Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Jenna Sinclair. I'm from San Francisco, California. Along with my cousin, Dylan, I run the Sinclair Foundation, which was founded by my parents. Since they are constantly travelling around the world, donating their time and money to different charitable causes, I've stepped in to see that things run smoothly at home. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, as I am also involved in charitable work around the city. I have a quick temper, which can get me into trouble, but I am also quick to forgive.
What is your role in the story?
I was married for a short time, but had the marriage annulled when I found out my husband was a scam artist. That has made me question everything and everyone around me. When I meet Cormac on the Marina Green, I am sure that he is pulling a prank on me with the help of my cousin. I'm definitely not happy about it and I let them know I will not be playing along. But there's something about Cormac that is undeniably attractive to me and I have to find a way to let myself trust him.
What is your favorite hobby?
I love to entertain and spend time with my friends. I'd say cooking is my favorite hobby. I'm pretty good at it and I love nothing more than to hear someone say, "That was delicious!"
What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?
I have to learn to trust again and I have to learn to stop being my own worst enemy. 'Think before you act,' should be my motto. I am forever putting my foot in my mouth and then having to apologize later. The worst part is that it hurts the people I love, but I can't seem to stop myself. Luckily I know some pretty patient people.
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
I'd wish for more than one wish! Seriously, though, I'd wish to spend my life with the people I love, appreciating the time we have together and never taking anything for granted.
Title: A Thistle Beyond Time
Author: Jennae Vale
Genre: Time Travel Romance
Cormac MacBayne wants a wife and the witch, Edna Campbell, has the perfect woman in mind. The only problem is they’re separated by five hundred years and thousands of miles.
Fresh from a bad marriage, Jenna Sinclair has sworn off men – that is until a handsome highlander comes out of the fog and into her life. He’s a mystery and possibly part of an elaborate practical joke concocted by her cousin. Jenna’s had enough deception in her life. Can she risk everything to be with a man who is so obviously lying to her?
Jennae was born and raised a New England girl, just outside of Boston, Massachusetts, where her imagination was always bigger than she was. Her large, extended Irish and Italian families were a great source of support, inspiration and humor. Laughter, love and food were never hard to find in her home. Growing up surrounded by nostalgic, historical landmarks, fed her love of history and creative writing.
She has worn many hats over the years. From owning her own typing service and horse training/boarding facility, to operating an embroidery/t-shirt business, her entrepreneurial spirit was strong and thriving. Determined to do something she truly loved, her vivid imagination took over again and she decided to follow her literary dream of writing stories that tapped into her love of magnificent people and places.
Jennae now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, where they’ve raised two beautiful and talented children. Along the way they’ve gathered a menagerie of pets, including one dog, three cats and 4 chickens to make the family complete.
