Jenny Brown

Goodreads Author




Member Since
August 2010

Jenny Brown studied history in graduate school. Her first professional sale as a writer was a biographical piece about Louisa May Alcott’s childhood. Years later, her favorite hobby continues to be reading biographies of people who lived in the 18th and 19th centuries. She has earned her living in many different ways: performing as a singer-songwriter in Western Massachusetts and Nashville, writing nonfiction, and, for the past twenty-four years, running a successful small press. She lives in rural Western Massachusetts.

Jenny's characters are often outcasts or rebels. Her heroes have a long way to go before they become the loving men her heroines deserve. Her heroines are strong, adventurous women who take control of their own fate but must

I have a new website, new blog, and two new historical romances!

If you were a fan of the books I published in the early 2010s you'll be glad to know that after a long hiatus, I have surfaced again and am publishing two brand new works of quirky historical romance to delight you.

A brilliantly written biography. I came away realizing that it is Lady Byron who should be admired as an early feminist pioneer rather than her daughter. Put in a position of financial independence she did a great deal to set up schools devoted to te ...more

“Until we find out who was born this time around, it seems irrelevant to seek earlier identities. I have heard many people speak of who they believe they were in previous incarnations, but they seem to have very little idea of who they are in this one. . . . Let’s take one life at a time. Perhaps the best way to do that is to live as though there were no afterlife or reincarnation. To live as though this moment was all that was allotted. (132)”
