Jenny Blackford’s YA-crossover novel set in ancient Delphi and Athens, The Priestess and the Slave, was described by bestseller Alison Goodman as ‘a compelling blend of vivid storytelling and meticulous research’.
Her poems, fantasy, science fiction and historical fiction have appeared in magazines and anthologies for people of all ages.
Jenny can talk about what it was like to be a slave girl in 5th century BCE Greece, or a Bronze Age princess in the Homeric world; how the Pythia of Apollo prophesied at Delphi, or how ancient magic worked; and ancient food, clothes and more.
She can also conduct writing workshops for people aged 9 to 90.
She lives in Newcastle, NSW.
