Jennifer Kaul is the author of the YA short story “The Price of Words,” as well as the poems featured on this site. She has composed several short stories and informational texts for the educational market and is currently revising her first novel.

Many of Jennifer’s pieces stem from the happenings in our world and the what-ifs that swirl around her head as a result. She especially enjoys writing for children and young adults because, as Lois Lowry says in her dedication page of The Giver, they are “to whom we entrust the future.” Through her writing, she hopes to encourage thought, spark conversation, and make the world a better place.

Jennifer lives in Minnesota with her wonderfully goofy husband and their little girl. In addition to writing, she enjoys reading, playing the clarinet, exploring new places, and spending time with family and friends.
