Episode #39 – Juggling Life and Writing with Jenni James


Jenni is a mom of seven rambunctious children (including teenagers!). They currently live in New Mexico and a few years ago moved back to the States after living 9 awesome years in the Azores Islands of Portugal and England! Her kids love the USA!

When not writing up a storm, she enjoys reading, acting, portrait painting, directing plays, cooking, planning elaborate parties and chasing her kids around the house. She also finds time to practice awesome ninja skills and expert pirating techniques—she secretly dream of becoming a master at both.

She’s been painting portraits professionally since 2002.


She’s been a professional children’s theater director/playwright since 2000.

YAY! Thank you guys!!! It was so much fun doing the interview with you. I wanted to clarify one thing... At the beginning of the interview I say I never wanted to be an author... I didn't. It's true. At the end I was saying how I'd always wanted to be an author... which, got jumbled in what I was trying to say.. so I thought I'd explain: I didn't know it, but I'd always wanted to be one--it was my dream since I was very little to have a voice and make a difference. The author platform is what allowed that to happen. So exciting. :) Thank you again!!! You guys rock! :D
