Jenna Black is your typical writer. Which means she's an "experience
junkie." She got her BA in physical anthropology and French
from Duke University.
Once upon a time, she dreamed she would be the next Jane Goodall,
camping in the bush making fabulous discoveries about primate behavior.
Then, during her senior year at Duke, she did some actual research
in the field and made this shocking discovery: primates spend something
like 80% of their time doing such exciting things as sleeping and
Concluding that this discovery was her life's work in the field
of primatology, she then moved on to such varied pastimes as grooming
dogs and writing technical documentation. Among her other experiences
. . .
- Ballroom dancing.
- Traveling all seven continents. Yes, even Antarctica.
- Becoming a Life Master in Bridge.
- Singing in a barbershop chorus.
Read the true story of Jenna's first trip out of the
country by herself at the age of 16: Jenna's
Zaire Adventure. And remember, insanity is a good thing
for a writer.
She's also a proud member of the Heart
of Carolina Romance Writers, and would love for her readers
to support her fellow authors!
Jenna is represented by Miriam Kriss, of the Irene
Goodman Literary Agency.
