• Jennifer Bower is the illustrator of the forthcoming picture book, THE FIRST NOTES OF SPRING (Bloomsbury, Spring 2023) and THE FUNNIEST MAN IN BASEBALL: THE TRUE STORY OF MAX PATKIN (Clarion, 2018). She grew up on a steady diet of classic cartoons and mid-century picture books, many of which still bear her bite marks. Twenty years after picking up her first crayon, she earned a BFA degree. 

    Her artwork has been featured in Highlights Magazine for Children, Guide Magazine, Cantata Learning and Franciscan Media/Servant Publishing. Jennifer lives in North Carolina with her herd of fur babies, where she leads the monthly SCBWI-Carolinas QCKidLit critique group and volunteers at Misty Meadows Mitey Riders therapeutic riding program. She is the proud mom to one kick-ass college kid!!! 


  • Vintage vibe with a twist.

    In addition to her own author-illustrator work, Jennifer is open to illustration projects for picture books and more. She is represented by Jennifer March Soloway, Associate Agent, ANDREA BROWN LITERARY AGENCY. All inquiries should be directed to soloway@andreabrownlit.com
