The Official Bio (From My Books)

JoLyn Brown was raised alongside a peach orchard where she worked with her family. Some of her favorite memories are of listening to stories told by her relatives. These stories and her own experiences provide inspiration for her writing. JoLyn’s first novel, Run, tells Morgan’s story and introduces readers to Preston Bensen and the Powell family. JoLyn’s other published works include You Are Worth It: Eternal Perspectives for a Young Woman, Values-Centered Activities for Young Women, Home Evenings for Newlyweds, the compilation A Circle of Sisters, and several short stories. She is currently working on a fantasy novel and plans to write a follow-up to Run and Break. JoLyn lives in Utah with her husband and two children. When she’s not writing, she sews, scrapbooks, reads, and spends time with her family.

A Little More About Me

While, like my official bio says, I grew up in small town in Utah on a peach farm, picking peaches wasn't my favorite thing, in fact far from it. I did love being outside and especially being with my cats. (I don't have any pets now, but my daughter has a crazy love for animals.)

I wanted to be an author from about fifth grade on. The dream flickered a bit as I went to college and got married. I decided it was time to be more practical and pursued an interest in Special Education and teaching. I loved working with children with special needs. 

After my son was born, I became a stay-at-home mom and found that my mind didn't want to leave my story worlds. I decided to write down my ideas, even if they didn't end up going anywhere. 

Now I'm a published author of six books. I'm still pursuing my love of teaching through presenting at writer's conferences and starting my own youth writers camps. I am available for book club and school visits! I would also be able to do presentations for youth with topics centering around my book You Are Worth It, Eternal Perspectives for Young Women.  For more information check out my contact page or email me at
