Message From Author: Hello. My name is Jen Selinsky, and I have been a writer for most of my life. As a child, I was very imaginative and was always making up stories. Occasionally, I had an idea that I liked so much that it had to be put down on paper.
Room for expansion came when I was fifteen years old, as I started reading and writing more avidly. Ever since I was in high school, it has been a dream of mine to publish and sell my books.
Several years later, that dream has come true! My catalog is ever-expanding, as I am writing and publishing new material all the time. A few of my poems have been included on websites, and I recently had an article published in the journal “Indiana Libraries.” I am an avid writer who takes her craft very seriously, and I am delighted to share my work with you! Please feel free to browse my titles. There is something here for everyone.
