My story

Jennifer taught English, Drama and Classics for twenty years in several schools, including four years in Paris. She later completed an MA in Creative Writing for Children at Manchester Metropolitan University and is also an alumna of the Golden Egg Academy.

Now retired, at least from teaching, Jennifer lives with her husband in West Yorkshire but enjoyes travelling to new places, particularly if they have mountains, including most recently to beautiful Romania. When not reading, writing or on her travels, she most loves to spend time with her expanding family. 

Igloo is her debut novel; her work-in-progress is Going West, a story for Adults

Events

Jennifer is available for author talks, creative writing workshops and school visits. For school visits, Jennifer is able to provide customised workshops for year groups 7-13, drawing on her twenty years of English and Drama teaching. This could, for example, use some of the themes and content of 'Igloo' as a springboard for AQA English Language writing tasks, other creating writing or linking to English Literature texts.
