Jennifer Riley Photography
I started writing after stepping away from my career as a research psychologist to be with my kids. I had written plenty of scientific stuff, and always assumed I had to be either scientific or creative – but not both.
Then I attended a dear friend’s creative writing group and fell in love with it. I had a story in my head – about the World War II evacuation of London – and squirreled myself away in my studio while my kids were in school. For at least a hundred pages, I didn’t even tell my family I was doing it, but when we’d had pizza for a suspicious number of dinners, I finally fessed up.
I love writing for the pure, simple, solitary pleasure of it. I love spending a year or more with characters who come to feel like family.
Thank you for stopping by... I'm so glad you're here!
