Jenny Dent


JENNY DENT is a Cumbrian-based writer of character-driven stories. She lives in a village not unrelated to the fictional Waterbeck and her work is heavily influenced by her love of nature and of the Cumbrian landscape and those who live and work there. 


A Death on the Home Front is Jenny’s first historical novel. She loves a good mystery, regardless of when or where it is set. She has been writing all her life, across a range of genres and forms. As Jo Allen, she is the author of a successful series of contemporary detective novels set in the Lake district and the Eden Valley.  When not writing, Jenny can be spotted cycling about north Cumbria or grumbling deep among the weeds in her allotment. In bad weather you’ll find her watching some kind of sport, or tending to her over-needy cat.
