as she breaks the bonds of reality to explore new frontiers!
V.L. Jennings writes because she is intrigued by the way writing removes the limitations of this earth. From an early age, she was amazed at how words strung together could create new worlds. Reading gave her new places to explore that she would never be able to go to otherwise (like other planets). She also uses her writing to help convince people of all ages that they are capable of so much more. She wants to inspire them to reach for their full potential, do things they've never done before, and achieve things they may not have thought possible. (Would you like to show your support?)
V.L. Jennings prefers writing for middle school age students because that age is when she found herself struggling between the adult world and the idea that she should give up her imagination. She enjoyed reading science fiction because it combined her love of science with her desire to figure out the universe around her. During her teen years she was often disappointed to find fewer and fewer science fiction books in the library geared toward her age level.
V.L. Jennings believes that science fiction is primarily about asking questions (in other words- speculating), and secondly about exploring the universe with those questions in tow. She is always thinking up new questions; a speculator at heart. V.L. Jennings wants to encourage people, especially middle schoolers, to keep asking questions and try to see things from different angles. Never stop exploring the hows and whys of the universe around you. This is where the real wisdom comes from and how our human potential grows!
