I’m Jennifer Page, I live in West Yorkshire and I write cosy romcom novels.
I was 8 when I wrote my first novel. It was called Natureland and was about ponies, because I was obsessed with ponies until I discovered boys. I wrote Natureland in a school exercise book, covered it with sticky back plastic in true Blue Peter style and gave it to my mum to send to Puffin Books, absolutely convinced that they’d want to publish it.
45 years later, and my first ‘proper’ novel, The Little Board Game Café, is finally being published.
During those 45 years, I learnt to speak Dutch, taught music in various primary schools, directed a few operas, produced several episodes of BBC Songs of Praise and lived on a narrowboat.
I’m also happy to say that many, many years after giving up on ponies because I had discovered boys, I have finally settled down with the right one. His name is Hermi and we live in an old Yorkshire farmhouse near Hebden Bridge with his very large collection of board games. You can probably see where the inspiration for The Little Board Games Café comes from now!
When I’m not writing and playing board games, I love to cook – though I’m not claiming to be any good at it – and I enjoy caravan holidays and walking in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
