J. F. Fox - Author


J. F. (Jenny) Fox was born, raised and educated in southeastern Virginia – that’s the bottom corner of the state that looks like a half-eaten tortilla chip. As a kid, she loved to visit the local library, despite the creepy portrait of Shakespeare near the water fountain. She decided she wanted to write books when she was nine and entered a writing contest suggested by her school librarian.#After college, Jenny moved to New York City to work in publishing. Since then, she has worked as both a children’s book editor and a writer. Her passion is creating books with a funny, slightly nerdy bent – often featuring introverts, underdogs or antiheroes – and stories for boys that speak to their interests without ignoring their emotions. Her picture book Friday Night Wrestlefest explores the fun of a family wrestling night and was named one of Parents magazine’s “Best Books of 2020.”|When she isn’t writing, Jenny enjoys working with the book committee at her younger son’s school to organize author visits and get more books into kids’ hands. She is also an advocate for public school librarians, which are no longer a given in our schools. Her home bookshelf is full of nonfiction stories about people’s lives and history. Jenny also loves to cook and to make up recipes. She lives with her husband and two sons in Brooklyn and upstate New York.|Facebook: @j.f.foxbooks Instagram: @j.f.foxbooks
