My name is Jenn Falls. I grew up in North Carolina, so I consider myself a Southern girl. Tar Heels – I need not say more about my first love. I’ve been privileged enough to live all over the United States and overseas through my husband’s job with the Navy, which broadens my world view. I worked hard to become a teacher and then to earn my MA in English. While I won’t ever close the door on teaching, it’s time to open the door of possibilities to writing the novels that have been swimming in my head for years.
My main focus in writing is in the sci-fi and fantasy genres. My current “Works In Progress” are in contemporary urban fantasy for adults, although I intend to publish in middle-grade and young adult levels. I guess I write what I mainly read. My biggest influences include J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Joss Whedon (I know the last is not an author, but he truly is an inspiration).
Other interests include reading books (I love critiquing when they are made into films), playing piano (since I was 3), and being gaga for all things zombies. I like participating in a writing community both in person and online. Find me on Twitter @jrfalls.
