Jennifer Hoff Author



Jennifer Hoff is passionate about writing historical romance. History, especially Australia’s colourful past, permeates her stories. Blighted dreams, moral dilemmas and unrequited love are doubly resonant when set against a background of Victorian paternalism or the folly of war on the Western Front. Her love of travel is an excuse to dream up unusual back stories for her characters. She has a strong interest in short stories and has won the Rasberry and Vine and Romance Writers of Australia Little Gems short story contest, is a contest judge, and is published in several anthologies.

Jennifer lives in a rainforest setting in the Northern Rivers with her long-suffering husband, four-legged literary critic Sebastian, a family of possums and visiting wallabies. She enjoys propagating hippeastrums, shopping in country markets, exploring Australia’s colonial heritage and having coffee with good friends. Her historical romantic suspense novel, Postcards from Ka’anapali, set in Hawaii on the eve of World War 1 was released at the 2015 Byron Bay Writers Festival.

After travelling to exotic locations in the Pacific Islands, Jennifer is hard at work on her new novel The Sea Wife set in the Whitsunday Islands in 1856.
