Please welcome best-selling author Jennifer Probst to the virtual offices today! This is a return visit for Jennifer, and I’m so excited to host her again. The Marriage Bargain is one of the first Entangled books that I reviewed, and Jennifer is one of their first authors that I interviewed!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Welcome back, Jennifer! If you had a theme song, what would it be?
[Jennifer Probst] Well, before I got married it was “Another One Bites the Dust.” Now it’s more a motto from Finding Nemo – “Just Keep Swimming.”
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about All The Way?
[Jennifer Probst] Absolutely! It’s a love story of revenge and redemption between a restaurant owner and a food critic. My hero walked away from everything he loved and broke my heroine’s heart. Now he’s back to right his wrongs, but it’s a hard journey back into her bed and heart. It’s filled with lots of sexual tension, humor, food, music, and fun!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?
[Jennifer Probst] I’ve always wanted to write about a food critic and the restaurant world, and I loved the idea of a story centering around a man who made mistakes when he was young and the path back to make things right.
I actually wrote this story a decade ago so I’m thrilled to finally share it with readers!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?
[Jennifer Probst] JR Ward’s The Black Daggerhood series – I’ve read three in a row and can’t stop!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How has your life changed since The Marriage Bargain was released last year?
[Jennifer Probst] Like the glass slipper fit. I’m completely grateful and humbled to be able to write full time now, and dedicate myself to sharing my stories with readers. I have an agent, a few fantastic publishers I adore, and the ability to work from home so I can be with my kids. Doesn’t get better than that!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
[Jennifer Probst] I love my family. I adore getting together with everyone over a great dinner, seeing my nieces, taking vacations, just enjoying time together. I love reading, dogs, food, wine, and hanging with my friends.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?
