Jenni Spangler

  • 5 stars across 7 books
Jenni Spangler's first love was the theatre. Frustrated with the lack of juicy parts for teens, she began writing her own and never looked back. She likes to explore different genres in her writing, from funny and spooky middle grade stories, to contemporary and realistic YA fiction.

Jenni has written four titles for Badger Learning: Wanted from their bone-chilling series Papercuts II, Stop and Torn from their Two Sides series, and The Cell from their Between the Lines II series.
