America's Next Author!

Honey Jensen

Honey Jensen was born in Bloomington, Indiana in the fall of 1974. She is the youngest of six daughters born to her working class parents. In order for Honey's father to find work her parents moved her and two of her sisters to Naples, Florida in the early 1980's. Her other three sisters were already married with children so they did not make the move with the family. Growing up with an alcoholic father, Honey found writing an outlet for the turmoil in her life. She attended college at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. It was during this time her father was diagnosed with and died of lung cancer. Just before her graduation Honey met her husband at a wedding where she was a bridesmaid. He was the groomsman she walked with. A mere eleven meetings later Honey said "I do" and moved with him to Las Vegas, Nevada. After realizing "Sin City" was no place to start a family the couple wanted to head back east. By throwing a dart at the map the couple decided to move to Charlotte, North Carolina. So in December of 1999 with everything they owned in the back of moving truck, a loaf of bread and peanut butter and jelly they headed out across America. Although Honey and her husband had never seen Charotte, North Carolina after thirteen years and four kids they would never call anywhere else home!
