About the Speaker
Award-winning author and speaker Jenny L. Cote, who is likened to C. S. Lewis by readers and book reviewers alike, speaks on history and creative writing to schools, universities and conferences around the world. Jenny has a passion for making history fun for kids of all ages, including adults. Her lengthy historical fiction novels (450-650 pages) incorporate a team of talking animals that work behind the scenes to help humans in pivotal points of history, making solidly researched history come alive in a fun, refreshing way. Her love for research has taken her to most Revolutionary sites in the U.S., to London (with unprecedented access to Handel House Museum to write in Handel’s composing room), Oxford (to stay in the home of C. S. Lewis, ‘the Kilns’, and interview Lewis’ secretary, Walter Hooper at the Inklings’ famed The Eagle and Child Pub), Paris, Normandy, Rome, Israel, and Egypt. She partnered with the National Park Service to produce Epic Patriot Camp, a summer writing camp at Revolutionary parks to excite kids about history, research and writing. Jenny’s books are available online and in stores around the world, as well as in e-book and audio (book one) formats. Jenny has been featured by FOX NEWS on Fox & Friends and local Fox Affiliates, as well as numerous Op-Ed pieces on FoxNews.com. She has also been interviewed by nationally syndicated radio and print media, as well as international publications. Jenny's first novel, The Ark, the Reed, and the Fire Cloud is currently in pre-production for an animated feature film with an anticipated theatrical release in Christmas 2022. Jenny holds two marketing degrees from the University of Georgia and Georgia State University. A Virginia native, Jenny now lives in Roswell, Georgia with her family.
