The works below are just a small sample of Jennie's published work.

CRAFTING THE CHARACTER ARC, TEXTBOOK

PUBLISHED BY BEATING WINDWARD PRESS

Many writers believe once they have their basic plot points in place, their stories are destined to succeed. But many narratives fall flat between those plot points and lose their audience before the big finish. Engaging the audience and moving the story forward in every scene is the responsibility of the characters, not the plot. But while many books on the craft of writing state that characters need to be three dimensional and change, a beginning writer isn’t always sure how to turn these rather abstract ideas into concrete craft on the page.

Crafting the Character Arc offers a practical guide to character creation and development by expanding upon the concept of the character arc and creating a step-by-step guide for writers to ensure that their characters are dynamic and engaging. Using narrative examples from multiple platforms, including novels, films and games, this is the essential guide for helping writers create an active and well-defined character arc.

THE RECKONING, SHORT FICTION

PUBLISHED BY BAD APPLE ZINE

Traditions shape our reality in the present- they are a cultural touchstone that links us to the ancestral experience.  But if we lose the truth of our traditions, we fall out of touch and allow ourselves to be manipulated by those in power to live our lives in a way that suits them.  This story is one girl’s journey to the truth: a brave undertaking in a world where a lie can get you eaten up whole.

CONDOMS AND HOT TUBS DON'T MIX: AN ANTHOLOGY OF AWKWARD SEXCAPADES

PUBLISHED BY BEATING WINDWARD PRESS

Sex isn't always the romantic experiences we read about in novels or see in the movies. Oftentimes is silly or messy or awkward. This collection of fiction, nonfiction and poetry seeks to look at the funny and sometimes heartbreaking encounters that are human sexual experiences.
