 Jenny & James

Jenny was born in Poole, Dorset, in the South of England and has spent most of her life in that beautiful county. Her first writing success came, when aged 14, she won a National Essay Competition sponsored by a tea company. The prize of £5 and a year's supply of tea-bags wasn't enough to encourage her straight into a career as an author and at 16 she was more interested in being the singer in a local rock band. Luckily for rock-n-roll Jenny realised writing was her real love and, after a few years, happily gave up the microphone for the keyboard (computer not musical!)

By the early 1990’s Jenny’s short stories were being published in many UK magazines, and in 1994 her first horsey book sold to the Kenilworth Press, who later brought out three more of her titles. The Scandinavian publishing house Stabenfeldt commissioned another seventeen books and these were published in seven languages across the world.

The experience on which Jenny's books are based ranges from her work in a Stud Farm, Riding School and with polo ponies, but most of all from her deep love of horses and the joy of sharing her life with such amazing beings.

Jenny, who's very proud of her wonderful family, Donna, Rachael and Dylan lives happily on the edge of a Dorset village with husband, Robin.
