Early and Personal Life

Growing up in Oakland in Maryland, Jenny Hickman always had a creative streak, but her love of reading would really take hold following her graduation from high-school. Reading a romance from her mother, she would spend the family summer vacation reading it, which would nurture her passion for literature. Over time she would come to find her own voice as an author, developing her own distinctly unique approach to the genre.

From her first paperback romance reading it on the beach during a summer vacation to her current career as an author, she would come a long way. Moving into the YA genre, she would craft herself her own niche in the publishing industry, establishing her own style. Currently living in Count Tipperary in Ireland where she’s moved with her husband, she now has two children and continues to write to this very day.

Writing Career

One of the first novels that Jenny Hickman would release was titled ”The Mirrors at Barnard Hall,’ and this would come out in 2012. Working as a stand-alone, she would release another self-contained novel not long after called ‘Semester of Thursdays’ in December. Both of these would help to establish her as an author, with her third novel, ‘Flight Risk,’ being released the following year in 2013.

In 2020 she would release ‘The PAN,’ which was the first in her ‘PAN Trilogy’ of books, with which she would really make a name for herself. Using fairy-tale re-tellings as the basis of the series, Hickman would update the stories for a modern and contemporary audience. Appealing to critics and the general public alike, she continues to make a name for herself, which will carry on for a long time yet.

The CROC

Initially published through the ‘Midnight Tide Publishing’ label, this would first come out in 2021 on the 4th of August. It would also be the third and final part in ‘The PAN Trilogy’ of fantasy novels, wrapping the series up and bringing it to a close. Set around the story of Peter Pan, it’s a modern retelling for a Young Adult audience, with plenty of contemporary themes, and they should be read in order.

Dealing with her relationship and her own immortality, Vivienne has a set of tough decisions placed ahead of her. Having to watch as woman he loves becomes more and more forgetful, Deacon must cope too, as he also finds secrets are being exposed by those he trusted. With the Pan searching for a cure, he hopes to save all of the forgetful, and help regain all their memories of the past. Meanwhile Hook is looking to get what they want at whatever cost too, as Neverland may never be the same again.

This retelling of Peter Pan works on numerous different levels, making it a must for any fans of the fantasy genre. Finishing the series in a satisfactory manner, it really delivers everything that the audience have been hoping for. There’s so many twists and turns that it really delivers, as it’s both an exciting and addicting read in equal measure.

Semester of Thursdays

First released on the 1st of December back in 2012, this would be the second novel from Jenny Hickman, being published not long after her first. Establishing the tone for much of what what was to follow, it’s perfect for any fans of her as a writer looking to learn more about her development as a novelist. A stand-alone title, it works with its own self-contained narrative, telling a story that’s a realistic character based drama.

Moving in with her best-friend Lena Whyte, the normally straight-laced Meredith Westbrook is pulled into her Thursday night ritual of drinking and one-night stands. This is all completely new to Meredith as she watches her friend’s copious consumption of alcohol and sleeping with strangers from a distance. Soon though, she finds herself drawn slowly into this world too, as the unpredictability of the college nightlife begins to take hold. Not only that, but she also soon finds herself yearning and craving a man that she really should not yearn for.

There’s plenty for the reader to immerse themselves in here, as the dialogue and characters really do feel alive. Looking at the unravelling of events from both the male and the female perspectives, she really does get to the bottom of it. It’s a nuanced story with a lot to offer, showing clear signs of talent from Hickman early on, with this entertaining and compelling story.
