My name is Jennie Arnold and I have always been a writer. I just did not know it when I worked as a teacher, a banker, and a pizza cook. I have no plans to stop writing and see no reason to stop believing in imaginary friends.
My name is Jennie Arnold and I have always been a writer. I just did not know it when I w This story started when I was a child (every story I have ever written began when I was a child.) because my sister would not let me be the hero when we played. She wanted to be the hero and she was older. Logic like that makes sense only to the young. I figured that a story should have more than one hero. The bad guy has minions so the good guys should be a team too! My sister didn’t always agree but I have always been more stubborn than she. Each story needed a host of characters. As I grew the stories got more complex and often needed more characters.
Each novel got its start in my playroom and jungle gym but the stories stayed with me in college, when I started writing them down. Short stories were sent to different children's magazines and some were published but most found their way into my desk drawers. I added to the short stories and ended up with a 60,000-word novel!
I hope to continue adding to the short stories from my playroom and writing many more novels.
