- Me, Myself, and I
- Jenny Valentine moved house every two years when she was growing up. She worked in a wholefood shop in Primrose Hill for fifteen years where she met many extraordinary people – including the inspiration for character Violet Park – and sold more organic loaves than there are words in her first novel. She has also worked as a teaching assistant and a jewellery maker. She studied English Literature at Goldsmith’s College, which almost put her off reading but not quite.
Jenny is married to a singer/songwriter and has two children. She lives in Hay on Wye, where she runs another wholefood shop, hoping to find the inspiration for many more novels. Finding Violet Park, winner of the Guardian Fiction Prize, was published in January 2007, followed by Broken Soup In January 2008. The Ant Colony, availbale now, is her third teen novel.

- Broken Soup
- When the good-looking boy with the American accent presses the dropped negative into Rowan's hand, she's sure it's all a big mistake. But next moment he's gone, lost in the crowd of bustling shoppers. And she can't afford to lose her place in the checkout queue – after all, if she doesn't take the groceries home, nobody else will.
Rowan has more responsibilities than most girls her age. These days, she pretty much looks after her little sister single-handedly – which doesn't leave much time for friends or fun. So when she finds out that Bee from school saw the whole thing, it piques her curiosity. Who was the boy? Why was he so insistent that the negative belonged to Rowan?
