Jenni Fletcher grew up in Scotland and Somerset and now lives in Yorkshire with her husband, two children and one extremely hairy and vocal Shetland Sheepdog.

She studied English at Cambridge University before doing a PhD at Hull, working in a variety of administrative jobs while trying to finish her first book, which was rejected. Thinking there must have been some mistake, she then wrote another, which was fortunately accepted by Harlequin Mills & Boon. 

She spends a large part of her day obsessing about things like the Oxford comma and whether she uses exclamation marks too much (she does!) while getting distracted by Twitter. The rest of the time she drinks too much caffeine, eats too much chocolate, and teaches undergraduate creative writing. She has been nominated for 4 RoNA awards (for Historical and Short Fiction), and won the Libertà Award for Short Romantic Fiction in 2020. Her favourite Jane Austen novel is Persuasion and her favourite Brontë is Anne. If she had to choose a romantic hero it would be John Thornton, but Mr Darcy comes a close second.
