About the Author

With her degree in History and Secondary Education, Jennifer Jenkins had every intention of teaching teens to love George Washington, the Napoleonic Wars, and Ancient Sparta...until the writing began. She is the author of the NAMELESS Trilogy and co-founder of Teen Author Boot Camp, a federal non-profit organization dedicated to promoting teen literacy and authorship. She divides her free time between teaching summer camps and adult writing classes for Utah Valley University, writing music, taking spontaneous trips, researching random events from the past, and fostering her adrenaline junkie addictions.
