JENNIFER CRANE - AUTHOR
I started writing when I became a full time stay at home Mum, not because I had time on my hands, because I didn’t, but rather to keep my brain active and thinking of something other than the daily rushing around. It was a chance to escape into another world for a while, like reading, but I was doing the creating.
The first acknowledgment of my work was a
Commended Award from The Victorian Cancer Council 2008 Art Awards for my poem ‘A Writer’s Words’. In the same year I published my memoir, ‘Spillover’,
about the death of my horse to Hendra Virus. My children’s short story ‘My Reward’ was shortlisted for the Charlotte Duncan award in 2010 and I have
had two children’s short stories published on Australian Women online, ‘Super Flower Power’ in 2011 and ‘Told’ in 2012.
I grew up on an orchard and I gave up the art of ballet for horses, going on to compete in dressage and eventing and dabbling in Endurance riding, although I
still love the theatre. Horses got into my blood and a highlight was seeing the 2000 Olympic dressage and show jumping competitions in Sydney.
