An Empty House: You never know what tomorrow will bring. This is a personal essay about coping with and moving on with the “New Normal”. 

The Lost Love: Rejected for her Mexican heritage by the teen-age boy she had a crush on, Lindsay put it behind her. So how come, when they wind up at the same college years later, Lindsay can’t get over her anger at the humiliation? And will Brad ever forgive himself for his callous behavior?

The Dead Guy in the Park: An almost end-of-shift call leads a paramedic and her partner to a dead guy in the park. All she has to do is pronounce him so that the coroner can come get the body. What could possibly go wrong?
*includes a bonus Spanish edition El Difunto del Parque translated by Marianna Carranza

Rekindled: Cynthia and Daniel were college sweethearts torn apart by tragedy. A lifetime later they bump into each other again — Is this their second chance at love?

 A Date with Mistletoe: Sometimes you find that it’s the “Unanswered Prayers” that are the best things to ever happen. When confronted by the man of yesterday alongside the man who means the world to her, there is no doubt in Rachel’s mind that she has the best.

 He is My Brother…: Who can help save the life of a beloved family member? Prayers, hopes and a personal plea for help.

Always, One More Time: Disowned by her parents because of an interracial love affair, Callie Sanders is left alone to raise her son after his father, Jimmy Bernerd, dies fighting in a war on the other side of the world. Desperate to give her son a family she goes to the Bernerd household — what she finds is a second chance at love, acceptance, and family.

 Il Cuore della Notte

Un racconto breve di Nightlife

di Gwendolyn Jensen-Woodard



Lady Jannessa Guillory era la figlia di un ambasciatore, e pertanto era suo compito aiutare suo padre a gestire e mantenere la casa, sposarsi con qualcuno al suo livello… ed essere sempre obbediente. Eppure la notte la chiamava in un modo che non poteva negare. E quando una voce la trovò nell’oscurità, seppe che non poteva frenare la propria passione.

Gwendolyn Jensen-Woodard


Gwendolyn vive nel nordovest del Pacifico con i suoi gatti, suo marito e la sua figlia più piccola, (la più grande sta vivendo la sua vita a Spokane, Washington).


Nel tempo libero, le piace giocare ai videogiochi, chiacchierare con persone di tutto il mondo e lavorare come attrice per doppiaggi e audiolibri.


Scrive soprattutto fantasy, ma è nota per aver valicato i confini tra i generi.

Ha offerto la sua voce per molte commedie online e dirige una compagnia di Podcast con vari show (e ammette di scrivere lei stessa alcuni di questi). Pensa che l’audiodramma sia un grande medium oggi, come ai tempi dei vecchi drammi radiofonici. Gwendolyn pensa che sia importante che ci sia una donna forte tra coloro che gestiscono questi podcast, li scrivono e fanno parte dell’intero processo.


NOTA di Kimberlee, Direttore Editoriale della Vanilla Heart Publishing

Abbiamo conosciuto Gwendolyn un paio di anni fa, quando si è presentata a un’audizione, da cui è poi stata selezionata, per essere la voce in alcuni dei nostri primi audiolibri. Essendo lei una dei proprietari di Gypsy Audio, avevamo sentito che aveva scritto lei alcuni dei fantastici audiodrammi trasmessi lì, e la nostra curiosità continuava a crescere… quando le chiesi se avrebbe preso in considerazione l’idea di scrivere un romanzo o dei racconti brevi, potete immaginare la mia emozione quando rispose che l’avrebbe fatto… e ora l’ha fatto!

Amazon Customer Reviews

5 stars  Way to go Gwendolyn Jensen by Jennifer Baratta 
Amazing wow. Hard to put down. Will definitely read more from you Second one will be worth the wait. Jennifer Baratta

5 stars  Not Sleeping in Seattle by Pepper 
This is a very good short story by a new(ish) author. The story kept my attention and kept me wondering at the same time. I am usually an HP Lovecraft and his school freak, which, so far, this is not; and I am looking forward to more of these stories, even without tentacles. There is obviously a great deal of background to this story and only a small part of it has been revealed.

Has some (good) resemblances to Juliet Blackwell’s “Witchcraft Mysteries,” a personal favorite of mine.

5 stars   Great introduction of characters by Andrea R. 
Great introduction of characters. I’m already attached to Lilah and I look forward to more of her adventures. Appreciate the attention to detail that allows me to stay with the story instead of questioning the author’s intentions.
