Jenny Bond has worked as a teacher, journalist, copywriter and researcher. Her non-fiction titles have been published in Australia and the USA. It was writing one about the stories behind great novels that led Jenny to write her own first novel, Perfect North. Her second novel, The President's Lunch, again incorporates real-life figures with fictional ones, a technique that allows her to imaginatively interpret historical events. While researching The President's Lunch, Jenny spent two months in Washington D.C. visiting the places where the Roosevelts lived and worked. She lives with her husband and children in Canberra, Australia's capital.
