Though she grew up on a working cattle ranch, it's fantasy and sci-fi that shine Jen Crane's saddle. Dragging her back to reality after reading The Princess Bride was a lost cause. She writes speculative fiction and fantasy novels.
Jen's as-yet unpublished novel, Sunscorched, received the 2017 Rosemary Award for excellence in young adult fiction.

Book 2 in Jen's fantasy romance series, Descended of Dragons, was selected by iTunes/iBooks as "Our Pick" in fantasy/sci-fi.
Jen has a master’s degree and solid work histories in government and non-profit administration. But just in the nick of time she pronounced life <i>too real</i> for nonfiction. She now creates endearing characters and alternate realms filled with adventure, magic, and love.
Jen is happily living out her dream in The South with her husband and three children, striking that delicate balance between inspiration and frustration.
