Thanks for stopping by to talk a little about your writing! Let's jump right in. When did you begin writing and why?
On my nightstand right now is…
A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones
A Hundred Lies by Jean M. Grant
Colt Stone: is a Seattle warrior football tight end, recently traded from Texas. He’s the descendant of Ares, god of violent war. He comes to Seattle ready to make some changes in his life.
Lilly Stone: is a pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon from Seattle. She’s a widow with two kids. She’s the descendant of Hera, goddess of marriage and childbirth. She’s had a hard time moving on from the death of her husband four years prior.
Dee Taylor: returns as the quirky grandmother everyone knows and loves. The prophecy came to her first in The Sea Archer, book one. She’s the descendant of Demeter, goddess of agriculture.
Raven Hunter: is a singer-celebrity and returns as a “first quester” from The Sea Archer. She is the descendant of Apollo, god of music. It’s her job to convince Lilly she is part of this new world.
I’m finishing a side novella entitled, Dee’s Cornucopia. I’m working on an off-genre political thriller and I am fleshing out a YA series. Next year I will have out book three of the Heaven & Earth series. So, stay tuned.
Thank you for spending some time with me today. I really hope you like The Warrior’s Progeny. And thank you Dawn for hosting me today, I’m really honored to be here.
Colton Stone is a newly traded tight end whose reputation is as battered as his football helmet. When he receives a vacation invitation from his new teammates, he accepts. There he collides with Dr. Lillian Morgan, a pediatric cardiovascular surgeon, and doesn't know what to think.
A widow with two children, Lilly travels to Kauai to attend the wedding of a friend and witness the union she lost three years prior. When she meets Colt, she struggles between letting go of her perfect past for an uncertain future.
Strange events begin to occur, out of the realm of normal consciousness. Black energy touches their world and the couple become pawns of the immortal Greek gods. Is the love between them real, or part of a larger prophecy?
Colt’s body temperature heated until his helmet, now that of a Trojan, melted and became part of his skull. Painful, thick, fire plumes ignited from the sides of his head and curved toward the sky, until they solidified in a solid line down the middle of the helmet. Black snake-like smoke wafted up from the earth and encircled his ankles and wrists, locking him into place.
The smoke turned into bindings and massaged tentacles over his chest and phallus.
He looked over at Lilly, who now knelt helpless as her skin became dusky, then turned a brilliant shade of blue. However, the color became an iridescent hue that reminded him of something just outside the confines of his mind. Her skin bubbled, separated, and formed into thousands of compact hairs. Small points protruded from her shoulders and down her arms until they freed themselves from the surface of her skin, as she screamed. Several long, hollow shoots grew, lengthening into the elegant, arching rods, as more buds sprouted from them and turned into thready feathers. As the feathers lengthened, green and blue eyes opened in intervals. At a screech of transformation, Lilly turned into a peacock, whose tail plumed out in a perfect fan. A feathered diadem lifted from her skull and the beautiful eyes all blinked at him. He wanted to mate with her, devour her, possess her, and bellowed out an unearthly warrior battle cry. Breaking his bonds, he charged at her.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Award-winning author, Jeny Heckman, was born in Bellingham, Washington, and was the youngest of two daughters. She met her husband, Jeff, in August 1992, and eloped three months later, at Magen’s Bay, on St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.
She wrote her first book, the Catch, in a few short months but took several years before she gained the courage to self-publish it at her son’s urging, and her love for writing began.
In 2018, Jeny knew her next project would be a series that showed adults could have adventures in the paranormal-fantasy genre too. So, she created the Heaven & Earth series, a story of doomed Greek gods and their only salvation, their modern-day descendants. Her first book of the series, the Sea Archer, was immediately picked up by the New York publishing house, the Wild Rose Press, and won, “Best in Category” from the 2018 Chanticleer International Book Awards.
In the year 2020, Jeny released, Dancing Through Tears, a short story from the anthology, Australia Burns: Volume Two, highlighting the Route 91 massacre from the perspective of one family at the concert, and at Mandalay Bay. She also intends to release, the Warrior’s Progeny, and Dee’s Cornucopia, in 2020, continuing the Heaven & Earth Series.
Jeny lives in Washington State with her husband of over twenty-eight years.
