Jenni Ogden

Jenni Ogden lives with her husband on a rugged, remote, off-grid island 100 kms off the north-east coast of New Zealand. It is a place her four adult children and five grandchildren love to visit. During the NZ winters she escapes to the Australian tropics or travels to the US or UK, travel being another passion, along with reading (writing!) and conservation. Her new novel, THE MOON IS MISSING, set in London, New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, and on the very island Jenni lives on, will be published in September, 2020. A DROP IN THE OCEAN, her debut novel, set on another remote island on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, features a woman over forty, and explores Jenni’s favorite themes: friendship, family, love, hard choices, and coping with neurological or medical illness. In 2016 it won the Gold in the Nautilus Book Awards for Fiction, Large Publisher, (shared with Monica Wood's novel, 'The One-In-A-Million-Boy'), the Gold for the Sarton Women's Book Awards in Contemporary Fiction, the Gold in the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPYS) for Best Fiction: Australia and NZ, and the Silver in the Readers' Favorites International Book Awards for Women's Fiction. Writes Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times #1 best-selling author of 'The Deep End of the Ocean' and 'Two If By Sea'— “Reading A Drop in the Ocean was everything a reading experience should be, endearing and enduring, time spent with characters who seem to be people I already knew.” And from Ann Hood, New York Times best-selling author of 'The Knitting Circle' and 'The Obituary Writer'—“In A Drop in the Ocean, protagonist Anna Fergusson learns that love is about letting go. Jenni Ogden takes us on a sweeping journey, rich with unique characters and places, moving backward and forward in time, to reach this poignant and heartfelt lesson.” Before she took up fiction writing, Dr. Ogden enjoyed an international reputation as a neuropsychologist, and was awarded the Distinguished Career Award by the International Neuropsychological Society in 2015. Her non-fiction books include the classic text, FRACTURED MINDS, and a book for the general reader, TROUBLE IN MIND. Both relate the courageous struggles and triumphs of people who have suffered brain disorders.
