Reader & Writer


Hi! I’m Jen, a writer, geek + fangirl.

When I’m not writing YA stories, I love binge-watching my favourite shows on Netflix, eating Mexican food, and going to pop culture conventions.

I'm the author of QUEENS OF GEEK, a geeky Contemporary/LGBT romance about fandom, cosplay and friendship, and THE BRIGHTSIDERS, a rockstar contemporary/LGBT novel about fame, failure, and falling in love.

I also wrote The Eva Series, a YA dystopian adventure that has reached over 3 million reads on Wattpad and was an Amazon indie bestseller.

Swoon Author Jen Wilde: A Series of Surprising Events

I didn’t always want to be an author. In fact, up until my mid-twenties, it wasn’t even on my radar. Sure, I thought it sounded like an amazing job, but it seemed so out of reach that I never even entertained the idea. I didn’t think it was something I’d be good at, so I didn ... Read More
