About Me


Jennifer Brody’s award-winning novel The 13th Continuum sold to Turner Publishing in a 3-book deal and is being packaged into a feature film. The book is a Gold Medal Winner (Young Adult – Sci-Fi/Fantasy) from the Independent Publisher‘s Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. Return of the Continuums and The United Continuums (July 11, 2017) complete this epic trilogy.

Jennifer is a graduate of Harvard University, a creative writing instructor at the Writing Pad, and a volunteer mentor for the Young Storytellers Foundation. She founded and runs BookPod, a social media group for authors, and she lives and writes in LA. After studying film at Harvard University, she began her career in Hollywood. Highlights include working for Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and New Line Cinema, most notably on “The Lord of the Rings” films and “The Golden Compass.” In 2008, she produced the film “Make It Happen” for The Weinstein Company. She has attended the Sirenland Writers Conference (Meg Wolitzer workshop), Tin House Summer Writers Workshop (Victor LaValle workshop), The Lemon Tree House Residency for Writers, and has been accepted for a residency at the Helen R. Whiteley Center, run by the University of Washington.

Originally heralding from St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Jennifer grew up in the Star City of the South (home of the world’s largest freestanding illuminated manmade star). After graduating from Patrick Henry High School (Go Patriots!), she worked her way north for college (and learned how to say “Park the car in the Harvard Yard” with a proper Boston accent), before she absconded west in pursuit of her Tinseltown dreams… and a non-arctic climate.

After almost a decade spent slaving away on some respectable (but mostly subpar) movies, she finally took the plunge (into the deep end of the pool without a life vest) and began writing full time. Some days, she thinks that was undertaken during a moment of pure insanity, but most days she knows that it was the best decision that she ever made (aside from marrying her paramour of more than fifteen years and adopting her mini-goldendoodle puppy, whom she affectionately calls “The Adorable Monster”).
