A former high-school and college English teacher for 17 happy years, Jenny now practices what she preached: the discipline of rewriting, which, in her humble opinion, is the key to a writer’s success.
Jenny is represented by Jonathan Lyons of Curtis Brown, LTD, New York City. Her second novel, And We Stay, will be published by Random House in early 2014.
