About this author

Jennifer lives at the base of a very tall mountain in Northern Utah with her husband, three children, and a naughty puppy. She loves the smell of rainy days, hot chocolate, and old books, preferably all at once. She is a former speech teacher, theater director, and enjoyed a brief but disastrous career as a door-to-door pollster. In her spare time, Jennifer tends to panic, wondering what she has forgotten to do that has allowed her any spare time.

936706_469032213189517_32115900_nHey – quick FYI for northern Utah types! I’ll be at the Bountiful Library on Saturday, July 12, from 2-4 pm. I’ll talk and sign books. Bring your own or the library will have some for sale! This is probably the only public event I’ll have in Utah until MARK OF THE THIEF releases, so if you can make it, that would be fantastic!


For those outside of northern Utah, I’ll begin posting my public sche...

“A person can be educated and still be stupid, and a wise man can have no education at all.”
Jennifer A. Nielsen, The False Prince

“Master Graves was incensed and said, as punishment for my disruption, I would have to write my letters an extra ten times that day.
"Ten times the better I'll know them, then." I said. "How strange that you should punish me by ensuring I come out more educated than Roden, who has tried to obey you.”
Jennifer A. Nielsen, The False Prince

“Hail His Majesty, the scourge of my life," Conner said to Roden and Tobias as he stomped up the stairs. "I fear the devils no longer, because I have the worst of them right here in my home!”
Jennifer A. Nielsen, The False Prince

Jeann (Happy Indulgence) Hi Jennifer,

Thank you for accepting my friend request. I absolutely loved the False Prince and have reviewed it on my blog here: http://happyindulgence.wordpress.com/...

Looking forward to reading Runaway Prince!


message 19: by Cindy

Cindy Chung OMG!!! i wish you could chose the date, if you could, i bet you would release the book a day or two after the books was published!!! Oh, and BTW, good luck editing!!!
another day closer to the book release!!


Jennifer Nielsen Cindy - the crazy thing about this business is the release date is set by the publisher. RUNAWAY KING has actually been finished for several months, but it takes time to do all the printing and distributing. I'm actually doing editing for book 3 right now. Crazy right?

Have a great day! (One day closer to the book's release...)


message 17: by Cindy

Cindy Chung gahh! whew!!! thx Jennifer!!!!! can u make it a little quicker? I will SOOOO enjoy it!!! I can't contain my excitment!!!!!!!!


Jennifer Nielsen Cindy -

No worries, THE RUNAWAY KING is out on March 1, so there's still a few more weeks. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as FALSE PRINCE.
