Jordyn Redwood – Romantic Real Life Interview – Part 2 of 2

Shannon here: Romantic suspense author, Jordyn Redwood shares insight into her real life romance, plus a chance to win her latest medical thriller, Poison. Comment on any post dated Feb 18 – 22 to get your name in the drawing. Deadline: March 2nd, 11:59 pm central time. Here’s Jordyn:

  • Where is the most romantic place you and your spouse have ever been?

Jordyn: The most romantic place we’ve ever been was California wine country. We took a trip out there a few years after we were married to visit friends and then took a few days on our own to peruse through Sonoma Valley. There is just something about beautiful California weather, free wine and being with the one you love to make a fun trip. 

  • What the most romantic present your spouse ever bought for you?

Jordyn: It was a charm necklace with one of my favorite photos of our two daughters when they were little.

  •  Do you and your spouse have a favorite romantic destination?

Jordyn: We have never been but we are dying to do just a trip with the two of us to Hawaii. Hopefully, we can make that dream happen in the next couple of years.

  •  How soon after meeting your spouse did you know he/she was the one?

Jordyn: I definitely knew long before my husband. I think I knew before we even started “officially” dating. He had just helped me and a roommate move into a new apartment and we were having dinner with friends. I remember looking over at him and thinking, “I can’t imagine my life without him.”

  • Where did you go on your honeymoon?

Jordyn: We went to Orlando, Florida for a few days where it monsoon style rained and I ended up in the emergency room. Ah, those honeymoon stories. Then we took a cruise and visited Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica.

  • What romantic gesture does your spouse do that melts you every time.

Jordyn: It doesn’t sound romantic but I think every married woman can attest—any time he does housework without my asking is seriously romantic. It takes something off my plate and leaves more time for the two of us.

  • Who is the most romantic—you or your spouse?

Jordyn: I would probably say my husband. He’s very faithful about giving flowers and sentimental cards and making chocolate covered strawberries for no reason other than I really like them and he loves me.

  • Who said “I love you.” first?

Jordyn: That was me . . . a long time before my husband ever said the phrase which was a little frustrating but when he finally did say those words—it was much more meaningful because I knew he really meant them. 

About Jordyn: Jordyn Redwood is a pediatric ER nurse by day, suspense novelist by night. She hosts Redwood’s Medical Edge, a blog devoted to helping contemporary and historical authors write medically accurate fiction. Her debut novel, Proof, garnered a starred review from Library Journal and has been endorsed by the likes of Dr. Richard Mabry, Lynette Eason, and Mike Dellosso to name a few. The second book in the Bloodline Trilogy, Poison, releases Feb, 2013. You can connect with Jordyn via her website at

About the book – Poison: Five years ago, Keelyn Blake’s armed, mentally ill stepfather took her family hostage in their house in rural Colorado. She and her half-sister Raven made it out alive, but others did not. Authorities blamed the father’s frequent hallucinations about a being named Lucent, but in the end, even the best of the FBI’s hostage negotiators failed to overcome the man’s delusions and end the standoff peacefully.

Now, Lucent is back, and he’s no hallucination. In fact, he is a very real person with dangerous motives. He has kidnapped Raven’s daughter, and–Keelyn worries–maybe has hurt Raven as well. Though she is estranged from her sister, Keelyn feels the immediate need to find Raven and save what family she has left. But when others who were involved in that fateful day start dying, some by mysterious circumstances, Keelyn wonders if she can emerge unscathed a second time.


Come back Feb 22nd for Christine Lindsay!
