About

Hi, I’m Jemma Saunders. (Also known in some circles as Jemma Penny, but more of that in my first blog for this site). Thanks for visiting.

In my day job, I manage placements for MA students aspiring to work in the film and television industries. I genuinely love it. By night… well, I’d like to think I’m a writer. I have had two historical eBooks published (one of which is also available in print) and recently had a travel piece featured in The Telegraph.

For as long as I can remember I’ve loved putting pen to paper (or more commonly now, fingers to keyboard) and building words into stories, accounts and arguments. This site houses a mixture of musings on things that make me tick (history, employability, travel, maybe even cake…) alongside the odd foray into my imagination.
