Jenn Carpenter is an author and freelance writer who lives in Grand Ledge, Michigan with her husband and their four sons. Urged into writing by her wild imagination as a child, Jenn put her award winning writing career on hold for over a decade to raise a family. She blew the dust off her keyboard the day her husband deployed to Iraq, inspired to start writing again by the beautiful tragedy of sending a loved one off to war. Jenn’s memoir One Army Wife's Tale is her first published work. Hardwood Floors is her first novel.
