I popped in the office the other day (I only live about 20 minutes from where Gail and Jen work) and Jen had her QUASAR with her. I must admit, it was very impressive. *smiles*

Jen is very kind. Her passion, dedication, and commitment to her work are just some of the qualities I admire about her. She is relentless in finding the right graphic(s) for covers. Not only that, for those who know her, Jen has an amazing sense of humour. I had an opportunity to spend NaNoMoWri Month with her last November, and I really enjoyed our mornings where we sat down and worked on our projects. She's a very motivated and motivating person.

While at the office, Jen and Gail wanted to take a couple pictures with her QUASAR to show to everyone. With an IPhone at hand, we snapped away. For those who don't know - Jen is a biggie techie.

Jen and Gail are very excited about Romantic Times (RT) Convention this year. They've got some really cool things planned for Desert Breeze and I'm thrilled to be onboard.
