told me I had been mostly men in my previous lives and there were two lives that I remember him telling me about. One was that I was a Roman soldier during the times of Jesus’ crucifixion, just a grunt though… Also I was supposedly a sympathizer during the Spanish Inquisition and was buried alive (gulp) and that’s why I to this day hate enclosed spaces…LOL. Just a couple of thought to ponder about reincarnation…1. Souls keep coming back in order to learn life lessons. Only when they have learned all they need to do they stay in the afterlife. 2. Déjà vu feelings can be explained by maybe doing the same things in a previous life. Our circle of family and friends follow us throughout our lives. 3. Scientifically we are energy and therefore do not dissipate but only change places. Also I read somewhere that reincarnation and déjà vu can be explained by cells retaining memories. Since genetically we pass on our cells to the next generation why can’t our ‘memories’ pass on too. Just a couple of thoughts…probably too many but it is an interesting topic… I look forward to your new series…

      Thank you so much, Adriana. I’m so glad you loved Fool’s Gold and The Fortune Hunter. I have book plates I can sign and send to you. You can email me through my website on the “contact” page, http://www.jasminehaynes.com, if you are interested in that.

      And I love all the stuff you mention about reincarnation. I’ve read several books on the prevailing theories, and I will be using all that in the books. I find it all very interesting. And I love that the priest did your past life reading. And you turned out to be a soldier in the time of Christ! I hope you’ll come back to the blog because I’ll be blogging more about it all! Thanks for the input!
