Jenny Howe is a professor of writing and literature at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, where she teaches courses on children’s media. Her academic writing has been published in Young Adult Literature in the Composition Classroom: Essays on Practical Applications (MacFarland Press, 2018).

Jenny enjoys writing fiction for young adult and adult audiences and is currently working on her debut novel, a romantic comedy.

When not writing, Jenny spends her time collecting more books than she’ll ever read, making nerdy cross-stitches, and leveling up her baking and cooking skills. She recently started dabbling in Dungeons and Dragons. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and her two rambunctious rescue dogs, Tucker and Dale.
