Intro Jan Springer & Giveaway


I’m Jan Springer and my dream job has always been writing. I got what I wished for because …years ago after a car accident that left me with whiplash and positional vertigo (still have it), my dream job became a necessary reality!

In order to pay the bills I write full-time and I love it. Currently I’m published with Ellora’s CaveSiren-BookStrand, Total E Bound and Pocket Books.

Some of my stories run on the dark side. My Desperadoes series is based on solar flares taking out our electrical grids with women having to do things they’d never dreamed of doing in order to survive. My Outlaw Lovers series gives a very dark glimpse into the future where women have lost all their rights and become nothing more than men’s possessions.

To take a look at my other hot and dark books give my website a try. Lots of books there.

I live and write in Ontario Canada, commuting between Oshawa and cottage country near Haliburton. Three huggable cats have adopted me. The oldest is Spunky, he’s 18, the middle is Emily, she’s 11 and the youngest is Chee Chee (who loves cheese) is 4.

I love photography, nature walks, gardening  and updating my website


So! What’s your dream job?

Are you living it, working on making it come true or just keeping it your dream for now?

Let me know in the comments section and I will pick a name to win a free pdf copy of Passionate Ink, my shapeshifter/tattoo/tentacle erotic romance. Winners names for prizes will be announced in a few days so don’t forget to check back!!


Thanks for joining us at Darker Temptations and until next time, Happy Reading!!

  1. When I was growing up my dream job was to be a biology teacher but I ended up going to college and becoming a medical lab tech instead. After 20 years of that I finally got into education. I quit my job to take care of my dad but I wanted something to do that I could still be available for my dad anytime he needed me. Now I work with special education students in the local school system. I love it! They are so much fun and each day is definitely a new day! Thanks for the chance to win!


  2. That’s fantastic, Suz. I’m glad you have a job that you love and it is such an important job too. Thanks for your post!

  3. My dream job? Well I love construction, making different things. And that is probably the reason I am in the shape I am in now. For as much as I loved doing this type of job, women are just not built for that kind of physical labor. Oh many can do it and for many years, but a woman’s body will not hold up as long as a man can. lol…. I have now been disable to work for over 12 years now, due to problems with my neck and back. But the funny thing is, I believe I would probably do it again lol…..
    Happy reading and writing*

  4. We sound like two peas in a pod. I love building things too and I have problems with my neck and back. Thanks for your post Teresa!

  5. I would love to be review books and get paid for reading. I just recently discovered my old love for reading. I always loved to read books,but had gotten away from it for years. Know that my daughter is in middle school and involved in sports,band, I take a book with me everywere I go. It gives me something to do while I am waiting on her.

  6. That’s a great dream job, Laura. Thanks for sharing. Maybe you can open up your own book review site some day. 🙂

  7. My dream job is working with pregnant teens. I volunteer now with the big brothers and big sisters. But one day I want to open a place for pregnant teens. Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. I don’t have dream job but a dream lifestyle–I want to write books, serve as an elected local official, sit on non-profit boards, and work part time in a book store or something of that nature. I like to juggle several different things, as I find working across borders keeps my ideas active and my creativity in high gear. Glad to be blogging with you here Jan.

  9. I’m mostly doing my dream job now, Jan–I’m mostly a stay-at-home mom, and I do freelance editing when I can. I used to work full time as an editor in the software industry, and am loving the transition to working more on fiction, and romance in particular 🙂

  13. Cool! *waves at fellow Ontario-person…or is that Ontarioan?* Hm, as much as I hate my full-time job I would miss it if I stopped. I just wish there were more hours in the day so I could also write and watch all my favourite TV;).

  14. He he he! I’m not sure Tina – I like Ontarioan. Me too! I want more hours! Squeeee!

  15. I would love to be a food critique and eat my way around the world at all the best places:)

  17. When I grew up, I never dreamed of the various jobs I’ve worked. A job was a job. Then I discovered writing. Now, my dream job would be working full time as a writer. Great post!

  18. Hi Stacey! It’s always wonderful to meet a fellow writer. Me too, had so many jobs…farm, factory, office, hairstyling, accounting and the list goes on…a job was always a job…until I hit writing. I soooo can relate to you. 🙂 Thanks for posting!

  19. I’ m lucky enough to be living my dream job. I love being a full-time writer!

  20. Hi N.J.! Thanks for dropping by. You rock! Love your books. Keep writing!! Woot!

  22. The nomenclature is certainly messed up.The main thing I get out of this paper is that the uniparental DNA is rather diverse in the south, and much less diverse and more typical noaae-st-Mediterranenn Europe in the northeast.

  23. Why on earth did you introduce the new player? It has several disadvantages: If the video takes some time loading you cannot skip back easily with the 'skip back' button. Even worse, if the native sound of the video is too loud, you cannot access the volume hands on or visually assure yourself of the volume level, you have to click once more. Isn't the goal of every new feature that it should make things easier? I just don't see the progress in this new player. It's a step backwards. I hope you can make use of this criticism.Thanks
