ABOUT OUR AUTHOR- JENNIFER CROSS: Jennifer wrote her first play when she was sixteen for a Sunday school performance. Following its success, she wrote the next year’s one too. However, it wasn’t until 2003 that she returned to playwriting. Challenging herself to see if she could write a musical comedy for child performers, her first mainstream play was born. Armed with the script in hand, an appointment was made with the Headteacher of a local school to which she had links through her main job as a Nanny. With negotiations complete, a drama club was soon set up at the school. Spearheaded by Jennifer as the club’s leader and the show’s Director, the premiere performance of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ was successfully shown in the school hall in July 2004. The following year ‘The Trouble in the Wood’ was written. Due to mass drop out of cast members a rapid re-think was needed as time was running out to curtain-up, and so ’The Story of the Willow Pattern’ was written and performed that summer. As Jennifer’s job situation changed, commitment to running the drama club had to give way and it wasn’t until 2008 that she was able to devote more attention to starting up the drama club again. By 2007, she was now working officially at the school, along with spending more time volunteering in the Foundation Stage. From this experience, she turned her hand to writing a Christmas play for the Foundation Stage children to perform that was adapted from a storybook. As the Spring Term approached, so did the Science Co-ordinator, and as a result a short assembly play called ‘Lost Forests’ was written for the Foundation Stage to perform. Unfortunately time constraints prevented fitting rehearsals into the timetable and so it remains, still waiting to be performed With the onset of 2008 Jennifer was now studying for an NVQ3 in Childcare, Learning and Development. Along with her doing her usual jobs and volunteering she still found time to write and run the drama club again. Hence by July 2008, the club was ready to perform Jennifer’s latest offering, ‘Beauty and the Beast’. In 2009, ‘Aladdin’ was the latest of Jennifer’s writings to make it to the school stage. Many ideas still bubble around in her head. Among them are snatches of ideas involving Saxons, Angles and Vikings; Beowulf, and Treasure Island; a circus, and a movie studio; nursery criminals, three pigs, and archaeology. At present the lightning bolt of inspiration hasn’t hit again, yet, but she’s always on the lookout. In the meantime,  she has just published a new version of Sleeping Beauty, and is continuing the writing of ‘Marvin and the Monster’, the other pantomime she has on the back burner. Currently, when she’s not writing or otherwise occupied, Jennifer works part-time as a Nanny, part-time as a TA, and part-time as a Midday Meal Supervisor. She is also currently waiting to embark on a Foundation Degree in the Early Years which makes up the next leg on her road to becoming a fully qualified teacher herself.
