Jennifer Fromke was born and raised in Michigan, attended Wheaton College in IL, and lived her first married years in Minneapolis, MN. She writes from North Carolina these days where she pines away for cooler temps amidst a sea of people drinking sweet tea. Her biggest fans are her husband of 20 years and her three children, who keep her life filled with brilliant colors and big dreams. They eagerly await their annual trip to northern Michigan and time together on their favorite lake.
My debut novel is entitled “A Familiar Shore.” The manuscript won the 2010 Genesis Award for Women’s Fiction given by American Christian Fiction Writers group. The back cover copy reads: Meg Marks is a young lawyer raised off the coast of the Carolinas. An anonymous client hires her to arrange his will, and sends her to meet his estranged family at their lake home in northern Michigan. After a shocking discovery, she finds herself caught between his suspicious family and a deathbed promise her conscience demands that she keep. Will she sacrifice her own dreams for revenge, or will she choose something more?
The largest portion of the book takes place in northern Michigan on Lake Charlevoix, but there are scenes at the coast of North Carolina, Charlotte, NC, Savannah, GA, at sea on the ocean and Key West, FL.
This novel was published traditionally through a smaller publisher and is available in print and digital formats.
I also self-pubbed a Christmas short story which is available in digital format only.
I’m currently at work on another novel which leans even more toward women’s fiction and I’m fighting back emerging ideas for further projects so I can finish this next one asap!
