Jennifer Pickup

Jennifer Pickup is a secondary school English teacher turned primary school teacher turned Nursery Manager and Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator with a love of telling stories and weaving rhymes. She lives in Wiltshire with her Chihuahua-cross rescue dog and when she isn't working she can be found dog-walking, horse-riding her beloved dressage horse, dressage judging, or glued to her laptop, writing. A lot of her work can be found on - this writing community offered her valuable feedback and support over the years and was instrumental in getting her fist novel published through Unbound. Unbelievable is her first novel - -
