Jenny Brown studied history in graduate school. Her first professional sale as a writer was a biographical piece about Louisa May Alcott’s childhood. Years later, her favorite hobby continues to be reading biographies of people who lived in the 18th and 19th centuries. She has earned her living in many different ways including performing as a singer-songwriter in Nashville, developing software, and publishing acclaimed nonfiction. She lives in rural Western Massachusetts.
Jenny's characters are often outcasts or rebels. Her heroes have a long way to go before they become the loving men her heroines deserve. Her heroines are strong, adventurous women who take control of their own fate but must do so within the limitations of the society into which they were born. Readers of mainstream historical fiction appreciate that her books are written with respect for the language, history, and culture of the Georgian era in England in which they are set.
