Author Interview

What inspired you to write Inventing Vivian?

I wanted to write a story where the woman was the smart one, all logical and practical, while the man was the one who was moved by his emotions. I am kind of tired of people assuming that science is for boys and poetry and art are for girls. The whole idea is outdated, and there are so many women and girls who are amazing at math and science and the STEM subjects.

What do you love the most about this story?

I love having a heroine who is awkward and nerdy, and the hero loves her anyway.

What challenged you about writing it?

I am not smart with science and math and chemistry and all the things Vivian knows, so I had to learn a lot. I had so many questions, and the ones I couldn't answer with google, I luckily found smart people to answer. That took a lot of work, hunting down those answers.

Which character do you most relate to and why?

I relate most to Lord Benedict. He is all about peace and meditation and acting on his feelings rather than logic. I'm like that, I think.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

There is a character in this story who is an immigrant to London from China, and it was important to me to represent that part of the population. London was such a crowded city--I guess it still is--with all kinds of people. Not just lords and ladies. And I really don't want to be preachy or have people feel like they were expected to learn a lesson from my story, but immigration and the rights of immigrants is important to me. My grandpa was an immigrant.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

When I'm not writing, I love to play tennis. I try to play every day, and usually do

(The Blue Orchid Society #2)

June 7, 2021 by Covenant Communications

Ladies of London’s High Society are known for their social graces and poise. Vivian Kirby boasts neither of these enviable qualities, though she does offer impressive conversation on chemical compositions. Unfortunately, it appears that not many men want a brilliant wife. So it is that Vivian finds kinship with a group of young women who embrace each other’s differences: The Blue Orchid Society.

After an extended stay in China, Lord Benedict has returned transformed to his family’s estate, where an encounter with Vivian, whose scientific knowledge he once undermined, leaves him determined to make amends. He arranges to help forward her research—anonymously, of course. Through letters, Vivian establishes a warm friendship with her secret benefactor, even as she’s unexpectedly drawn into a murder investigation that forces her to work alongside Benedict to unearth the truth. Soon, Vivian fears she may be falling in love with two men, never suspecting that they are one and the same.

Solving Sophronia
(The Blue Orchid Society #1)
By Jennifer Moore
Historical Romance
Paperback & ebook, 224 Pages
May 1, 2020 by Covenant Communications

Lady Sophronia Bremerton is a far cry from the typical debutante, but she's the toast of London's upper class for one simple reason: she's a society columnist for the London Illustrated News, and the gentry loves seeing their exploits printed in the gossip pages. But Sophie has bigger plans - she aspires to be an investigative reporter. When a stuffy ballroom at yet another Season proves to be nothing more than the usual rumor mill, Sophie seeks respite in the library alongside four other young women who, for their own reasons, are also looking for escape. As the conversation turns to their secret ambitions, the women form a sisterhood and a bold plan: they will make their dreams a reality, no matter the obstacles. Thus begins the Blue Orchid Society.

Hearing of a murder in a London rookery, Sophie seizes the opportunity to prove her skills. Detective Jonathan Graham doesn't believe a civilian, a noblewoman at that, should be anywhere near a murder investigation, but Sophie insists on helping bring the killer to justice. Her investigative prowess doesn't go unnoticed by the police, especially Jonathan, who can't decide whether this intrepid reporter is a thorn in his side or the woman of his dreams. But as the case grows more complicated and dangerous, their very lives - and their hearts - may be at risk.
