Meet the Author: Jennie K. Brown

Jennie K. BrownJennie K. Brown is an English teacher by day, freelance magazine writer by night and MG/YA author by late night and weekend. When she’s not teaching, reading or writing, she can be found hanging out with her amazing family!

Jennie’s debut novel, POPPY MAYBERRY, THE MONDAY (Month9Books/Tantrum Books, August 2016) is the first in a midde grade series. It’s about a town where special powers are determined by the day of one’s birth and a girl (Poppy Mayberry) whose Monday telekinesis skills need a bit of work. Because of this, Poppy is sent to a remedial summer camp – Power Academy – where she is teamed up with her arch nemesis, a mind-reading Thursday Ellie Preston, to solve a mystery and combat the awful Headmistress Larriby and her equally awful side-kick Mr. Grimeley!
