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: What Album Is the Soundtrack to Your Life? (Quiz!)

In The Brightsiders, Emmy uses music like therapy. Listening to her fave albums lifts her up when she’s down and puts her in the zone when she needs to rock the stage. Finding the perfect lyrics when she’s writing a new song helps her deal with all the drama around her, and allows her to express herself. That’s the power … Read More
