Jenn Marie Thorne graduated from NYU-Tisch with a BFA in drama and quickly realized she was having more fun writing plays than performing in them. When a flurry of political scandals hit the news, Jenn wondered what the kids at the center of the media’s attention must be going through, and so began THE WRONG SIDE OF RIGHT, her debut novel. Jenn lives and writes in beautiful Gulfport, Florida, alongside her husband, two sons and hound dog Molly.
