About the Author
"A novelist to rival Sheldon..." Cosmopolitan magazine.
"Superbly crafted thrillers...compelling suspense." The Sunday Times.
It was a meeting with Sidney Sheldon that inspired Jennifer Bacia (pronounced 'batcher') to write her first suspense thriller. The results were a debut author's dream. Publishers battled over the rights and 'Indecent Ambition' was bought for a record-breaking advance. The novel was an international best seller, a Book Club Choice, a lead title in the UK and the movie rights were optioned. Sales were also made to leading foreign publishers and an extract featured in 'Cosmopolitan' magazine.
Now the author of 8 successful novels, 2 non-fiction works and dozens of short stories, Jennifer has also written for television and had regular newspaper and magazine byline columns.
Her best-selling suspense thrillers, 'A Very Public Scandal', 'Whisper Her Name', 'Indecent Ambition' and 'Never Forget Me' are irresistible fast-paced stories set against the glamour and intrigue of international backgrounds. Jennifer also writes romantic suspense and contemporary romance: 'Everything To Lose', 'Best Kept Secrets', One Door Closes' and 'The Almost Perfect Lover'. She promises her readers a book they simply can't put down!
