Jennie Adams' first attempt to become a writer at age four involved sneaking off to go to school with her older siblings. Unfortunately, those efforts were foiled by a very small tricycle, three-and-a-half very long miles of dirt road between her and the school, and a vigilant mother who could drive faster than Jennie could pedal.
Jennie walked straight out of her years of schooling into a bank job. There, she learned that there is no automatic carriage return on a ledger machine, a trans-coding machine will blow up if you use it continuously for several hours, and a waste bin full of carbon paper burns very quickly. After some time on the road as a relief bank officer (truly, it had nothing to do with the unfortunate incidents mentioned above), Jennie discovered her real-life hero and fell instantly in love. On their first date they agreed they were going to get married — and they've been together ever since.
Her first real “story” was written whilst raising two babies. Sadly, there didn't seem to be much of a market for the tale of a cartoon possum who enjoyed retail shopping.
While Jennie shifted from at-home-mother to secretary, to piano teacher and numerous other jobs, the desire to write grew and grew until, when her children were in primary school and Jennie was working part-time as a Church secretary, she signed up for a correspondence writing course and began to write and submit her work.
Jennie's first sale was an article about alpacas, and she takes no responsibility for the fact that the publication closed down soon after her piece was printed. Jennie wrote her first romance novel soon after, and sold her first Harlequin Romance in 2004. She hopes to write many more Harlequin stories in the future.
When she isn't writing, working her current part-time job or taking long walks, Jennie loves to read (romance, of course), watch movies and eat out with her friends. Jennie lives in a small inland city in New South Wales with her husband, and an elderly tabby cat with a royalty complex.
