Author Biography

Jenny lives in Wisconsin with her husband, Ken, and their pet Yorkie, Ruby. She is also a mom and loves being a grandma. She enjoys many creative pursuits but finds writing the most fulfilling.

Spending many years as a librarian in a local public library, Jenny recently switched to using her skills as a floral designer in a retail flower shop. She is now retired from work due to disability. Her education background stems from psychology, music, and cultural missions.

All of Jenny’s books have earned five-star reviews from Readers’ Favorite, a book review and award contest company. She holds membership in the: Midwest Independent Booksellers Association, Wisconsin Writers Association, Christian Indie Publishing Association, and Independent Book Publishers Association.

Jenny’s favorite place to relax is by the western shore of Lake Superior, where her novel series, By The Light of the Moon, is set.

She deems a cup of tea and a good book an essential part of every day. When not writing, Jenny can be found reading, tending to her many houseplants, or piecing quilt blocks at her sewing machine.

Her new historical fiction, four-part series entitled, Sheltering Trees, is set in the area Jenny grew up in, where she currently lives, and places along Minnesota’s Northern Shore, where she loves to visit. She is currently writing a four-part novella series entitled: Botanical Seasons and a three-part fantasy series entitled: Retold Fairy Tales.

Violet has been a widow for the last year but is still angry and looking for revenge for Roger’s death. She owns a flower shop and grows most of her own flowers. New people have come into Violet’s life as well as an old school friend and all have an impact on her. Holly and her Uncle Devon come in to plan for her upcoming wedding but Holly ends up working in the flower shop and becoming good friends with Violet. Devon finds himself falling in love with Violet and Frankie, her old friend and now a journalist, tries to solve the answer to how Roger died. He also has a romantic interest in Violet. Webster is the young man living next door who is just like a son to Violet and helps out at the store and caring for the greenhouses and flowers. He too plays a part in Violet’s future. God is ever-present, enabling Violet to give him her worries and pray for answers.

Violet’s Vow is a sweet look back into the 1890s of loss, love, and life. I really enjoyed reading Violet’s Vow. Violet was such a sweet and loving lady that it was impossible not to feel like she was your new best friend and one that you wanted only good things for. Author Jenny Knipfer made the 1890s come alive; the characters all seem real and the plot so very believable. Violet’s Vow would be a perfect Hallmark Movie. It is a must-read for all romantics, Victorian-era historical fiction lovers, and anyone who just enjoys a good book!
