About the author

Jenna Brooks

“In general, I write about women’s issues. But my passion in life is to change the way the culture regards battered women, and help them to reclaim their lives after escaping an abuser.” - Jenna Brooks

A staunch Mothers Rights advocate, Jenna Brooks is a bestselling novelist, a seminar author and instructor, a columnist, and a professionally trained and certified coach, specializing in divorce, post-divorce, and Domestic Violence. She has a particular interest in the issues confronting Christian women, and is certified by The American Association of Christian Counselors.

The award-winning author of the October Snow series, Jenna is also the creator of several seminars and coaching processes. She is trained in Batterer Intervention, Trauma and Trauma Informed Care, and is a former state-certified Crisis Advocate and Domestic Violence Hotline veteran.

Jenna says, “I concentrate on advocacy for battered mothers because in my experience, the Family Court often takes up where an abuser leaves off.  Too often, these women are every bit as injured by a paternalistic, even oppressive Family Court system as they are by an abuser. Their experiences in the court are simply another betrayal. As a society, we pay little attention to the outcome of battered mothers - both legally and culturally.”

Jenna is a former columnist for The Derry News and The Bangor Daily News, and is the former host of “The Café” on WSMN Radio out of Nashua, NH. Her debut novel, October Snow, is the winner of the 2014 Readers Favorite Awards/Drama.
