Romance and Russia! Meet Jennifer Comeaux

Today it’s great to have Jennifer Comeaux here as part of her Edge of the Past blog tour. First, Jennifer what is your latest book about?

Edge of the Past is about a couple who thinks they’ve finally gotten past all the tough obstacles in their way, but now they’re bombarded with a new set of challenges that are tougher than any they’ve ever faced.

I believe some of the story takes place in Russia. Why did you decide to set it there?

One of the main characters in the story, Sergei, is from Moscow, and I wanted to explore his complicated past there. I thought it would be great to have Sergei and Emily travel to Russia and come face-to-face with the ghosts of Sergei’s past.

It is listed as being Book 2, can we expect more books in the series? 

Yes! I’m currently working on the third and final book in the series. It will continue Emily and Sergei’s journey and also tell Emily’s best friend Aubrey’s story as they all prepare for the 2006 Olympics.

What inspired you to write the first book in the series, Life on The Edge? 

I’m a huge figure skating fan, and I had the idea for a romance between a skater and a coach in my head for many years. I told a friend about it, and she insisted I start writing it so she could read it. I hadn’t written fiction since I was a kid, so I was pretty rusty at first!

If your books were made into a film, who would you cast in the lead roles? 

For Emily I would cast Kimberly Matula, who plays Hope on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. She fits the physical description perfectly, and her character on the soap has similar values to Emily, so I could definitely picture her in the role. For Sergei I’d cast Josh Dallas, who plays Prince Charming on Once Upon a Time. He has all of Sergei’s physical attributes and is totally swoon-worthy!

What are you currently reading? 

I’m currently reading The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski Andam loving it! 

What do you like to do in your free time when you're not reading and writing?

I love traveling, especially to figure skating competitions. Closer to home, I attend most of my alma mater Tulane’s football and baseball games, and I have a TV addiction to Once Upon a Time, Chicago Fire, Pretty Little Liars, The New Normal, and Big Bang Theory.
