Jayne Allen

Jayne Allen (pen name), in her life outside of writing, is a serial entrepreneur, Harvard-trained attorney, and engineer. She dabbles in standup comedy, tries to learn one new thing a week, and relishes laughter and champagne bubbles with her girlfriends and family. Originally from Detroit, when not writing "chocolate chick lit with a conscience," she's spending time with her friends and family, keeping one ear open for her next saucy tale. Jayne writes fiction out of life experiences, calling every character "fragments of reality strung together by imagination" and strives to tell stories that stick to your bones. Her series Black Girls Must Die Exhausted she calls "chocolate chick lit with a conscience," touching upon contemporary women's issues such as workplace womanhood, race, fertility, modern relationships and mental health awareness. Her writing echoes her desire to bring both multiculturalism and multidimensionality to contemporary women's fiction with dynamic female protagonists who also happen to be black. She has authored four non-fiction books, in addition to books one and two in the Black Girls Must Die Exhausted trilogy which has sold over 10,000 copies worldwide. She is most active on Instagram at @JayneAllenWrites, where she hosts a weekly Sunday live writer's workshop. Jayne is also the founder of Book Genius, an online publishing course opening in Summer 2020. For newsletter visit: www.JayneAllen.com
