FF Jensen

Biography

Behind my pseudonym…

I’m an Argentinian-born Australian writer. From a very early age, I developed a keen interest in creative writing, both in English and in Spanish. I’m the proud mum of an adult daughter, and I live with my partner and three gorgeous black cats.
I’ve got a degree in ESL (English as a Second Language) and English studies. I’m also a NAATI-certified English-Spanish translator (National Accreditation Authority For Translators And Interpreters Ltd, Australia). I’ve also completed a Diploma in Web Development at TAFE NSW (Technical And Further Education New South Wales), Wentworth Falls, NSW, Australia.
My work experience is diverse: I’ve worked teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) and ELE (Español Como Lengua Extranjera; Spanish As A Second Language); as an English–Spanish / Spanish–English translator; a graphic and web designer, and as an IT trainer and technical writer.

Phew! What else?
I’ve also been an aikido student and became an aikido first dan with the American Aikido Federation. I’m a keen pursuer of fitness-related activities and believe in mindfulness and meditation as a tool for self-development.

Weird, unreal, but VERY GOOD!
I would have never thought that my first novel would win an award.
So what's next?
Ah, of course... I'll continue writing more books... and now that I mention it, I just published another book!
