About Jennifer

Finally, a good hair day.

Jennifer Griffith is the USA Today bestselling, twice Swoony Award-winning author of over fifty novels, both traditionally and independently published. She received a degree in English/Technical Writing and Japanese from Utah State University, and worked as a writer for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives before becoming a mother and switching to writing Hallmark-like Christmas novels and romantic comedies from home.

Jennifer has written for newspaper, her work appearing locally as well as in The Chicago Tribune and Meridian. Her book Big in Japan has been selected for both high school and college curriculum and has been optioned for film. She’s been a presenter at many workshops and conferences, including Salt Lake City FanX and the ANWA Conference. She and her husband Gary have five brilliant and hilarious children  who don’t care if she’s a writer; they just call her Mom.

Jennifer has no plans to write the Great American Novel. She’d rather compose what someone would read on a rainy afternoon with a cup of cocoa, or sitting on a beach chair while the waves crash. Light, frothy, gone. She calls her writing Cotton Candy for the Soul.
