Jenna has spent most of her life in the capital, leaving only to complete a BA in English Literature at Cambridge University and, more recently, to spend three months in New York City just to make sure it wasn’t any better than London.
Jenna likes reading, cooking and eating and enjoys nothing more than when these activities are combined. When not concerned with Shepherd's Pie and the great American novel her impressively sized family take up a great deal of her time (mostly in a nice way).
