My name is Jennie Ivins. I’m a mom and a writer. I live in Central New Jersey with my amazing husband and our three autistic boys (one set of twins & one singleton).
I love to create, and try to make art a part of every aspect of my life. I love writing, drawing, sculpting, and sewing. My husband and I are geeks and I’m pretty much surrounded by them, so science, history, and technology are also some of my favorite subjects.
Right now I’m writing my first fantasy series, the Fading Marks Cycle. I’m currently shopping the first book to agents and am more than halfway through the first draft of the second. I’m also working on a YA novel about a boy that finds dragons. You can find out more about my books by clicking the My Books tab above. I also have some short stories you can read in the Short Stories tab.
I’m also the Editor for Fantasy-Faction.com. I sometimes write book reviews and articles for the site as well. You can check out my reviews clicking the Book Reviews tab above. Last year we put out our first anthology, The Fantasy-Faction Anthology. You can read more about it by clicking The Fantasy-Faction Anthology tab.
So, what is this site for? Part of it is for me to vent about my writing and my life in general. The other part is to hopefully help other people with theirs, or at least to encourage them to keep going through whatever challenges they have to overcome.

I love to talk so feel free to drop me a tweet or an email. Happy Writing! 🙂
