Jenna's Short Stories & Writing Extracts - The Mill Owners... A trilogy




About Jenna Hines
      Christened Jennifer Ann. I write under my pet name of Jenna. Born and brought up in Liverpool I consider myself fortunate to have been a young teenager during the swinging sixties. Although an academic, I always knew that some of my talents lay in creativity.
      Certain that I inherited my writing skills from my paternal Grandfather, who was a wealthy mill owner in Scotland in the late eighteen nineties and who wrote several novels about the area where he lived in Dumfriesshire.
