Taste Us! You’ll Like Us! Meet @Jaefiction for #LoveSpanks

[Ana’s note: When I explained the “Taste Us!” series to Jae, she wondered what recipe to post. She gave an example of a recipe she could not use. I loved it and asked her to share with you. Here it is!]


I have been writing almost all of my life and writing lesbian fiction for over a decade. To me, writing romances between women is twice the fun because it means I get to create two strong female characters and watch them fight, love, and grow together.

Jorie, one of the main characters in my paranormal romance novel Second Nature and in my short story “The Snow Liger,” is infamous for her horrible cooking that has been known to send people screaming into the night, never to be heard of again. Her mate, Griffin, is a shape-shifter who can turn into a four hundred pound liger, so she likes to eat—a lot. They might not sound like a match made in heaven, but they learned to adjust…and Jorie figured out how to cook shape-shifter-style.

Here is her tried and proven recipe:

  1. Throw twenty pounds of raw steak onto the table.
  2. Get out of the way.

About Jae

Jae grew up amidst the vineyards and gently sloping hills of southwestern Germany. She spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book, earning her the nickname “professor.”

The writing bug bit her at the age of eleven. For the last nine years, she’s been writing mostly in English.

She used to work as a psychologist but gave up her day job in December 2013 to become a full-time writer and a part-time editor. As far as she’s concerned, it’s the best job in the world.

When she’s not writing, she likes to spend her time reading, indulging her ice cream and office supply addictions, and watching way too many crime shows.

    LOL but urgh Jae! My dog would would like it though. Provided you cut the meat up, she’s too lazy to tear it up herself.
    I loved Second Nature. Nice to have shape-shifters that weren’t wolves. Griffin’s struggle to deal with her dads’ (yes that is plural!) lion pack when she had always allowed her solitary tiger side to dominate was great and the scenes with Jorie’s cats were really funny. The whole dream seer idea was really fascinating too 🙂

      Thanks for reading, Lynn!

      I wrote “Second Nature” for just that reason–to write about shapeshifters who weren’t wolves. Not that I dislike wolves or anything, but I found big cats fascinating as well.

        You’re welcome 🙂

        It did make me wonder what real ligers and whatever the other cross is called (tigons? Tions?) are like. Are they solitary or more pack-like?

        I like jaguars myself!

            Ah! That’s the benefit of having two animal-obsessed kids and a bookcase full of animal encyclopaedias. The tiger father, lion mother hybrid is called a tigon, I am informed. How typical to put the male’s name first.
            When the kids and I were discussing whether black panthers were actually leopards or jaguars (they are both, btw) we discovered that a couple of jaglions were born ‘inadvertently’ in a sanctuary in Cananda in 2006, one of which has the black colouring of its dad.

      Thanks! I hope you enjoy it. There’s also a spin-off to “Second Nature,” titled “True Nature” and several short stories that go with those novels.


Thank you so much for joining the discussion! Please play nicely or you may be asked to stand in the corner. ;)
