Jenny Barden has had a love of history ever since an encounter in infancy with a suit of armour at Tamworth Castle. Training as an artist, followed by a career as a city solicitor, did little to help displace her early dream of becoming a knight. Impelled by a fascination with the Age of Discovery, she has travelled widely throughout the Americas, and much of the inspiration for her first two novels has come from retracing the steps of early adventurers in the New World.
Jenny has four children and now lives on a farm in Dorset with her long suffering husband and an ever increasing assortment of animals.
