Jennifer Swanson

Award winning author of over 25 nonfiction and fiction books for children

My Life as a WIP (Work in Progress)

You want to write. Great. Now what? What’s the best way to get into the business? How can you figure out what type of writing you are passionate about? And how do get that elusive contract?

Come hear Jennifer Swanson talk about her circuitous and somewhat unexpected path to working with some of the biggest publishers in the business. She will discuss the ups and downs of this often-crazy business and how every path to publication is a good one!  Jennifer’s presentation at the FAPA Annual Conference will be on Saturday, August 5, 2017.

Jennifer Swanson is the award-winning author of over 25 nonfiction and fiction books for children. Her books in the “How Things Work” series by The Child’s World were named to the 2012 Booklist’s Top 10 Books for Youth. Top reviews include a starred review in Booklist, recommended reviews from School Librarians Workshop, Library Media Connection, and a Nerdy Book Club Award.

Jennifer’s passion for science resonates in in all her books but especially, BRAIN GAMES (NGKids) which received a Eureka! Honor Award from the California Reading Association and SUPER GEAR: Nanotechnology and Sports Team Up (Charlesbridge) which was named both a Best STEM book of 2017 and an Outstanding Trade Book 2017 by the National Science Teacher Association.
