Jenna's story is a memoir about a woman's journey of self-discovery through loss, betrayal, bravery, redemption and freedom. It had an engrossing intrigue level of a true mystery thriller, it kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next.

Kathleen Anderson recently reviewed Schultz's debut novel: "Jenna's story is a memoir about a woman's journey of self-discovery through loss, betrayal, bravery, redemption and freedom. . . the story had an engrossing intrigue level of a true mystery thriller, it kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next."
Jenna Collier Hayes hadn't planned on being a widow on her 42nd birthday. But then again birthdays were never Jenna’s strong suit, and the cruel irony of her celebration day mocked her once again. She wasn't prepared for the life that her husband’s death promised her. It wasn’t supposed to end this way. They were supposed to live happily ever after.
The idea for Schultz's legal thriller had its genesis in the real-life tragedy of the bombing of TWA Flight 800. Watch the thrilling new electronic book trailer from Happy Birthday Jenna on Youtube.
In a recent interview, the author explained the cover art, which many have found perplexing: "I asked my daughter to render the cover. She is an amazingly talented young artist. I gave her two passages to read. She nailed it. Happy Birthday, Jenna is a journey into the subconscious of a woman unable to deal with multiple traumas of her youth. The face on the cover, a broken porcelain doll face, is a representation of the main character's persona as a result of childhood abuse. The hair, medusa-like, portends Jenna's dream, which her psychiatrist uses to help her understand her choices in life."
Happy Birthday Jenna is now available through all the major online book distributors.
