Jenna Grinstead

Jenna Grinstead is a whimsical Midwesterner with a penchant for magic and a deep desire for a world where the weird and different are embraced and celebrated.

​She is a graduate of The Ohio State University where she studied journalism. She found a way to turn her imagination and creativity into a career in marketing, while writing young adult and middle grade fiction. She often conducts workshops and speaks on writing, world-building, social media and marketing.

Jenna is a member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Central Ohio Fiction Writers and Women’s Fiction Writers Association. When she’s not plotting her next story you can find her devouring novels and mint chocolate chip ice cream in her house with California Poppies painted across the garage.

She is represented by Analieze Cervantes with The Harvey Klinger Literary Agency. Connect with Jenna on Twitter at @storiestobe and on Facebook at Grinstead.


Her young adult romance manuscripts have won several regional writing awards,
including The Maggie, The Stiletto and The Indiana Golden Opportunity.
