Hello, I’m Jennifer Skinnell. I have had many different jobs over the years, from starting out as a legal secretary to working in a fabric store when my children were younger, to a rewarding job of teaching preschool for nine years. I feel the skills I have learned at each job have helped me to become more confident in who I am as an author, an editor & proofreader, and a travel blogger.

JLSkinnell Editing & Proofing

As a freelance editor and proofreader, I perform light editing and final proofreading for your manuscript.

While my favorite genre is fiction, I have a broad portfolio of authors I have helped to self-publish on Amazon.

Hope Springs Romance Series

I am the author of the Hope Springs Romance Series, which is available on Amazon in eBook, Kindle Unlimited, and paperback. One Sweet Development, Patience For LoveIt’s Time To Love Again, The Inn at Hope Springs, and A Grandmother’s Wish tell the stories of the women of Hope Springs and how their love of quilting and their friendships get them through life’s challenges and relationships.

“Good friends are like quilts, they age with you and never lose their warmth.” Author unknown
