Jenni James

Biography

AJ's Bio
Born and raised in Nottinghamshire, UK. I currently still live in this city with my beautiful wife, two adorable children and my crazy weimaraner dog Charlie (or Chaz as we like to call him!). My evening walks with Chaz across nearby farm land sparked the initial and continual inspiration to create The Scarmap books.

When I am not working I generally spend quality time with my family; playing football is a must along with some balletic 'good toes and naughty toes' (I have a little boy and a little girl)! But my true hobbies are reading and writing great literature. My love of words goes back to childhood; I loved how master storytellers such as JRR Tolkien and Philip Pullman could transport me to different worlds, and I wanted to emulate that and provoke the same emotions in others with my own words. For me there is nothing to compare with books for pure escapisim or to convey powerful messages - words continue to be my passion.

Since I was a little boy being a writer has been my ultimate dream and I love every part of it now that this dream has been realised. It's not been an easy path to follow; a love of poetry and books is not so cool at school, right? But ultimately anything worth having is worth working hard for, stick with your dreams and do everything possible to achieve them.

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
Harriet Tubman
