Jenna was a voracious reader as a child and adolescent but found there were never enough books to read. More than that, there were no books featuring protagonists who looked like her.


Now, Jenna continues to read as much as she can and finds there is never enough time to get ahead of her TBR pile. She is overjoyed to see so much more diversity (including Asian-American protagonists) in children's books than she could have imagined as a young reader!

Jenna resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, son, daughter, and mini-goldendoodle. She loves nothing more than writing middle-grade and young adult novels with a large cup of coffee as the rain pitter-patters on the rooftop and windows outside. Jenna is represented by Emily Forney at BookEnds Literary Agency.
