Hi, I’m Jennifer Trethewey and I write about men in kilts because, hey, what’s not to love about a man in a kilt? I was lucky enough to travel to Scotland twice. I’m planning a third trip this year. I have fallen in love with the Highlands and all things Scottish: the people, their language, cuisine, customs, idioms, humor, history, intense sense of pride, and, most of all, the land—the perfect setting for sweeping romantic tales of love, strife, and glory. As they say, Scotland is pure dead brilliant!
As for more personal stuff, I’m an actress, former co-artistic director of a professional theater company, and my husband and I operate an improv comedy club. I live with my comedian husband in the Midwest where I’ve been ever since college.
I write both contemporary and historical fiction full time. I like to read romance, mystery, fantasy, and paranormal, as well as literary fiction and non-fiction. As you can imagine, I’m a big fan of Outlander and Herself. I adore traveling to new places (but I hate flying). I love movies and music and dogs and good wine and I love to enjoy them all with my friends.
There are many folks I want to acknowledge for their help and support (I will add your name to this list for a chocolate bar and a pencil with an eraser): Kim Suhr, Robert Vaughan, and the members of Red Oak Writing Studio, the members of Wisconsin Romance Writers, Dave Rank of the Novel-In-Progress-Bookcamp & Retreat, Lisa Lickel, Phil Martin, S.J. Rosen, publicist Krista Soukup at Blue Cottage Agency, my editor Erin Molta at Entangled Publishing, and my agent Cassie Hanjian at Waxman Leavell Literary Agency. My unending love and thanks go to my husband Richard (my Beta reader), and my son Nick (my best creation).
