Kerensa Jennings is an award winning storyteller, strategist, writer, producer and professor. Kerensa’s TV work took her all over the world, covering everything from geo-politics to palaeontology, and her time as Programme Editor of Breakfast with Frost coincided with the life-changing events of 9/11. The knowledge and experience she gained in psychology by qualifying and practising as an Executive Coach deepened her fascination with the human mind. Her writing explores the interplay between nature and nurture, and the influences that make us who we are. While a scholar at Oxford, her lifelong passion for poetry took flight. Kerensa lives in West London and has developed a career in digital enterprise. Her first novel Seas of Snow became a five-star bestseller within months of publication.
