Short biography
New York Times Bestselling author, Jennifer Nielsen, was born and raised in northern Utah, where she still lives today with her family, a dog that won’t play fetch, and a cat that hallucinates. She loves chocolate, old books, and lazy days in the mountains.

New York Times

Jennifer has won multiple awards including the Sydney Taylor Notable Book Award, multiple Whitney Awards, and several state book awards. Also, she once won a garden rototiller, though that’s probably not relevant here.[from the website, retrieves 3/16/2021)
