ABOUT JENNIFER DERRICK

  • I became a writer at the age of six when my parents bought me a child’s typewriter for Christmas and agreed to pay me a penny per page for any stories I churned out. When I got older, I realized that I needed to make (much) more money from my writing so I first turned to the
    corporate world (where I learned that I am spectacularly unsuited to cubicle life) and ultimately to freelancing where I now write everything from technical manuals to articles on personal finance and European-style board games.

    My writing career came full circle when Clean Teen Publishing accepted Broken Fate, my first YA novel. By my calculations, my parents owe me about $3.00 for that book.

    I live in NC and can often be found reading anything I can get my hands on, playing board games, watching sports, camping, running marathons, and playing with my dog. 

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • “Why should you believe your eyes? You were given eyes to see with, not to believe with. Your eyes can see the mirage, the hallucination as easily as the actual scenery.”
