I've been writing since my best friend changed schools when I was twelve and I needed another way to exercise my imagination.

In the years since, I've never stopped. I write plays, films, poetry, and prose. My work has appeared in literary magazines across North America, and I have read live at events almost from coast to coast.

My series BLOOD & MAGIC, featuring the young heroine Maggie Stuart, is taking off across the continent, and I now spent more time at comicons and writing events than I do anywhere else, which is about the best thing that's ever happened to me! The first two books of the series are THE LAST RITE and THE RED RING, and you can read excerpts and find out more at http://www.jenfrankel.com/novels. Or read THE LAST RITE right here on Wattpad, serialized just for you!

I'll be posting stories and poems here, and you'll be able to read excerpts from what I'm working on as well as short stories currently being edited for a new collection, MORE FERAL TALES.
