All About Me
Jenny Ford, an award-winning and multi-genre author has a narrative style that takes the reader on a journey through the eyes, ears and emotions of the main character of each book. Jenny inspires and empowers her readers by impacting their lives; making a difference with the written words in her books.
A very successful beauty therapist with her own business, Jenny’s life and career was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Jenny had no idea that she would end up becoming an author and says “No one was more surprised than me when I wrote my first book. I had no interest in writing at all, not even as a child. I literally just fell into it and it has now become my passion. I guess you could say I was Divinely Guided!”
The main focus of Jenny’s writing is positivity - she loves writing stories that make people smile and says “I am continually inspired and gain motivation by the different people that I meet every day, which drives me to be the best that I can.”
Jenny has written several books, one of which has been adapted into a play that was performed in front of a live audience. Jenny goes on to say “I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason and truly believe that without the knocks and challenges, I certainly wouldn't be where I am today!”
I am truly grateful and appreciate you for being part of my journey. Thank you.
I was never an A* student at school, actually, I was very rarely at school at all, I would walk through one gate and straight out the other, school bored me to tears. I left with no GCSE’s or O’levels as they were known back in the day, something I’m not proud of. My spelling and grammar suffered a lot, it has improved massively since then but I still do find it a challenge at times so it surprised the heck out of me when I started to write books.
Look at me now, I am a published author and have written several books in multiple genres – plays, children’s books, contemporary women’s fiction and nonfiction books (guided prayers and inspirational messages) – and have also created my own merchandise.
I have received two business awards in two consecutive years 2017-2018 from The Business Community St Albans in Hertfordshire where I live in the UK. In 2018 I was nominated for a Prestigious Global Award by The Authors Academy for my fiction book Prisoner Within, and in 2019 I received a Gold Award from The Janey Loves Platinum Awards for my children’s dyslexia friendly story colouring book Joshua and the Magical Unicorn.
And, in 2020 I have been awarded the Gold Award for my book "The Loss of a Child ~ My Story" about the loss of my daughter Catriona.
I am now a multi-award-winning international bestselling author. If only my teachers could see me now!
What I am trying to say is no matter what background you are from, if you were rubbish at school or have no qualifications you can do anything that your heart desires. I was given another chance to inspire, to make a difference, and help bring emotional healing through the power of the written word. Something I am proud to say that I have achieved.
