Hi, there! My real name is Jennifer, but my friends call me Jenny.

I’m a French fry aficionado who also loves coffee, my small southern town, being outside and going on adventures with my hilariously loud family. (3 kids, 2 pets, 1 husband and a partridge in a pear tree. Kidding, no pear trees… only citrus ones.)

Right now, the words that flow, from my brain to the page are mainly picture book manuscripts, author interviews and blog posts for The Lafayette Mom. I’ve shared my writing journey for years over at Magnolias & Manuscripts, and I plan to do much of the same things here. I love telling stories that encourage kids to be authentic, creative & kind. I really hope (& believe) that one of these days I’ll crack the code and find my book on a shelf. Until then, I’ll keep building connections in the KidLit community, asking questions to the ones that have figured it out and sharing what I’ve learned.

Thanks for reading, come back anytime!
