Bitten by the travel bug from an early age, Jennifer's journeys have inspired many a short story and book. Her aim is to share the colour and sensations of faraway places with her readers. A devoted cat lover, felines often make their appearance in her writing. Monet’s Angels and Monet’s Shadow were inspired by a visit to the famous house and gardens of impressionist painter, Claude Monet.
Rome, her favourite city, is explored in loving detail in If You Loved Me and Remember My Name. Lengthy stays in Sicily where she encountered the plight of feral cats resulted in The Great Sicilian Cat Rescue. (You can read about her cat charity Catsnip here).
As a journalist, her articles have been published widely in the UK and abroad. Her plays include the award-wining End of Story, which examines the relationship of Harold and Primrose Shipman. A trip
to the Marais district of Paris, scene of the deportation of Jews in WW2, inspired The Return.
She lives in a Victorian cottage where she tries to fill her garden with the favourite flowers of artist Claude Monet, helped or hindered by Sheba the black cat. She has just published a novella Mirror, Mirror.
