Jenna Morrison

Author of A Brother's Truth

Jenna Morrison was born in Denver, Colorado. At a very young age, she became a prolific reader, painter, and writer.

Then, at the age of eleven, Jenna wrote her first flash-fiction narrative, ‘My First Horse,’ as a school assignment for her fifth-grade class. After her teacher read her work, she submitted the story to the Penguin Classics Essay Contest. She became the youngest person ever to enter the competition, competing against sixteen to eighteen-year-olds. Jenna lost the contest; the judges noted that her story was ‘too sad.’ A year later, her narrative was published in the local Elbert County newspaper.

In 2010, Jenna wrote a short story for her eighth-grade school assignment, ‘The Forbidden, The Untold Secret.’  Another teacher recognized her abilities and encouraged her to submit her story to the NaNoWriMo contest. That month, she won the competition; she self-published her short story that year. Additionally, her artwork was invited into the DPAIG Art Gallery, and she became the youngest person to join the Parker Artists Guild.

In 2011, Jenna’s father took his own life after battling depression for many years. She put down the pen and the brushes, and resigned from the guild and art gallery.

In 2014, she wrote and self-published her second short-story, ‘Suicide Survivor,’ a coping mechanism for her father’s death.

Jenna graduated from high school in 2015. In 2017, she attended Regis University, then Aspen University. In her junior year of college, she co-taught and tutored students at Harvard University and Regis University.

In 2021, Morrison became a senior in college, earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Management.
