Jenny Valentine moved house every two years when she was growing up. She has just moved house again, probably not for the last time. She worked in a wholefood shop in Primrose Hill for fifteen years where she met many extraordinary people and sold more organic loaves than there are words in her first novel. She has also worked as a teaching assistant and a jewellery maker. She studied English Literature at Goldsmiths College, which almost put her off reading but not quite.Jenny is married to a singer/songwriter and has two children.
In 2007, Jenny won the Guardian Prize for Children’s Fiction with her debut novel FINDING VIOLET PARK. Her second novel, BROKEN SOUP, was published in 2008.
In 2009 Jenny was chosen as a World Book Day contributor and wrote the short story TEN STATIONS, which featured some of the characters from FINDING VIOLET PARK. Her third teenage novel, THE ANT COLONY was also published.
Later the same year, she published her first book for younger readers, IGGY AND ME, short stories featuring the antics of two sisters.
One of the greatest YA voices of her generation.
