ABOUT JENNIFER MACLEOD

  • Author of many self-published books for kids, and of the Write Kids’ Books blog.

    I write for a living: I’m a journalist, blogger, translator, marketing copywriter, and lots of other things.  In my precious spare time… I write kids’ books.  Many have Jewish themes, but others are for a general audience.  My picture book Yossi and the Monkeys was published in 2017 by Kar-Ben, a division of Lerner.  Another picture book is forthcoming from Apples & Honey, a division of Behrman House.  I’ve self-published over a dozen books for children and adults and my writing has appeared in Chicken Soup for the Mother-Daughter Soul, along with numerous newspapers, magazines, and literary journals.

    Married and mom to 4 terrific kids (2 big, 2 little).
