Award-winning author of the Secrets of My Hollywood Life, Fairy Tale Reform School, and Royal Academy Rebels series
ABOUT JEN CALONITA
When Jen Calonita was in primary school, she was a reluctant reader. It wasn't till one of her teachers helped her way that she grew to love books and eventually started writing her own short stories. This love of writing became a life-long passion. A former entertainment editor at a teen magazine, Jen started out her career chronicling backstage life at concerts with Justin Timberlake and interviewing Zac Efron on film sets. It was her work in the entertainment world that inspired her first series, Secrets of My Hollywood Life. The six-book series about a teen starlet named Kaitlin Burke who grew weary of the fame game, but loved being an actress was published in nine countries.
In her first middle grade series, Fairy Tale Reform School, readers explore a school run by Cinderella's formerly wicked stepmother. The series (Flunked, Charmed, Tricked, Switched, and Wished, which will be released March 2019) are told from spunky young former thief, Gillian Cobbler. In Jen's other middle grade series, Royal Academy Rebels, readers get a look at another school in that kingdom and meet the Misfits that are trying to change the way their very rigid school is run. Jen loves talking about books and also offers writing workshop programs to young writers.
