Downward Mule is Jenna's giant leap into children's literature. But she's been publishing everything from poems to articles since adolescence. From middle school to grad school, the magazine scene to book publishing, Jenna gleans inspiration from children – whether those she pens about or teaches during yoga sessions. 


Jenna is working on a hooful of other manuscripts in between writing gigs and giggles with her kids.

The heat spoils their milk.
It makes the sheep too tired to give fleece.
The goats feel weak in the knees.
The hens can’t lay an egg. Clonk.  

What’s a mule to do?  ​
