ABOUT ME


My name is Jenna Brandt and I am an award-winning, international best-selling author of sweet inspiring contemporary and historical fiction with  elements of romance, suspense and faith. 

I have been an avid reader since I could hold a book and started writing stories almost as early. I have been published in several newspapers and magazines as well as edited for multiple papers. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in English from Bethany College and was the Editor-in-Chief of my college newspaper. I'm a contributor and curator for the Novel PASTime Website and my first Blog was published on Yahoo Parenting and The Grief Toolbox as well as featured on the ABC News and Good Morning America websites. I'm also an active member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) Association.

Writing is my passion but I also enjoy cooking, watching lots of movies while I write, and spending time with my three young daughters and husband who inspire lots of my characters. I enjoy living in the Central Valley of California and spending summers on the Central Coast. I am also active in my local church where I serve on the first impressions team and in the crisis care ministry.
