Jenny Sulpizio

jenny sulpizio headshotI love having Agency siblings on my blog! Super hello and welcome to Jenny Sulpizio!
1. If you could save the literary life of one character from any book, who would it be and why?

This is going to sound totally lame here but it would have to be Old Yeller…or the poor doggies from Where the Red Fern Grows. Those books and those sweet pups stayed with me forever and to this day, I had wished that the story would have ended much different. LOL

2. Is it hard to be taken seriously as a Christian author in today’s world?
I think at times we can be deemed as too serious. What I personally consider to be the hardest thing about the Christian market is having humor in one’s writing. You certainly don’t want to offend or have something you’ve said taken the wrong way.
3. Would you please describe your writing area?
A pit. I have scribbled notes, old receipts, wrappers, my children’s birthday card to me, my son’s trains, and my tax documents all staring me in the face at the current moment. I need to clean!
4. Do you work with an outline or just write?
I do both. I love to free write and get all of my ideas out of my head and into the computer. As I’m finding with my latest proposal though, I definitely need to follow an outline or my free writes become some serious chaos when editing takes place.
5. What project are you working on now?
I am writing another Women’s Christian, Non-fiction piece. I’d give you all of the details but I’m still working them out in my head! ๐Ÿ™‚
6. Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?
Just. Keep. Swimming…or writing in this case. Do what you love and love what you do. Ignore the nay-sayers and don’t be afraid to enter the publishing realm…otherwise, you may just miss out on the biggest opportunity of your life.
7. What is your favorite meal?
Gosh, I love food way too much for my own good but my fave meal (time and time again), has to be the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, complete with turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes, cranberries, and topped off with one, mean slice of cheesecake for dessert.
8. What do you do when you’re not writing?
I go insane from trying to keep my brood in line. Other than that, I love to do DIY projects on my home, decorate, scrapbook, and engage my left brain as much as possible. Oh, and I loooove to hang out on Pinterest too.

I’m not a “Christian” writer, but on the inspy side for sure, and for YA, so that fear is always there. But on the same note, I want to keep it real. Good to come across you today on Marisa’s blog! Best of luck to you. I’m following you everywhere now:-)

  3. *looks around* Yeah, I’m suspicious of any writer who has a neat ‘area.’ ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. My desk is a disaster. Looks like I’m in good company. Great interview.
