Hello!  Welcome to my website.

I am so glad you are here! My name is Jennifer Conklin, and I am a first-time published author. My debut novel Pretend is a YA contemporary romance about a girl running from her past, only to find her future. I have also developed a children’s book series called The Adventure Above Series about a little girl and her dinosaur best friend. There are three stories currently, with the possibility of more. The first book, She Who Walks Above The Trees is available NOW on Amazon!

In addition to being an author, I am also a special education teacher. I have been teaching littles for many years, and although it can be a challenging career, it is also rewarding. I genuinely love teaching and being able to make a difference. To watch their faces light up when they accomplish their goals brings me such joy. Each and every student is unique, amazing, and will always hold a little piece of my heart.

As you can guess, I love to write, read, watch tv & movies. I am young at heart and have always loved a good love story!! I live in New York with my husband, our younger son, who is finishing his last year in college, and two sweet dogs. Our older son and his wife live nearby which makes me a very happy momma. :)
