Jennifer Lynn Barnes is an accomplished best-selling American author of fictional novels.

Jennifer goes usually by Jen and has written over a dozen young adult novels, many of which have received positive critical acclaim and reception from readers. She was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She has been many things in her life, from modeling as a teen to being a self-described comic book geek, a debutante, dancer, volleyball player, competitive cheerleader, lemur aficionado, and a primate cognition researcher.

When it comes to writing, she’s been writing for a long time, as far back as she can remember. She wrote and completed a full book when she was in high school, something she calls a practice book and promises the world that no one will ever see. She wrote the book Golden when she was in college the summer after her freshman year, at nineteen years old.

In 2002 she graduated high school. She then attended Yale University, graduating in 2006 with her degree in cognitive science, which is where individuals study brain and thought. She also received a graduate degree from Cambridge University where Jen was a qualified Fulbright Scholar. She also got a Ph.D from Yale University in 2012.

The author not only holds the accomplishment of having penned her first novel and having it published while she was nineteen years old, she was able to write five more books and sell them while still enrolled in college. On top of writing novels largely aimed at a young adult audience, Jen also wrote original pilot scripts for various television networks, among them MTV and USA.

She is a top expert on fandom psychology and cognitive science when it comes to fiction and imagination. She works as an associate professor teaching students at the University of Oklahoma, holding a dual appointment there in professional writing and psychology.

Her book The Inheritance Games has been picked for development by Amazon, which will put out a television series based on the young adult novel. The project is part of Sony Pictures TV and Osprey Productions. Barnes is set to co-produce the Amazon adaptation which will bring her unique world where a character is set to potentially inherit billions from a mysterious and eccentric billionaire to life.

Main character Avery Grambs may not know for certain what she is going to do with the rest of her life, but when it comes to the future, she does have a plan. She wants to get through high school, hopefully land a scholarship, and then just get out and make things happen.

However, she was not anticipating a random event changing her plans and her fortune. Everything is suddenly turned upside down when Tobias Hawthorne passes away. The billionaire did not leave his fortune to his family or friends but instead this teenager, Avery, has received nearly all of it. But she has no idea why this is the case or even who the billionaire is. It’s a puzzling mystery– in more ways than one.

But there is a catch if Avery wants to receive the inheritance. She has to move into Hawthorne House, a gigantic and sprawling manor where there are secret passages. Every single room there has the influence of the elder man who passed away and shows the love that he had for all things riddles, puzzles, and codes.

However, Hawthorne House currently still plays home to the relatives that Hawthorne has just put out of his inheritance. That extends to the four grandsons, who are intelligent, magnetic, and dangerous. They also grew up thinking that when the day came that their grandfather passed away, they were set to inherit the billions he possessed.

Grayson Hawthorne was supposed to be the heir, but this new twist has changed everything. He also doesn’t trust Avery, thinking that she must be trying to con them in some way, and won’t stop until he takes her down. Then there’s Jameson, his brother, who thinks that the girl is simply one last attempt at his grandfather to provide a puzzle or a riddle that must be solved.

Caught up in an entirely new world with privilege, wealth, and danger everywhere, she’s going to have to play the game if she wants to make it through this. What will happen, and will she really earn billions? Read this book to find out!

Avery Grambs has to deal with the fallout from what happened previously (in The Inheritance Games) and track down a man that might have the answers to her questions.

However, the clues just keep building up, showing that there’s a connection there to the family than she would have pictured. The mystery continues to grow and Grayson and Jameson keep pulling her off in different directions.

With danger around each corner and new foes coming out of the woodwork looking to take Avery out any way possible, can she stay safe long enough to get her answers? Read this book to find out!
