Jen Storer grew up in a small country town in the Wimmera. She began her working life as a nurse. In the 1990s she returned to study, graduating from Monash University with first class honours in Literature. She has written many books for children including the best-selling Truly Tan series and the acclaimed gothic fantasy, Tensy Farlow and the Home for Mislaid Children. Quincy Jordan, book one of the Crystal Bay Girls, is out now. Romy Bright will follow in August 2014. Jen lives in Melbourne, Australia.

I have been a nurse, a veterinary nurse, a nanny, a public servant, a children’s book editor and a project manager in children’s publishing.
Courage in the face of adversity, family dynamics, sibling rivalry, loneliness. I am particularly interested in writing about strong, independent girls. I enjoy blending humour and horror.
