Jennifer Hartmann is a bestselling dark and contemporary romance author who resides in northern Illinois with her devoted husband and three hooligans. When she is not writing angsty love stories, she is likely thinking about writing them. She enjoys sunsets (because mornings are hard), bike riding, traveling, binging Buffy the Vampire Slayer reruns, and that time of day when coffee gets replaced by wine. Jennifer is a wedding photographer with her husband and a self-love enthusiast. She is excellent at making puns and finding inappropriate humor in mundane situations. She loves tacos. She also really, really wants to pet your dog. Xoxo.



TikTok's #hotboss goes #hotromancehero! I had the privilege of collaborating with Rhylan Streloff for the cover of my newest angsty romance novel, "The Wrong Heart", releasing 08.10.21. He nailed it!



I started writing Aria ten years ago. I daydreamed about this love story often, but never thought I'd ever finish it. When that day came, I cried. Then I never believed I would ever know the feeling of holding my book in my hands. When that day came, I cried some more and chugged a bottle of wine in my kitchen. Then, SURELY, I would never sell any copies. Well... I sold hundreds and hundreds of copies in the first two months strictly from word of mouth and rave reviews.

Needless to say, I'm still crying.

And chugging wine.

Never give up on yourself. That goal that looks impossible? It's not. It's just waiting for you to make your move.


"Love is in the details — the small but mighty fragments."
