WorrywartJenni Kaye grew up reading books about big red dogs, cats with hats, and soups made of stone. Now she shares these tales with her daughter and son. Kaye, also known as J.K. Mahal, is a graduate of Chula Vista Performing Arts High School and Loyola Marymount University. She worked as a newspaper journalist, page designer and editor, as well as a performing arts center publicist, before devoting herself to writing books.

Kaye lives on a hill in Santa Cruz with her husband, children, cat, dog, four fish (one of whom is named Bob) and a smattering of plants. She loves to hear from her readers. You can contact her at jen (at) jennikaye (dot) com.
