Born and raised in Florida, Jennings spent her early years reading anything she could get her hands on, when she wasn't spending time in and on the water. She won a prize in the 6th grade for her science fiction stories.
Jennings attended the University of Tampa, graduating with a B.A. in Political Science, and almost enough credits for B.A.s in both English and History. She attended graduate school at the University of West Florida, studying Psychology. She spent time over the years doing various kinds of business writing, editing, and teaching writing, but mostly having and raising her family, homeschooling her children, owning and running a business with her husband, and starting a non-profit.
Thanks to a crazy idea called NaNoWriMo, Jennings got back into creative writing in 2011 and has published multiple works of fiction. She is also interested in instructional non-fiction, and has several books in the works. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, also a writer, and two children, and travels extensively with her family, and with her non-profit in Uganda and Andros.
