That’s How I Blog! Chat With Jen Forbus of Jen’s Book Thoughts

Jen Forbus of Jen's Book Thoughts

That’s How I Blog! is my talk show (now podcast) where I interview bloggers about what they read growing up, what’s on their bookshelves and how they fell into the world of blogging. It’s in a bit of transition as I try to figure out the best way to host it and where (it could possibly end up being here permanently), but in the meantime, I am still recording shows. I will be posting them here until I can get all of the details sorted. If you are interested in either being a guest on the show or recommending a guest for the show, please send an e-mail to nicole [at] linussblanket [dot] com.

I have long been a reader of Jen Forbus’ blog Jen’s Book Thoughts. I am in awe of the depth of knowledge that she brings to her reviews and blog. She knows so much about mystery and crime fiction that when Amy and I were doing  podcast on international mysteries, she was the first person we thought of to help give up some grounding in the genre. In fact, when I chatted with Jen last week, it was very difficult for me to NOT spend the entire time picking her brain about the future of mysteries, developing trends and books that I should read. We did manage to chat some about her blog, her library and a special project she has going on this summer.

Here is what Jen had to say about herself…

Ohio’s own femme fatale. I love to read; I especially love immersing myself in the intricate world of crime fiction.

  1. I’ve told Jen that she was like my “gateway drug” into the mystery/crime fiction community. I was already a reader and fan, but she showed how much the “civilians” can be an active part of that community as well. 😉 So I started attending events such as the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books and Bouchercon and having the time of my life! (And now have a TBR pile/mountain that is out of control, in the best way!) She’s fabulous and so very generous of heart…just love her to death!

    1. She is wonderful! And I see you have found that she is a great resources as well! Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your stack!
