About Jenni McKinney

Meet the Author

Jenni McKinney

Southern fiction author Jenni McKinney writes nonfiction, speculative fiction, and romantic suspense from a Christian worldview. 

A graduate of Tennessee Temple University and Liberty University, Jenni enjoys learning about Jesus Christ and joining with Him as He moves in the world. Her greatest passion is to see the scales fall from the eyes of fellow humans as they embrace deeper levels of truth.

In 2012, Jenni published her first book, The Adventures of Logan and Bo, a fiction story about a little boy facing down bullies and helping a trapped animal. Her second book, How to Make Money as a Kid, followed in 2014 and offered money-making ideas for children who are too young to get a “real” job.

Jenni and her husband currently live in North Georgia and serve as caretakers to a dozen species of birds. 


Jenni had the privilege of growing up in church. She was born again in 1984 and her life was radically changed. In 1997, she moved to Guatemala to do mission work for three years. While there, she began writing her first novel (it was not published). In 2003, she began writing movie reviews for the local paper – her first paid writing gig. In 2012, she published her first children’s book.
