The Edge of Springwood Series
by Jennifer Brown

Twisted Revenge
The Edge of Springwood #1


The Barnes family has seen tragedy, but nothing can prepare them for what they are about to face.

Tragedy forced Jacob Barnes to step in at the age of 22, and raise his younger brother and sister. Years later, as the Barnes family is finally on the verge of recovery the past comes back to haunt them.

It's election time in Springwood, and Jacob is a candidate for Mayor. Having proved himself as a successful business man, Jacob feels he is ready to take on Springwood and tackle the city's many issues. Little does he know the extent of the issues he is about to face.

When it becomes apparent someone is out to sabotage Jacob's campaign, Jacob begins to realize the past is far from behind him and his family. Two murders reveal dark secrets in the Barnes family, as they come to terms with a harsh reality.



Burned by Deceit
The Edge of Springwood #2


Christmas has arrived in Springwood...and so has a killer, bent on revenge.

The Barnes family is still reeling from recent events, as they try to spend a normal holiday together, but fate has different plans for them.

As the holiday season kicks off, Mayor Jacob Barnes is in the middle of planning the annual Christmas Festival, while his brother Justin, and sister Jocelyn prepare to spend the holiday with their love interests—until one of them is found dead.

As Jocelyn's trial looms closer she struggles with haunting memories of a questionable past, and worries of an uncertain future. Matters get more complicated when a mysterious stranger enters the scene with a special interest in Jocelyn.

As New Year’s Eve arrives, everyone prepares to ring in the new year, no one having any clue exactly what it may bring, except for one person who has a plan to make sure those who crossed him get burned.



Dark Connections
The Edge of Springwood, #3


Everyone has secrets...some are just darker than others.

Dr. Brent Parker is well known for his success rate with patients, and once he gets wind of Jocelyn Barnes's story he extends an invitation to her to appear on his reality show, Dr. Brent. As the Barnes prepare for their lives to be even more publicized with the arrival of the Dr. Brentcrew, jury selection begins in Jocelyn's trial.

When a dead body found in Mercy Park draws a visit from the Barnes' long estranged Aunt Liz, and their cousin Danielle, matters get complicated. As Jocelyn welcomes reconnecting with her cousin, other memories resurface that lead to devastating results.

As dark secrets are revealed, twisted links to the past arise and taunt the Barnes family as they deal with yet another deadly reality.



What is your writing routine?

I actually have a writing board where I make notes and make out a schedule. On a day I have planned to write, I normally get up and get started first thing in the morning. I try to write on average about two to three days a week, sometimes more if I am lucky.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

I love reading of course, and getting out and enjoying myself and the summer months. I've been heading to the beach, different parks, and hitting the pool. I also enjoy spending time with my other half Bruce, our cat Annie, and hanging out with my best friend Matt.

Do you have any other books besides this series?

The Edge of Springwood is my first series of novels. I self published a novella years and years ago, and a few after that but nothing that compares to my current series.

What is your favorite book you've written?

I have truly enjoyed writing each book in The Edge of Springwood series. Really hard to nail a favorite, each one of them have just been such an awesome experience.

What/who is your favorite author or book?

I have enjoyed every Linwood Barclay book since 2007's No Time For Goodbye, also my favorite book from him. I also love Andrew Gross, both are amazing thriller and suspense writers.

What else are you working on?

A few side projects, the fifth book of The Edge of Springwood, as well as a potential spin off of the series, and another very interesting project titled Terror Under Cover, which involves an abandoned mall, rumored hidden money, and a long time missing girl.

Do you have a favorite scene in your books?

Of course, there are so many! In Twisted Revenge, where Jacob Barnes's sister is held captive on his hacked campaign site, in Burned by Deceit where Becky Robinson is held captive in a bookstore on fire, and in Dark Connections after the Barnes have to say goodbye to a family member. You just never know where these characters are going to take you next. I just hope readers are as blown away by the twists as I have been writing them.

Where do you see your writing career in 5 years?

Well, like any writer I dream of book signings and more readers coming my way. It's hard to say what you see. I know what I want and it's to keep writing and hopefully keep publishing.

Anything else you would like to share?

My website is always open to stop by and visit and subscribe to my newsletter. You can also follow me on all social media there as well, except for my author page which I have just started and is still under construction! But check out the links which will keep you up to date on everything!


I write contemporary erotic romance, with humour, which are full of emotion and plenty of drama. I am a 44-year-old female from the United Kingdom and live in the wonderful countryside of Wales, surrounded by rolling hills, trees, and fields full of sheep and cows. Writing aids include chocolate, Ben & Jerry’s and copious amounts of coffee, wine, or cider.

Jennifer Brown lives in Springfield Ohio, and has written since third grade. She was taught to read at an early age and fell in love with books, mainly mysteries. Her love of books grew, and in the summer before she started high school she wrote her longest story, halfway filling an old school notebook. In high school she started to enter writing contests, and in her junior and senior years joined the Herald staff becoming entertainment editor over her high school newspaper.

After graduating, with a few writing contest awards under her belt she attended college a year later, and was urged by her English instructor to join the college paper. She did, writing a few reviews of restaraunts and movies, as well as writing a review of her first Alanis Morissette concert. A few years later she was asked to take the position of entertainment editor.

At 38, Jennifer has written several stories and has many more in store for readers. When she is not writing she likes reading, working on computer graphics, editing photos, listening to music, and brainstorming for new ideas!
