Jennie Marsland is a teacher, an amateur musician and watercolor artist and, for over thirty years, a writer. She fell in love with words at a very early age and the affair has been life-long. She enjoys writing childrens fiction, poetry and lyrics as well as romance.
With a background in Animal Science and molecular biology, Jennie has been a lab technician and a science teacher at different times in her life. She is now pursuing her love of language as an ESL teacher, meeting people from all over the world and helping them learn to communicate in English. She finds it as rewarding in its own way as penning novels.
Jennie has always loved books that take her back to an earlier time. Glimpses of the past spark her imagination. Perhaps theres an archaeologist buried in her somewhere. Everyone has a story, and its the stories of ordinary people that affect her the most.
Jennie developed a soft spot for Westerns by reading her fathers collection of Louis LAmour and Zane Grey novels as she grew up. She thinks they contain everything a girl or a woman could wanthandsome, rugged heroes, spirited heroines and horses, but shes planning on trying her hand at other genres as well. So many stories, so little time.
She finds her inspiration in family stories passed down from her parents and grandparents, and in the beauty of Nova Scotias landscape. When shes not writing or working she gardens, plays guitar and spends time with her husband, two cantankerous elderly cats and the most spoiled dog on earth.
