A-Z Challenge Letter J. J is for Jenny.
My first name is Jennifer. But the people closest to me, always call me Jenny or Jay. Some of my friends call me Jen. It doesn't really matter which derivative people use, I answer to them all. But man can I tell you how much I hated how popular my name was growing up. When I was in kindergarten, there were EIGHT of us!! Since there were more than one Jennifer B's I was forced to be called Jennifer B2. I sounded like a robot! It irritated me to no end, but what could I do? I've made peace with it now, but when I had my own girls and was searching for baby names, I swore to choose names for my girls that were less popular. (Little did I know I would have to come up with 3 baby girl names!)
What are your favorite names? Do you have a nickname? Italians are big on them. Everybody gets one in my family and they stick. Whether you like it or not! How do you come up with your character names?

Now, really, about me: I bring the crazy wherever I go, so I've been told...I make fun of myself more than anyone else ever could. I hate: the awkward silence in elevators, watches with no numbers, picky eaters, Cancer and legalism. I love: coffee, stalking Hugh Jackman, my Spanx, COMMENTS, sarcasm and writing: Middle Grade, NA, YA Paranormal and Urban Fantasy.
