Hi, I’m Jenni. I’ve worked in banking and administration since leaving school, picking up an Open University degree along the way. I work at RSPB Leighton Moss nature reserve which is well worth a visit if you haven’t been yet.
I decided to take the Creative Writing course at Carnforth High School in September 2008 as I had just moved to the area and wanted to meet people and it was that or pottery. I had no prior experience of writing stories, although I made up several in my head.
It turned out to be the best decision I ever made. I have written my first novel and am trying to get it published. I’m working on a second follow up novel, as well as various short stories, including a series on mice.
I enjoy writing poetry for homework, but I’m not as good as my colleagues, so I stick to prose writing. Here is a sample written in October 2008. I hope you like it.
