After receiving a B.A in English Writing, Jenson wrote for various newspaper and magazines before returning to her passion: Children's Literature with her publication of Jon and the Soggy Leaf and Sharp Bites and Other Pesky Poems. Today, as a mother of three, she has added her children’s comedic perspective to her stories, offering up additional material for her stories.
''Many of the stories I've written were created after trying to come up with extra bedtime material for my daughters, who never wanted story time to be done. We called these additional tales, 'stories from my head'- something my kids requested nightly.''
