Jenny Bayliss lives in a small seaside town in Kent with her husband; their children having left home for big adventures. She went back into education when she was thirty-nine and gained a first class degree in Creative and Professional Writing, from Canterbury Christ Church University. Jenny likes long walks along the seafront and baking days; especially when it's cold outside. She is a stationery obsessed coffee lover, who doesn't believe in saving things for best and shamelessly wears party dresses to the supermarket. The Twelve Dates of Christmas is Jenny's first novel.
