An Interview with Ohio Author Jennifer Geiger
Meet Ohio Author Jennifer Geiger! Jennifer is the author of several titles, including her new book The Blah Mobile! We connected
with Jennifer last year at the Monday Creek Book Festival. Recently, we re-connected and asked Jennifer about life in
general, writing, and more…
GM: What is the premise for your new book?
JG: My new book is called, The Blah Mobile. It was just
released at the end of June. It involves an eight-year-old girl who learns
about being nice when others are not.
GM: How do you maintain thoughts and ideas?
JG: I’m a storyteller, so when a thought, any thought, comes to
me, I jot it down in a word document on my computer. I go back and forth,
adding, subtracting thoughts, until I get my thoughts turned into a readable
GM: Where do you like to write?
JG: I go to my den, it’s a little room located in the back of my
home. It’s quiet and away from other distractions. It’s where I go to read,
pray, and to write. My own little space where I can relax or work without
GM: Do you have a muse or other inspiration that sparks creative
JG: Not really. I have a vivid imagination, so, when I get a
thought, I wonder how will it play out in a story, and then I run with it.
GM: What are you currently reading?
JG: I like mysteries, Christian Mysteries. Current I’m reading The
O’Malley Series by Dee Henderson
GM: What are you currently writing?
JG: My latest book just
came out, so I’ll be busy with that for a while, but I have started putting
together words for a new book written from the perspective of the people who
were the recipients who interacted with Jesus.
GM: Do you have advice for novice writers?
JG: Just like life is lived one day at a time, writing occurs
one word at a time. Don’t give up, keep writing. I didn’t start out to be an
author, I wrote for my personal entertainment, but four books later, (Witness,
a workbook for Witness, Patmos, and The Blah Mobile) here
GM: Please share your book marketing secrets...
JG: I’d have to admit, this is the hardest part of writing. There
are a lot of good writers out there, and getting your book noticed will not be
easy. It takes work, a little luck and a lot of follow through, along with help
from other authors and a strong determination to not give up.

Jennifer Geiger, the daughter of an
oil company dispatcher, was born in Kansas, and because of her father’s
employment, in her elementary years, the family transferred to Ohio. She has
three grown daughters, eight grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.
Jennifer has been married over thirty years to her husband, Jim. As a child,
she was an avid storyteller and often entertained family and friends with
various adventures created by the characters they supplied. As she approached
adulthood, her passion for storytelling waned, it wasn’t until after she
married and had her own family that her desire to create stories returned.
Encouraged on by her
younger brother, Jennifer picked up her pen and completed her first
novel; Witness; a story about the Apostle
John as he viewed life with Jesus. Witness was followed
with an eight-session video and workbook series created to place the reader
into the shoes of the Apostle John, allowing them to experience life with Jesus
through the eyes of the disciple He loved. Following Witness,
Jennifer produced Patmos, a story that picks up where Witness ends
and allows the reader to see the adventures of John, as he is exiled and
receives a special revelation from God. Her latest endeavor, The Blah
Mobile came out in June 2022. It's a story about being nice when others
