With an inveterate fascination in other worlds and times, J Tullos Hennig has managed a few lifetime professions in this world–equestrian, artist, dancer–but has never successfully managed to not be a writer. Ever.
She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her long-time Amazing Spouse, and is beholden to several geriatric equines on retirement pensions–erm, pastures.
With an inveterate fascination in other worlds and times, J Tullos Hennig has managed a few professions in this world–equestrian, dancer, teacher, artist–but has never successfully managed to not be a writer. Ever.
Nomad by birth and eclectic by nature, Jen lives with her longstanding Amazing Spouse on the Pacific Northwest coast. This merely encourages–nay, guarantees–already rampant hermetic and artistic tendencies, particularly in winter. Comparisons have also been made to a bridge troll. Hopefully emulating the one under the Fremont Bridge: moderately tolerant, but… you know. Bridge troll. An equally remarkable daughter and grandkids, as well as many students—human, equine, avian and canine—have taught her much of what she knows. Wild places, travel, and interlibrary loan fill the gaps in said education–
And merely encourages the boundless escapades of a press gang of invisible “friends”, who Will. Not. Be. Silenced.
J Tullos Hennig’s most recent work is a darkly magical, award-winning historical fantasy series re-imagining the legends of Robin Hood, in which both pagan and queer viewpoints are given respectful voice. A lifelong passion for history and myth is given its due with The Books of the Wode:

“The prose is poetic, powerful, insightful. Hennig has a masterful command of weaponry and battle-speak, as well of wode magic.”
—THE HISTORICAL NOVEL REVIEW
“The strong second installment of Hennig’s Wode series (after Greenwode) continues to reinvent the legend of Robin Hood. . . Thick with conflict and intrigue, this retelling turns a well-known legend into a fresh, earthy tale of human passions twisted by politics and ancient powers.”
“(The Books of the Wode) all fit comfortably under the genre umbrellas of Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Romance, and even Alternate History. Given the author’s innate ability to take classic lore and make it new again through works of fantasy, fans of other genres or literature in general are sure to enjoy these works as well.”
