Sunday Brunch with Carmen Jenner + Giveaway

by Carmen Jenner
Also by this author: Revelry


Sunday Brunch is where we ask an author a series of ridiculous questions that have little or nothing to do with books or reading, all in an attempt for you to get to know the person behind the books and maybe, just maybe…pick up one of their titles. Hope you enjoy!


BHR: If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why? name be?

Carmen: I’d be an otter. THEY HOLD HANDS IN THE WATER, PEOPLE!!! I recently had a religious experience watching the otters at Taronga Zoo in Sydney and I think I have the family convinced that we should move to the US in order to have a whole yard full of them.


BHR: We come to your house for dinner, what are we eating?

Carmen: Whatever you can rustle up. I think there’s some skittles in the cupboard. No, I actually make a mean lasagna. I’m pretty alright with baked goods too, but I rarely have time for baking any more.


BHR: If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?

Carmen: Probably Rebel Wilson. I’m not sure why anyone is making a movie about my life though. Make Sugartown a movie instead, so we can cast Stephen James. 😉


BHR: Who would you let punch you directly in the face?

Carmen: Um … no one. I’m a big softly and will likely cry. Actually, I’d probably let Ali punch me in the face as payback for breaking her heart with Harley & Rose, but only this one time.


BHR: You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

Carmen: HOT Mother-freaking-pink! 😉


BHR: Where would you go in a time machine?

Carmen: I’d love to say the 1950’s because I adore the clothes, cars, makeup, hairstyles, houses and movie stars from that era, but I’d be that one housewife who, instead of waiting by the door for my husband with a martini when he got home from a long day at work, would likely drink it myself and tell him to fix his own dinner. So I’m going back to ancient Egypt as Cleopatra where I can sit on a gilded throne and order people around.


BHR: What’s your favorite ’90s jam?

Carmen: No! Too hard! Too hard! Don’t Speak by No Doubt.


BHR: Who do you just hate the most? 😉

Carmen: Nicolas Cage, and those Housewives of fill in the city here… on TV that are famous because they married some random dude with money. And the Kardashians. They can all go away now. 😉


BHR: How old were you when you realised Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny probably never actually knew one another in real life?

Carmen: WTF?! They don’t? I feel like I’ve been lied to my whole life! Thanks Blackheart, b*tches, thanks a lot. 😛


BHR: What is your favorite quote?

Carmen: “We are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.” This is often credited to Ernest Hemingway but it is in fact one of those weird internet mash-up quotes that people kind of ran together and misquoted. Apparently there’s a similar line said by Hemingway and a different line sung by Leonard Cohen in the song “Anthem” that equates to the same thing. It’s still my favorite line though, regardless of who said it.


BHR: If you were an ice cream flavor, what would you be?

Carmen: One of those crazy rainbow flavors with popping candy and mixed nuts because you never know what you’re going to get.


Jenner’s newest title, Harley & Rose, is a complete departure from all her previous work and it’s on sale Tuesday, October 18th! You can add it on Goodreads >HERE<.



Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isn’t her actual wedding day, and that she’s only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?

Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaid’s bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.

Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. She’s spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.

She’s always been his best friend.

He’s always been hers.

She’s in love with him.

He’s … not in love with her.

He’s … marrying someone else.

He’s … hiding something.

He’s … well—it’s complicated.
