Jennifer Trafton

American

Jennifer Trafton began writing seriously at the age of ten. She holds degrees from Wake Forest University and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with further graduate work in religion, history, and literature at Duke University. She also served for four years as managing editor of a history magazine.

In 2010, with the publication of her first novel, The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic (Dial Books for Young Readers), Trafton returned to her first love: children’s fiction. Her novel received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal and was a nominee for Tennessee's Volunteer State Book Award and the National Homeschool Book Award.

Her second novel, Henry and the Chalk Dragon, arose from her lifelong love of drawing and her personal quest for the courage to be an artist. The book received starred reviews in Booklist and School Library Journal, was nominated for a Cybils Award, and was named a runner-up for WORLD Magazine's Children's Book of the Year.

She lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where, in addition to pursuing her love of art and illustration, she teaches writing classes, workshops, and summer camps in a variety of schools, libraries, and homeschool groups in the Nashville area, as well as online classes to kids around the world.
