Jenni Ward is a regional South Australian kidlit author. She writes fantasy, contemporary, and has an upcoming cyberpunk series.
Jenni lives in a strange part of Australia where four seasons regularly occur within a day. She has two wonderful children and two cats who enjoy tearing through the house at 2am to keep her company.
She began writing in primary school but it wasn't until grade 7 that a teacher encouraged her to write something longer. That story borrowed heavily from the atmosphere and tropes of L.M. Montgomery and never did manage to receive an ending.
She has worked a variety of jobs including in an art gallery, a library technician, and a teacher. Now, Jenni writes young adult novels because she enjoys revisiting the age of discovery and adventure. She's not huge on writing romantic elements but every now and then a little sneaks into a story. Her goal with writing is to create worlds and characters that others will love as much as she did when writing.
On her bookshelf you will find mainly young adult books from contemporary to fantasy, but spends a lot of time reading younger books with her unicorn-pegasus-pony-obsessed daughter and sharks-and-wolves obsessed son.
