Read information about the authorJenny Bond is an author of historical fiction whose novels have been published in Australia, New Zealand and Europe and whose non-fiction titles have been published in Australia and the USA.
Jenny, an ex English teacher and an accomplished copywriter and researcher, is currently working on her third novel, expected to be finished early in 2015.
Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Jenny earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Diploma of Education at Macquarie University. Prior to her reinvention as a writer, she held the position of Head of English at Eaton House The Manor in London’s Clapham Common. Jenny also taught English and Drama for eight years at a selective high school in Sydney.
"I have not spent even one day without a book by my side, so slipping from the act of reading into the act of writing didn't actually seem that much of a change," she says. "I get a little bit lost in the research and writing process and now I couldn't actually imagine life without it. The characters are fascinating to live with and sometimes it can be difficult to finally admit the book is finished, to actually send the manuscript away to the publisher."
Jenny has long been a fan of great historical fiction writers such as Hilary Mantel but also spends quality time with books by authors from other genres such as Margaret Atwood, Oscar Wilde, Peter Carey, Tim Winton, J.K. Rowling, Toni Morrison, Ian McEwan, Jane Austen, John Irving and E. Annie Proulx.
Jenny enjoys keeping fit and loves to travel. She lives with her husband in Canberra where they enjoy spending time with their two young sons and their very lively dog.
