Meet J’nell Ciesielski Author of Award-winning novel, Among the Poppies


Believing she was born in the wrong era, J’nell Ciesielski spends her days writing heart-stopping heroes, brave heroines, and adventurous exploits in times gone by. Winner of the Romance Through the Ages contest and Maggie Award, J’nell can often be found dreaming of a second home in Scotland, indulging in chocolate of any kind, or watching old black and white movies. Born a Florida girl, she now calls Virginia home, along with her very understanding husband, young daughter, and one lazy beagle.

Among the Poppies releases today, June 11, 2018

J’nell’s eye for details is one reason she is able to call herself an award-winning novelist.

Read what happens with Gwyn Ruthers, a woman way ahead of her time, enters WWI as an ambulance driver. Love can’t be far away:

Gwyn Ruthers longs for adventure far beyond the stifled life society restricts her to as a chauffeur’s daughter. With the war to end all wars exploding across the Channel, Gwyn signs up to drive ambulances on the Front. Rambling over bomb blasted roads and living in mud bogged trenches is far from the exotic travels she had in mind. A simpler life doesn’t look quite as bad as she once thought. Especially when a handsome captain has her rethinking her objections to settling down.

Don’t miss her starred review on Publisher’s Weekly:


  1. Glad to meet you, J'nell. I wouldn't be surprised if your book becomes a best-seller. I posted a review on Amazon.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Beth. It is a pip, isn't it?

  3. J'nell, hope your book does great! Never heard of a woman ambulance driver during that day and time. Must have been rough. May God bless the sale of your book.
