Jinny Alexander

Jinny was first published in Horse and Pony magazine at the age of ten. She’s striving to achieve equal accolades now she’s (allegedly) a grown-up. Jinny has had some publishing success with short story and flash competitions including the Bath Flash Fiction Award and Flash 500 among others. She has recently completed an MA in Creative Writing with the University of Hull, for which she was awarded a Distinction.

Jinny is currently working on more sequels to the Jess O’Malley Mystery series alongside developing a second cozy mystery series featuring the delightful Mrs Smith, a character based on her grandmother.

Jinny also teaches English as a foreign language to people all over the world and finds her students a constant source of inspiration for both life and stories. Her home, for now, is in rural Ireland, which she shares with her husband and far too many animals. Her two children have grown and flown, but return across the Irish Sea when they can. She quite likes to shut the door on them all and write.
