WHO I AM

Hello, my name’s Jen. I’m an award-winning poet and short story writer. My debut short story collection ‘The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night’ is published by Two Roads, and my children’s books, ‘Franklin’s Flying Bookshop’ and ‘Franklin and Luna Go To The Moon’ are published by Thames and Hudson. I’m also the author of the Sunday Times bestselling ‘Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops’ series, ‘The Bookshop Book’ and ‘The Hungry Ghost Festival.’

I run writing workshops, give talks at universities & book festivals on a variety of topics, judge literary prizes, and take on freelance writing and editing. If you would like to speak with me about the possibility of working together, please get in touch via email: [email protected] x
