My hobbies include writing, running, urban exploring and photography. I also enjoy watching my teen ninja sons at their many sporting events...


Jennifer L. Hawes


Jennifer was born in Madison, Wisconsin, but  grew up in Illinois where she attended private schools most of her life. Her writing career began in the third grade writing sentences on the chalkboard: I will behave in class. 


In college she took a creative writing class, learned to eavesdrop on people's conversations and decided she wanted to become a writer someday.


Jennifer lives with her family in Hannibal, Missouri, Mark Twain's boyhood hometown. She is a former fifth grade teacher.  When she's not writing, she's raising her teen sons and taking notes for her next book.
