I’m Jenni Laplow, and I am writing my first novel.

“Mandy & Mia” is Women’s Fiction. A single mother, Mandy, and her teenage daughter, Mia, are separately fighting for attention from the men in their lives. They have a traumatic past, and Mandy’s alcoholism brings them to a place of ultimatums as a broken family.

Right now, it is available for voting at Something Or Other Publishing.
Once I reach 1,000 VOTES, SOOP will publish my book!

My writing journey started when I was young, I always remember wanting to be a writer. I was born in Midland, MI where I grew up in a family surrounded by storytelling and books.

I graduated from Central Michigan University and moved to Metro-Detroit with my (now) husband, Randy. We live in the Lakes Area with our two daughters, one puggle and one calico cutie.

I’ve taken all kinds of writing classes, written a lot of poetry, blogged as SAHM who blogs and had multiple online publications. I also participated in NanoWriMo 2021.
I share a lot about my writing journey on my website, thank you for being here!
