Jenny L. Cote


Award-winning author and speaker Jenny L. Cote, who developed an early passion for God, history, and young people, beautifully blends these three passions in her two fantasy fiction series, The Amazing Tales of Max and Liz® and Epic Order of the Seven®. Likened to C. S. Lewis by readers and book reviewers alike, she speaks on creative writing to schools, universities and conferences around the world. Jenny has a passion for making history fun for kids of all ages, instilling in them a desire to discover their part in HIStory. 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 multiple e-book formats. Jenny holds two marketing degrees from the University of Georgia and Georgia State University. A Virginia native, Jenny now lives in Roswell, Georgia.

Award-winning author Jenny L. Cote opens up the world of creative writing for students of all ages and reading levels through fun,
highly interactive workshops. Students are certain to laugh, be surprised, and have fun learning (without realizing it!) Above all
students will be inspired to write colorful, creative stories and will want to read. Jenny has appeared to thousands of students at
lower, middle, high school and universities in the US and abroad. Jenny patterns her workshops after specific books she has written,
showing students exactly how she crafts her books, from research to character development to imagery. It gives students real
hands-on tools used by an author, with a behind the scenes look at how a book comes together, and what fun it can be. Surprising
grand entrances, fun props, and humorous questions keep students engaged from the first minute, with smiles and hands raised to
be chosen to do the next fun thing! For more information, testimonials, pictures and videos from workshops, please Jenny at or visit
