Jennifer Snow

Jennifer Snow grew up in St. John’s, Newfoundland and moved out West to complete her degree in Linguistics and Psychology in 2002. Halfway through a Bridge to PhD program, she realized she wasn’t pursuing her real passion. A trip down memory lane with her high school yearbook reminded her that her 18 year old self had promised to be a writer. So, she started writing again with a goal of getting her stories published.

While on maternity leave with her son, Jennifer wrote and submitted her first holiday romance themed novella to a small boutique publisher in New York. They contracted the novella and her second one and her dream of becoming a published author had been realized. From there, she queried agents and started writing longer works of fiction.

Since her first publication in 2011, she has published 21 books with various publishers, such as Berkley, Hachette Book Group, and Harper Collins/Harlequin. 


Her small town, sweet romance series, A Brookhollow Story, won many awards and her Colorado Ice novel, Maybe This Time was given a starred review from Publishers Weekly.

In 2017, she decided to try writing a domestic thriller, with no idea whether or not she could pull it off. Luckily, her agent, Jill Marsal at the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency is a champion for her career and after many revisions, her first thriller, All The Lovely Pieces was sold to Amazon Publishing’s Thomas & Mercer in a two book deal, for publication in 2019 under the pen name, J. M. Winchester. Now, Jennifer/ J.M. has to somehow write another one.

She recently signed a new contract for more single title romance books with Harlequin’s HQN line, with the first book, Mistletoe Rescue set for publication in November 2019. As well, her debut Women’s Fiction novel is currently out on submission, hoping to find a home in the new year.

Jennifer has also recently started writing screenplays and scripts for television. She was offered representation for her film work in August 2018 and is now managed by JD DeWitt from 5 x 5 Productions and her first screenplay, a holiday rom-com, was picked up by them for production.

She was a volunteer writer in residence at Audrey’s Books in 2017 and she has presented at many conferences world-wide. She loves inspiring and encouraging new writers to follow their dream to publication.
