Historical fiction with spirit
Jennifer is a marine biologist by training, who developed an equal passion for history whilst stalking Mary, Queen of Scots of childhood holidays (she since moved on to Richard III). She completed her BSc and MSc at the University of Hull and has worked as a marine environmental consultant since graduating.
Enrolling on an adult education workshop on her return to the north-east reignited Jennifer’s pastime of creative writing, and she has been filling notebooks ever since. In 2014, Jennifer won the Story Tyne short story competition, and also continues to work on developing her poetic voice, reading at a number of events, and with several pieces available online.
Jennifer’s best-selling Kindred Spirits novels are published by Crooked Cat Books and available via Amazon, along with her self-published timeslip novella, The Last Plantagenet?, which joined Ocelot Press in 2018. Jennifer’s novel, The Raided Heart, was published under the Ocelot Press imprint in autumn 2019. Jennifer has written Ocelot Press’s first non-fiction title, A Novel Approach, to help writers channel their creativity.
