Jenna Glass made her foray into epic fantasy with The Women’s War, but she wrote her first book—an “autobiography”—in the fifth grade. She began writing in earnest in college and proceeded to collect a dizzying array of rejections for her first seventeen novels. Nevertheless, she persisted, and her eighteenth novel became her first commercial sale. Within a few years, Glass became a full-time writer, and she has never looked back. She has published more than twenty novels under various names.
