Jenna Glass wrote her first book - an "autobiography" - when she was in the fifth grade. She began writing in earnest while in college and proceeded to collect a dizzying array of rejections for her first seventeen novels. Nevertheless, she persisted, and her eighteenth novel became her first commercial sale. Within a few years, Glass became a full-time writer and has never looked back. She has published more than twenty novels under various names. The Women's War marks her first foray into epic fantasy.
