At the age of eleven she became one of only two girls in an otherwise all-boys school, where she remained for the next five years being rubbish at sport and excelling at science.
She left at the beginning of sixth form to go to a more conventional mixed college, becoming involved with a creative group of people who between them wrote plays, scripts, books and poetry. She also took an interest in radio production, becoming one of the driving forces behind the school radio project. Later she would go on to use this experience as the basis for a successful radio comedy programme. She studied Philosophy at Durham University between 1997 and 2000, helping to run the student radio station and also meeting her future partner.
After graduation, Jennifer moved on to work in broadcasting and journalism, working both as a radio presenter for a string of local commercial and community radio stations as well as an investigative journalist. In 2005 this all came to an end as she decided to pursue a writing career in earnest that had begun in 2002 with the publication of her first book, Homo Superior, under a pseudonym.
Three further books followed in 2006 followed by another in 2007, and her most recent work in 2011. She has also penned a large number of short stories for magazines and acts as co-writer and ideas consultant for her partner’s comics: All over the House and The Life of Nob T. Mouse.
Currently she lives in Bolton and continues to work on her books. Occasionally she is known to work as a model, and is also a keen dinghy restorer and sailor.
