My name is Jenn and I am the owner and writer for Bound to Writing and I’m also a self-published young adult author (under the name Jennifer Leigh).
I started Bound to Writing in July 2017 in an effort to bring my writing to the world. You see, from a very young age, I loved to write. I mean, I wrote my first “book” in the second grade on Notepad. It was called “The Boy and the Girl.” It had hand-drawn illustrations (I’m not a drawer, believe me) and the cover had taped on magazine cut-outs of a boy and a girl. That means that I was serious! However, I was always told that it wasn’t something worth pursuing, so I left it on the back-burner.
After I graduated from The College of New Jersey in May 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance, I knew that it wasn’t right for me. Actually, I knew before graduating but I only had one class left. So I started this blog with only slight information that I had from a social media marketing class I had taken in my last semester.
I wanted an outlet for everyone to read my writing. It was the scariest and most nerve-wracking thing I’ve ever done to put my work out there. I had already published three books prior to starting this blog, but they weren’t available for public sale until recently. I also had a first draft complete for a fourth. You can check out all of the descriptions in My Books tab.
I have written all of my books during National Novel Writing Month. It is a wonderful organization that made my dreams become reality and I love them for it. You can learn about them here.
I am supported by my wonderful fiance (we’re getting married in 2019!), our cat (Apollo), and our guinea pigs (Pascal and Ryder). I’m also a huge Disney fan and my favorite Disney Princess is Rapunzel.
Since starting Bound to Writing, I have learned a lot about myself and what I want from life. I am happy with my decision to start this blog.
I love all of the people I have met and can’t wait to get to know you more! Drop by my comments or contact page and talk to me! I’d love to get to know you better!
