About The Author



Jennifer Wright has been writing since middle school, eventually earning a master’s degree in journalism from Indiana University. However, it took only a few short months of covering the local news to realize that writing fiction is much better for the soul–and definitely way more fun. A born and bred Hoosier, she was swept off her feet by an Air Force pilot and has spent the past decade traveling the world and, every few years, attempting to make old curtains fit in the windows of a new home.

She currently resides in New Mexico with her husband and two children.

Her debut novel, 'If It Rains,' was nominated for a Kipp Award, and her second novel, 'Come Down Somewhere,' was a 2023 Carol Award finalist. She is a member of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers). 

You can connect with her on Facebook or Instagram, but only if you can handle seeing way too many pictures of her guinea pigs. 

"A fiercely woven tale from the birth of the atomic age, Jennifer L. Wright's unflinching look at fractured friendships, war-tested families, and hard-won faith grab readers from the start and won't let go. "

Patricia Raybon, author of 'All That Is Secret,'

on 'Come Down Somewhere'

"The treatment of historical events is gritty and unflinching, similar to other Dust Bowl fiction, like Susie Finkbeiner's 'Cup of Dust' or Kristin Hannah's 'Four Winds.' Character growth is the highlight of this novel."

"'Come Down Somewhere' is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, war on the home front, and all that threatens the deepest parts of our souls...a must-read."

Jaime Jo Wright, author of 'The Souls of Lost Lake,'
