Hellish Nightmare... If seventeen-year-old Seth Bradson were to describe his life in two words, those would be the two he’d choose. Seth prefers to cope with his crappy existence by spending his days in a drug-induced haze. But when Ali Carson steps into his life, Seth finds something he’s subconsciously been seeking—a new drug, one that consumes his mind unlike any other. Love. In a moment of unforgivable weakness, Seth allows Ali to try crystal meth, his most addictive temptation. This single event begins the unraveling of both their lives and forces Seth to learn the definition of regret the hard way.

And now, let's hear from Jennifer.
1. Tell me about your novel.
Shattered Soul is an Edgy YA novel which deals with the serious issue of teen addiction.
2. How long have you been writing?
Honestly, I'm one of those writers whom have wrote since they were a small child--silly short stories and funky poems mostly. I've even kept a journal since I was about fourteen. As far as my novel writing goes, though, close to four years now.
3. What do you hope people take away from your stories?
With Shattered Soul I really hope people take with them both sides of the coin when it comes to addiction. How for some it can truly be all they know. Sadly, some kids are raised around this sort of lifestyle making it easily assessable and normal even. And for others, how it's just one bad choice that changes them forever. Addiction can be a serious problem, for some it can grab a hold and never let go.
4. What are you working on now?
I'm actually working on a YA Paranormal Romance novel that has been blossoming in the depths of my mind for a while.
5. What's your favorite novel? It's a tie between Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause and Interview With A Vampire by Anne Rice!
