Jenny Gates

Inspired by my 46 years as a technical writer, scientific editor, and substantive book editor, I now write screenplays and stageplays, fiction and nonfiction books (for adults and children), speeches, poetry, and short stories. Other interests include photography, music, reading, walking, Australian chocolate, and coffee with friends.
