Jenn Reese (Author)

Jenn got started writing science fiction and fantasy for the adult market and has published numerous stories in places such as The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and the World Fantasy Award-winning anthology Paper Cities. Her first adult novel, Jade Tiger, was the lead title for the Juno Books imprint in 2007. Since then, Jenn had returned to middle grade novels, her very first love. She has just completed her Above World trilogy for Candlewick, a series that combines science fiction, mythology, and martial arts. The first book was a finalist for the 2012 Andre Norton Award.

When she's not writing novels, Jenn works as a freelance graphic designer specializing in ebook covers, websites, and t-shirts. Her interests include consuming media (TV shows, movies, video games, and comics), studying martial arts, and learning to knit. Jenn lives in Portland with her partner and three goofy cats.
