Jenni Regan grew up in rural Dorset, moved to London when she was 19 and decided she liked it there. She has now been living in the city for the past 20 years, most recently on the ‘Essex borders’ with her husband and their daughter.
In her working life, Jenni has been a mental health support worker, a Senior Broadcast Journalist for the BBC and now works as a Senior Media Advisor for a mental health charity, advising scriptwriters on how to write characters with mental health problems.
Jenni loves the idea that women can be so many things and don’t fit into one role without being others. With this as part of her motivation she has written a book called The Girl Who Just Wanted to Have Fun. It is a story with a twist, of three women who are each successful in their own way, but who each harbour a problem they are struggling to hide from the outside world.
When she has free time, Jenni likes to keep fit by running and practising Yoga. She also sings in a choir and is a member of a community theatre group, enjoys travel, all things cultural and reads voraciously anything that crosses her path. And when she really wants to relax she does it with friends and a glass or two of wine.
In the future Jenni hopes to continue to travel and see as much of the world as possible, while still enjoying as much time with her family as she can.
