Why Jeni? Ask the Author Wednesday (a day late)

The name Jeni was inspired by a coworker I shared a cubicle with back in my corporate days. Her name was Janelle but she went by Jenny. She was the first person I’d ever met named Janelle and I thought it was interesting that she used Jenny as a nickname. So when I sat down to write my first novel ever (not Thunderstone) I decided my main character would be named Jenelle and go by Jeni. I had to scrap that first story and chalk it up as a learning experience, but I liked Jeni and felt she deserved another adventure so I wrote her into Thunderstone.
