Jennifer L Rothwell

Jennifer L. Rothwell always wanted to call herself an author.

She dreamt of saying it one day, back when she was scribbling stories in her endless piles of notebooks and back when she would sneakily read whatever novel she was immersed in by hiding it inside the dust jacket of To Kill A Mockingbird at school.

(Don't worry, she'd already read it. To Kill A Mockingbird remains one of her favourite novels.)

She is also a teacher, a coffee drinker, a cat enthusiast, a keen foodie and most importantly, a mother to Sebastian.

Jennifer writes Young Adult fantasy because she never really grew up and she still can't believe that she's an adult. But at least now she can call herself an author.

The Firelighters Book One: A Spark Of Fire

On her sixteenth birthday, Felix prepares to leave the orphanage where she has lived since she was born. What lies ahead of her? Armed with her baby blanket and a library card, she heads for the Magistry of London, ruled by Magicians, including Corbin Godspell.

She hopes to find information about her parents, who died shortly after her birth, but where should she begin?
